I am looking for evidence that Keratin 8 is expressed in human taste
cells and/or salivary ducts.  The evidence needs to be direct, but need not
be extensive.  A reference to a book or study using antibodies is
sufficient as long as it is the original reference and not a
derivative.  I am finding evidence of this keratin in mice and rats,
but no mention of keratins other than 19 and 20 in humans.
There is no answer at this time.
