keratin 14

Gene Summary

This gene encodes a member of the keratin family, the most diverse group of intermediate filaments. This gene product, a type I keratin, is usually found as a heterotetramer with two keratin 5 molecules, a type II keratin. Together they form the cytoskeleton of epithelial cells. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]
