Gene: KRTAP2-4 (keratin associated protein 2-4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KRTAP2-4
Name: keratin associated protein 2-4
Description: This protein is a member of the keratin-associated protein (KAP) family. The KAP proteins form a matrix of keratin intermediate filaments which contribute to the structure of hair fibers. KAP family members appear to have unique, family-specific amino- and carboxyl-terminal regions and are subdivided into three multi-gene families according to amino acid composition: the high sulfur, the ultrahigh sulfur, and the high tyrosine/glycine KAPs. This protein is a member of the high sulfur KAP family and the gene is localized to a cluster of KAPs at 17q12-q21. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
