Gene: EPPK1 (epiplakin 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EPPK1
Name: epiplakin 1
Description: Exhibits intermediate filament binding activity. Involved in several processes, including intermediate filament organization; negative regulation of epithelial cell proliferation; and negative regulation of wound healing. Localizes to several cellular components, including the bicellular tight junction; keratin filament; and perinucleolar compartment. Predicted to colocalize with the intermediate filament.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 450 kDa epidermal antigen; epidermal autoantigen 450K; EPIPL; EPIPL1; epiplakin
