Summaries for KRT10 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KRT10 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the type I (acidic) cytokeratin family, which belongs to the superfamily of intermediate filament (IF) proteins. Keratins are heteropolymeric structural proteins which form the intermediate filament. These filaments, along with actin microfilaments and microtubules, compose the cytoskeleton of epithelial cells. Mutations in this gene are associated with epidermolytic hyperkeratosis. This gene is located within a cluster of keratin family members on chromosome 17q21. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

  • Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (EHK) [MIM:113800]: An autosomal dominant skin disorder characterized by widespread blistering and an ichthyotic erythroderma at birth that persist into adulthood. Histologically there is a diffuse epidermolytic degeneration in the lower spinous layer of the epidermis. Within a few weeks from birth, erythroderma and blister formation diminish and hyperkeratoses develop. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10201536, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1380725, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1381287, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21271994, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7507150, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7507152, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7508181, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7512983, ECO:0000269 Ref.7}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Erythroderma, ichthyosiform, congenital reticular (CRIE) [MIM:609165]: A rare skin condition characterized by slowly enlarging islands of normal skin surrounded by erythematous ichthyotic patches in a reticulated pattern. The condition starts in infancy as a lamellar ichthyosis, with small islands of normal skin resembling confetti appearing in late childhood and at puberty. Histopathologic findings include band-like parakeratosis, psoriasiform acanthosis, and vacuolization of keratinocytes with binucleated cells in the upper epidermis, sometimes associated with amyloid deposition in the dermis. Ultrastructural abnormalities include perinuclear shells formed from a network of fine filaments in the upper epidermis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20798280}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Ichthyosis annular epidermolytic (AEI) [MIM:607602]: A skin disorder resembling bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma. Affected individuals present with bullous ichthyosis in early childhood and hyperkeratotic lichenified plaques in the flexural areas and extensor surfaces at later ages. The feature that distinguishes AEI from BCIE is dramatic episodes of flares of annular polycyclic plaques with scale, which coalesce to involve most of the body surface and can persist for several weeks or even months. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:9036939, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9856845}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
