Keratins are intermediate filament proteins responsible for the structural integrity of epithelial cells and are subdivided into epithelial keratins and hair keratins. The type II keratins are clustered in a region of chromosome 12q13. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2009]
GeneCards Summary for KRT6C Gene
KRT6C (Keratin 6C, Type II) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KRT6C include palmoplantar keratoderma, nonepidermolytic, focal or diffuse and autosomal dominant focal non-epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma with plantar blistering. Among its related pathways are Cytoskeletal Signaling and Cytoskeleton remodeling Neurofilaments. GO annotations related to this gene include structural molecule activity. An important paralog of this gene is KRT82.
