Technical Data
Cytokeratin 10, 13 (KRT10, KRT13)
Among the cytoplasmic intermediate filaments (IF) proteins, keratins make up the largest family and are expressed specifically in epithelial cells in a cell-specific manner. Keratins include more than 20 unique gene products (termed K1-K20) that are divided into type I (K9-K20) and type II (K1-K8). Most epithelial cells express at least one type I and one type II keratin as their predominant IF protein complement in an epithelial cell-specific manner. Cytokeratin 10 and 13 are members of the type I (acidic) cytokeratin family. Cytokeratin 10 is synthesized in the suprabasal cell layers of certain stratified epithelia, in an endogenous differentiation program and is expressed in certain epithelial tumors and is generally associated with keratin-1. Its deficiency leads to epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (EHK). Cytokeratin 13 is paired with keratin 4 and expressed in the suprabasal layers of non-cornified stratified epithelia. Mutations in Cytokeratin 13 have been associated with the autosomal dominant disorder White Sponge Nevus. The type I cytokeratins are clustered in a region of chromosome 17q21.2. Gene Bank Accession No: NP_000412.2 (KRT10), Gene Bank Accession No: NP_705694.1 (KRT13)
