Protein

Keratin, type II cytoskeletal 6A

Gene

KRT6A

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Epidermis-specific type I keratin involved in wound healing. Involved in the activation of follicular keratinocytes after wounding, while it does not play a major role in keratinocyte proliferation or migration. Participates in the regulation of epithelial migration by inhibiting the activity of SRC during wound repair.By similarity

Miscellaneous

There are at least six isoforms of human type II keratin-6 (K6), K6A being the most abundant representing about 77% of all forms found in epithelia.
There are two types of cytoskeletal and microfibrillar keratin, I (acidic) and II (neutral to basic) (40-55 and 56-70 kDa, respectively).
