FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is a member of the type II keratin family clustered on the long arm of chromosome 12. Type I and type II keratins heteropolymerize to form intermediate-sized filaments in the cytoplasm of epithelial cells. This gene is expressed in the companion layer, upper germinative matrix region of the hair follicle, and medulla of the hair shaft. The encoded protein plays an essential role in hair and nail formation. Variations in this gene have been associated with the hair disorders pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB) and loose anagen hair syndrome (LAHS). [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-in mutation that results in the deletion of the highly conserved asparagine residue (N159) in the helix initiation peptide of this gene develop hair shaft and nail abnormalities resembling pachyonychia congenita. [provided by MGI curators]
