FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the type I (acidic) keratin 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. The mouse type I keratin genes are clustered in a region of chromosome 11. The encoded protein is involved in the formation of intermediate filaments in the inner root sheath.

PHENOTYPE: Newborn heterozygotes show a slight bending of the whiskers. At ~P12, the coat develops a loose wave pattern. Whiskers of homozygotes are more curly and irregular while coat waviness occurs earlier and is more prominent. Adult coats are not waved but remains rough in texture. [provided by MGI curators]
