GeneID: 3856 Human KRT8

Swiss-port # P05787 Human Keratin, type II cytoskeletal 8

Gene Symbol KRT8
Gene Full Name keratin 8, type II
Background 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. The product of this gene typically dimerizes with keratin 18 to form an intermediate filament in simple single-layered epithelial cells. This protein plays a role in maintaining cellular structural integrity and also functions in signal transduction and cellular differentiation. Mutations in this gene cause cryptogenic cirrhosis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]
Function Together with KRT19, helps to link the contractile apparatus to dystrophin at the costameres of striated muscle. [UniProt]
Calculated MW 54 kDa
PTM Phosphorylation on serine residues is enhanced during EGF stimulation and mitosis. Ser-74 phosphorylation plays an important role in keratin filament reorganization.
O-glycosylated. O-GlcNAcylation at multiple sites increases solubility, and decreases stability by inducing proteasomal degradation.
O-glycosylated (O-GlcNAcylated), in a cell cycle-dependent manner.
