A gene on chromosome 17q12-q21.2 that encodes a type-I intermediate filament keratin, which is expressed in corneal epithelia. KRT13 is paired with KRT4 and expressed in the suprabasal layers of non-cornified stratified epithelia.

Molecular pathology
KRT13 mutations are associated with autosomal dominant white sponge nevus.
