KRT10

A gene on chromosome 17q21 that encodes a type-I (acidic) member of the cytokeratin family, which belongs to the superfamily of intermediate filaments, that with actin microfilaments and microtubules forms the epithelial cell cytoskeleton.

Molecular pathology
KRT10 mutations cause epidermolytic hyperkeratosis.

Conversely, compartimentalization and expression of the marker of differentiation, such as KRT10, rather weak in the suprabasal layer epidermis of IMQ-treated mice, were restored by treatment with the drug (Figure 5).
Immunohistochemistry analysis of mouse skin left untreated (i), IMQ-treated (ii), and IMQ-treated in the presence of tofacitinib (iii) shows reduction of positive CD3, LY6G, Ki67, CD11c, and CD11b cells and an increase of KRT10 in the epidermis after tofacitinib treatment.
