KRT4

A gene on chromosome 12q13.13 that encodes a type-II cytokeratin that is specifically co-expressed in differentiated layers of mucosal and oesophageal epithelia with family member KRT13.

Molecular pathology
KRT4 mutations are associated with white sponge nevus, which is characterised by oral, oesophageal and anal leukoplakia.

The data in Table 1 also showed that the nanomicelles prepared at neutral pH in mass ratio of casein to keratin 4: 1 had the highest intensity and relatively narrow PDI.
Stable complex nanomicelles can be acquired at the neutral pH in the mass ratio of casein to keratin 4:1, and the absolute value of [zeta]-potential was 22.8 mV.
