KRT14

(redirected from cytokeratin 14)

KRT14

A gene on chromosome 17q12-q21 that encodes a type-I intermediate filament keratin, which typically forms a heterotetramer with KRT5 (type-II) keratins that together form the cytoskeleton of epithelial cells.

Molecular pathology
KRT14 mutations are associated with epidermolysis bullosa simplex.
