intermediate-filament proteins

intermediate-filament proteins

Protein elements in the cytoskeleton of diameters intermediate between those of microfilaments and microtubules. They include keratins, vimetin, desmin, peripherin, syncoilin, alpha-internexin, nestin and synemin. The gene family has at least 65 members and more than 30 diseases are related to mutations of these genes.
