PFAM accession number:PF01500
Interpro abstract (IPR002494):

Keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) are cysteine-rich proteins synthesized during the differentiation of hair matrix cells, and form hair fibres in association with hair keratin intermediate filaments [ (PUBMED:9524245) (PUBMED:2250030) ]. This entry also includes the high-sulfur and high-tyrosine keratins from sheep and goats.

In the hair cortex, hair keratin intermediate filaments are embedded in an interfilamentous matrix, consisting of hair keratin-associated proteins, which are essential for the formation of a rigid and resistant hair shaft through their extensive disulfide bond cross-linking with abundant cysteine residues of hair keratins [ (PUBMED:14962103) ]. The matrix proteins include the high-sulfur and high-glycine-tyrosine keratins.

GO component:keratin filament (GO:0045095)
