The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the keratin family. The keratins are intermediate filament proteins responsible for the structural integrity of epithelial cells and are subdivided into cytokeratins and hair keratins. The type I cytokeratins consist of acidic proteins which are arranged in pairs of heterotypic keratin chains. The type I cytokeratin genes are clustered in a region of chromosome 17q12-q21.

KRT23 has several biochemical functions, for example, structural molecule activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by KRT23 itself. We selected most functions KRT23 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with KRT23. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
