The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the keratin gene family. As a type I hair keratin, it is an acidic protein which heterodimerizes with type II keratins to form hair and nails. The type I hair keratins are clustered in a region of chromosome 17q12-q21 and have the same direction of transcription

KRT31 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 KRT31 itself. We selected most functions KRT31 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with KRT31. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
