|Official Full Name||keratin 5|
|Background||The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the keratin gene family. The type II cytokeratins consist of basic or neutral proteins which are arranged in pairs of heterotypic keratin chains coexpressed during differentiation of simple and stratified epithelial tissues. This type II cytokeratin is specifically expressed in the basal layer of the epidermis with family member KRT14. Mutations in these genes have been associated with a complex of diseases termed epidermolysis bullosa simplex. The type II cytokeratins are clustered in a region of chromosome 12q12-q13.

KRT5 has several biochemical functions, for example, protein binding, scaffold protein binding, structural constituent of cytoskeleton. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by KRT5 itself.
