Family

Keratin, high-sulphur matrix protein (IPR007659)

Short name: Keratin_matx

Family relationships

None.

Description

This is a family of keratins, high-sulphur matrix proteins. The keratin products of mammalian epidermal derivatives such as wool and hair consist of microfibrils embedded in a rigid matrix of other proteins. The matrix proteins include the high-sulphur and high-tyrosine keratins, having molecular weights of 6-20 kDa, whereas microfibrils contain the larger, low-sulphur keratins (40-56 kDa) [PMID: 4678578].
