- Intermediate filament protein (IPR001664)
- Synemin (IPR030634)
Synemin, also known as desmuslin, is a type-VI intermediate filament (IF) protein which plays an important cytoskeletal role within the muscle cell cytoskeleton [PMID: 11353857]. It associates with the major IF proteins, desmin and/or vimentin, within muscle cells and forms heteropolymeric IFs [PMID: 18028034].
