...Sachiko Fujiwara; Shinji Deguchi; Thomas M. Magin ABSTRACT Keratin intermediate filament (IF) proteins constitute the major cytoskeletal components in epithelial cells. Missense mutations in keratin 5 (K5; also known as KRT5) or keratin 14 (K14; also known as KRT14), highly expressed in the basal...

...Lee Wallace; Leiann Roberts-Thompson; Julia Reichelt Keratins K1 and K10 are the most abundant proteins in the upper epidermis where they polymerize to form intermediate filaments (IFs). In addition to their well-established function in providing epidermal stability, K1/K10 (i.e. the dimer between...

...Pavel Strnad; Valentyn Usachov; Cedric Debes; Frauke Gräter; David A. D. Parry; M. Bishr Omary Keratins (Ks) consist of central α-helical rod domains that are flanked by non-α-helical head and tail domains. The cellular abundance of keratins, coupled with their selective cell expression patterns...

... and the chaperone Hsp70.1 attached to the apical cytoskeleton. Pull-down experiments using purified and recombinant proteins showed a complex of Hsp70 and atypical PKC on filamentous keratins. Transgenic animals overexpressing keratin 8 displayed delocalization of Hsp70 and atypical PKC. Two different keratin-null...

... is the K5/K14 keratin intermediate filament network. To investigate the part played by keratins in stress resilience, keratinocyte cell lines were subjected to mechanical stress. Repeated stretch and relaxation cycles over increasing time produced reproducible changes in the configuration of the keratin...

...Bihui Zhong; Qin Zhou; Diana M. Toivola; Guo-Zhong Tao; Evelyn Z. Resurreccion; M. Bishr Omary Keratin polypeptides 8 and 18 (K8/K18) are the major intermediate filament proteins of pancreatic acinar cells and hepatocytes. Pancreatic keratin function is unknown, whereas hepatocyte keratins protect...

...Mirjana Liovic; Mette M. Mogensen; Alan R. Prescott; E. Birgitte Lane Keratin intermediate filament networks were observed in living cultured epithelial cells using the incorporation of fluorescently tagged keratin from a transfected enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) construct. In steady...

... keratins. There is a need for functional cell assays in which the impact of stress on intermediate filaments can be induced and analyzed. Using osmotic shock, we have induced cytoskeleton changes that suggest protective functions for actin and intermediate filament systems. Induction of the resulting...

...Julia Reichelt; Thomas M. Magin In the past, keratins have been established as structural proteins. Indeed,mutations in keratin 10 (K10) and other epidermal keratins lead to severe skin fragility syndromes. Here, we present adult K10 -/- mice, which reveal a novel connection between the regulation...

...Michael Hesse; Thomas M. Magin; Klaus Weber We screened the draft sequence of the human genome for genes that encode intermediate filament (IF) proteins in general, and keratins in particular. The draft covers nearly all previously established IF genes including the recent cDNA and gene additions...
