Description
Predicted to localize to keratin filament. Is expressed in EVL; ectoderm; endocrine system; integument; and pharynx. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Meesmann corneal dystrophy 2; epidermolytic hyperkeratosis; hereditary mucosal leukokeratosis; ichthyosis (multiple); and palmoplantar keratosis (multiple). Orthologous to several human genes including KRT8 (keratin 8).
