The following KRT16 gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the KRT16 gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the
keratin gene family. The keratins are intermediate filament
proteins responsible for the structural integrity of epithelial
cells and are subdivided into cytokeratins and hair keratins. Most
of the type I cytokeratins consist of acidic proteins which are
arranged in pairs of heterotypic keratin chains and are clustered
in a region of chromosome 17q12-q21. This keratin has been
coexpressed with keratin 14 in a number of epithelial tissues,
including esophagus, tongue, and hair follicles. Mutations in this
gene are associated with type 1 pachyonychia congenita,
non-epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma and unilateral
palmoplantar verrucous nevus. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008].
