K10 a type I cytoskeletal keratin. The keratins are intermediate filament proteins responsible for the structural integrity of epithelial cells and are subdivided into cytokeratins and hair keratins. There are two types of cytoskeletal and microfibrillar keratin: type I (acidic; 40-55 kDa) [K9 to K20] and type II (neutral to basic; 56-70 kDa) [K1 to K8]. Both a basic and an acidic keratin are required for filament assembly.



Score>80(red) has high confidence and is suggested to be used for WB detection. *The prediction model is mainly based on the alignment of immunogen sequences, the results are for reference only, not as the basis of quality assurance.

Research Backgrounds


Plays a role in the establishment of the epidermal barrier on plantar skin.

(Microbial infection) Acts as a mediator of S.aureus adherence to desquamated nasal epithelial cells via clfB, and hence may play a role in nasal colonization.

(Microbial infection) Binds S.pneumoniae PsrP, mediating adherence of the bacteria to lung cell lines. Reduction of levels of KRT10 keratin decrease adherence, overexpression increases adherence. Neither protein has to be glycosylated for the interaction to occur.

Subcellular Location:

Secreted>Extracellular space. Cell surface.
Note: Localized on the surface of desquamated nasal epithelial cells (PubMed:12427098). Localized on the surface of lung cell lines (PubMed:19627498).

Tissue Specificity:

Seen in all suprabasal cell layers including stratum corneum. Expressed on the surface of lung cell lines.

Subunit Structure:

Heterotetramer of two type I and two type II keratins. Heterodimer with KRT1. Two heterodimers of KRT1 and KRT10 form a heterotetramer. The KRT10 subunit in the heterotetramer is probably disulfide-linked (Probable).

(Microbial infection) Interacts (via C-terminal tail domain) with the S.aureus clumping factor, clfB; this interaction probably mediates S.aureus attachment to the keratinized squamous epithelial cells from the nasal cavity.

(Microbial infection) Interacts (via the C-terminal tail domain) with S.pneumoniae serine-rich repeat protein PsrP; this interaction probably mediates S.pneumoniae adherence to lung tissue and subsequent pathogenesis. Neither protein has to be glycosylated for the interaction to occur.


Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
