Research Backgrounds


Together with KRT19, helps to link the contractile apparatus to dystrophin at the costameres of striated muscle.


Phosphorylation on serine residues is enhanced during EGF stimulation and mitosis. Ser-74 phosphorylation plays an important role in keratin filament reorganization.

O-glycosylated. O-GlcNAcylation at multiple sites increases solubility, and decreases stability by inducing proteasomal degradation.

O-glycosylated (O-GlcNAcylated), in a cell cycle-dependent manner.

Tissue Specificity:

Observed in muscle fibers accumulating in the costameres of myoplasm at the sarcolemma membrane in structures that contain dystrophin and spectrin. Expressed in gingival mucosa and hard palate of the oral cavity.

Subunit Structure:

Heterotetramer of two type I and two type II keratins. KRT8 associates with KRT18. Associates with KRT20. Interacts with PNN. When associated with KRT19, interacts with DMD. Interacts with TCHP. Interacts with APEX1. Interacts with GPER1. Interacts with EPPK1 (By similarity).

(Microbial infection) Interacts with hepatitis C virus/HCV core protein.


Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
