|Function||In the hair cortex, hair keratin intermediate filaments are embedded in an interfilamentous matrix, consisting of hair keratin-associated proteins (KRTAP), which are essential for the formation of a rigid and resistant hair shaft through their extensive disulfide bond cross-linking with abundant cysteine residues of hair keratins. The matrix proteins include the high- sulfur and high-glycine-tyrosine keratins.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the middle/upper portions of the hair cortex, in the region termed the keratogenous zone|

This protein is a member of the keratin-associated protein(KAP) family. The KAP proteins form a matrix of keratinintermediate filaments which contribute to the structure of hairfibers. KAP family members appear to have unique, family-specificamino- and carboxyl-terminal regions and are subdivided into threemulti-gene families according to amino acid composition: the highsulfur, the ultrahigh sulfur, and the high tyrosine/glycine KAPs.This protein is a member of the high sulfur KAP family and the geneis localized to a cluster of KAPs at 17q12-q21.
