The role of keratin proteins and their genes in the growth, structure and properties of hair.
The importance of wool in the textile industry has inspired extensive research into its structure since the 1960s. Over the past several years, however, the hair follicle has increased inExpand

Ten years ago, Hardy (1992) wrote a timely review on the major features of hair follicle development and hair growth which she referred to as a secret life. Many of these secrets are now beingExpand

The microfibril, a macromolecular particle approximately 60 in diameter and probably several microns in length, is now regarded as the fibrous unit of stiucture of a-keratins. These microfibrils canExpand

Avian keratin genes. I. A molecular analysis of the structure and expression of a group of feather keratin genes.
The nucleotide sequence of the four complete chicken feather keratin genes A to D contained in the previously isolated recombinant lambda CFK1 has been determined. All four genes have a very similarExpand

Feather Keratin: Composition, Structure and Biogenesis
The proteins of feather become soluble when they are treated with a combination of a disulphide bond-breaking reagent and a protein denaturant. The disulphide bonds of feather keratin have beenExpand

Abstract:  Wool fibres are hairs and the term ‘wool’ is usually restricted to describe the fine curly hairs that constitute the fleece produced by sheep. In a broader sense, it can be used toExpand

Avian keratin genes. II. Chromosomal arrangement and close linkage of three gene families.
We describe the isolation and characterization of a set of overlapping cosmid clones that contain chicken keratin genes. The 100 kb (1 kb = 10(3) base-pairs) of DNA represented in these clonesExpand

The enzymic derivation of citrulline residues from arginine residues in situ during the biosynthesis of hair proteins that are cross-linked by isopeptide bonds.
An enzymic activity present in hair follicles is described that can convert arginine residues to citrulline residues in proteins in situ. The Ca2+ dependent enzyme activity has been detected in hairExpand
