Abstract

Intermediate filaments (IFs; diameter, about 10 nm) are cytoplasmic cytoskeletal structures found in most vertebrate cells. Their protein subunits comprise a large multi-gene family of related proteins, which make it possible to divide IFs into seven separate classes whose expression is cell-type-dependent. The most important IF classes are cytokeratin (CK… (More)
