The keratin filament network is an important part of the cytoskeleton. It is involved in the regulation of shape and viscoelasticity of epithelial cells. The morphology of keratin networks depends on post-translational modifications of keratin monomers. In-vitro studies indicated that network characteristics, such as filament crosslink density, determines the biophysical properties of the filament network. This report presents a quantitative method for the morphological analysis of keratin… CONTINUE READING
