Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
Expressed in cultured epidermal, bronchial and mesothelial cells but absent in colon, ectocervix and liver. Observed throughout the glandular cells in the junction between stomach and esophagus but is absent in the esophagus.
Arg-20 is dimethylated, probably to asymmetric dimethylarginine.
Cytokeratins comprise a diverse group of intermediate filament proteins (IFPs) that are expressed as pairs in both keratinized and non-keratinized epithelial tissue, where they constitute up to 85% of mature keratinocytes in the vertebrate epidermis. Cytokeratins play a critical role in differentiation and tissue specialization and function to maintain the overall structural integrity of epithelial cells. The a-helical coiled-coil dimers associate laterally end-to-end to form 10 nm diameter filaments. Cytokeratins are useful markers of tissue differentiation and, in addition, they aid in the characterization of malignant tumors. Cytokeratin 7 (also known as sarcolectin) agglutinates normal and transformed cells with a high affinity for simple sugars. Cytokeratin 7 also inhibits the synthesis of interferon-dependent secondary proteins thus reversing the antiviral effect of interferon induction and restoring cells to their status ad primum. In normal and transformed cells, Cytokeratin 7 localizes to the membrane.
