The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the keratin gene family. As a type II hair keratin it is a basic protein which heterodimerizes with type I keratins to form hair and nails. The type II hair keratins are clustered in a region of chromosome 12q13 and are grouped into two distinct subfamilies based on structure similarity. One subfamily consisting of KRTHB1 KRTHB3 and KRTHB6 is highly related. The other less-related subfamily includes KRTHB2 KRTHB4 and KRTHB5. All hair keratins are expressed in the hair follicle; this hair keratin as well as KRTHB1 and KRTHB3 is found primarily in the hair cortex. Mutations in this gene and KRTHB1 have been observed in patients with a rare dominant hair disease monilethrix. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
