*Please note that Keratin (CAS 68238-35-7) Market Research Report 2018 is a half ready publication and contents are subject to change. It only requires updating with the help of new data that are constantly retrieved from Publisher’s databases and other sources. This updating process takes 3-5 business days after order is placed. Thus, our clients always obtain a revised and updated version of each report. Please also note that we do not charge for such an updating procedure. BAC Reports has information for more than 25,000 different chemicals available but it is impossible to have all reports updated immediately. That is why it takes 3-5 days to update a report after an order is received.
Product Name:Keratin
Structure:Keratin (CAS 68238-35-7)

Keratin is a tough, insoluble, sulphur-containing fibrous protein that is the main structural constituent of hard epidermal tissues, such as horn, hair, feathers, nails, claws, hoofs, and the like. By decomposition with sulphuric acid it yields leucine and tyrosine plus various other acid-stable amino acids. The amino acid composition of keratin varies, but it usually has a high percentage of cystine, which stabilizes and insolubilizes the protein by forming intrachain linkages. A softer form of keratin is present in the epidermis and whalebone.

Keratin is produced by keratinocytes, the predominant cells in the epidermis. These cells never stop their action, slowly pushing their way upwards, eventually dying and forming a protective layer of cells. Keratin is born from this stocking of dead hardening cells – keratinization.

Humans have at least 54 functional keratin genes, which are divided into type I and type II keratins. Most of the type I keratin genes, designated KRT9 through KRT20, are situated in a cluster on chromosome 17. The type II keratin genes, designated KRT1 through KRT8, are located in another cluster on chromosome 12.

Different combinations of keratin proteins are found in different tissues. In each tissue, a type I keratin pairs with a type II keratin to form a structure called a heterodimer. Heterodimers interact with one another to form strong, flexible fibers called keratin intermediate filaments. These filaments assemble into a dense network, which forms the structural framework of cells.

Keratins are widely known for providing strength and resilience to cells that form the hair, skin, and nails. These proteins allow tissues to resist damage from friction and minor trauma, such as rubbing and scratching.

Other critical cell functions of keratins include cell movement, regulation of cell size, cell growth and division, wound healing, and transport of materials within cells.

Besides, keratin is the buzzword of the hair care industry today, from intensive repair treatments and specialized straightening procedures, to daily wash and care.
