The Histology of Keratin Fibers

  • J. A. Swift
Chapter

Abstract

Keratin (Greek, horn + in) is the generic term applied to the resilient structures such as hair, horn, nail, feather, and skin which comprise the integument and appendages of the higher vertebrates and whose prime function is to protect the animals from their environment. They are composed mainly of protein and are characterized by their high cystine content(1) and birefringence(2) and by the fact that they yield an α-type X-ray diffraction pattern which reverts to a β type on stretching.(3)
