Intermediate filament-associated proteins

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1991 Feb;3(1):75-81. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(91)90168-x.


The term intermediate filament-associated proteins refers to a growing number of proteins whose ability to interact with intermediate filaments has been either directly demonstrated or inferred from indirect evidence. Here we discuss recently published data on the identification and characterization of such proteins, with emphasis on their tissue/cell type-specific expression, subcellular distribution and possible function(s).
