In this review article the data about synthesis and gene regulation of keratin by hair follicles have been summarized. It has been shown that both differentiation of hair follicle matrix cells and normal growth of hair require the coordinated activities of the genes encoding structural proteins. The keratin genes are clustered in families and are usually 5–10 kb in the genome. The separate clusters of two keratin IF gene families and five KAP gene families have been discovered and some of them have been mapped. The close relation between these clusters suggests that the «global» regulatory domains might govern their expression.
