Keratin 31, also known as KRT31, is a human gene.

section_title =
summary_text = The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the keratin gene family. As a type I hair keratin, it is an acidic protein which heterodimerizes with type II keratins to form hair and nails. The type I hair keratins are clustered in a region of chromosome 17q12-q21 and have the same direction of transcription.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: KRT31 keratin 31| url =| accessdate = ]
