Keratin 23 (histone deacetylase inducible), also known as KRT23, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: KRT23 keratin 23 (histone deacetylase inducible)| url =| accessdate = ]

section_title =
summary_text = The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the keratin family. The keratins are intermediate filament proteins responsible for the structural integrity of epithelial cells and are subdivided into cytokeratins and hair keratins. The type I cytokeratins consist of acidic proteins which are arranged in pairs of heterotypic keratin chains. The type I cytokeratin genes are clustered in a region of chromosome 17q12-q21.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: KRT23 keratin 23 (histone deacetylase inducible)| url =| accessdate = ]
