periplakin Component of the cornified envelope of keratinocytes. May link the cornified envelope to desmosomes and intermediate filaments. May act as a localization signal in PKB/AKT-mediated signaling. Belongs to the plakin or cytolinker family. Expressed in stratified squamous epithelia and in some other epithelia. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
