trichohyalin

Major structural protein of inner root sheath cells and medulla of hair follicle, present in small amounts in other specialised epithelia. Trichohyalin is a high molecular weight alpha-helix-rich protein that forms rigid structures as a result of postsynthetic modification by transglutaminases that cross-link the proteins and peptidyl-arginine deiminase that converts arginine to citrulline and modifies structure of the protein. Modified trichohyalin is thought to serve as a keratin intermediate filament-associated matrix protein, like filaggrin. ...
