In the wool cortex the KIFs are separated by a matrix that appears under the electron microscope as dense material between individual IFs. The matrix is a complex of nonfibrous protein families and referred to as keratin-associated proteins or KAPs. They fall into two main types, one with a composition characterised by a high content of amino acids glycine and tyrosine (‘high glycine/tyrosine proteins’) and the other of cystine (‘high-sulphur proteins’). In fine wool fibres the cells of the orthocortex and paracortex that were originally distinguished by their differing degrees of access to dyestuffs, display a distinct organisation of the intermediate filaments, the KIFs, and matrix.
