Intermediate Filament Proteins definition: Filaments 7-11 nm in diameter found in the cytoplasm of all cells. Many specific proteins belong to this group, e.g., desmin, vimentin, prekeratin, decamin, skeletin, neurofilin, neurofilament protein, and glial fibrillary acid protein.
Intermediate filament protein definition: Protein that primarily constitutes an intermediate filament which provide strength or anchorage of other cellular structures. Examples: keratin, vimentin, desmin.

Intermediate Filament Protein definition: Encoded by Intermediate Filament Genes, diverse Intermediate Filament Proteins (including keratin filaments, neurofilaments, desmin, and vimentin) form polymeric structural cytoplasmic filaments, intermediate in diameter (8-10 nanometer) between actin microfilaments and microtubules, that comprise part of the cytoskeleton of most eukaryotic cells.
