    Abstract : Epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS) and epidermolytic ichthyosis (EI) are rare skin fragility diseases characterized by intra-epidermal blistering due to autosomal dominant-negative mutations in basal (KRT5 or KRT14) and suprabasal (KRT1 or KRT10) keratin genes,  respectively. Despite vast knowledge in the disease pathogenesis, the pathomechanisms are not fully understood, and no effective remedies exist. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic and Molecular Studies of Two Hereditary Skin Disorders

    Author : Johanna Dahlqvist; Niklas Dahl; Anders Vahlquist; Juha Kere; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Monogenic disorder; autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis; KLICK syndrome; Ichthyin; POMP; proteasome; epidermal differentiation; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Clinical Genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Monogenic disorders, i.e., disorders caused by mutations in a single gene, are rare and clinically heterogeneous conditions. Identification of the genetic cause of monogenic traits can bring new insights into molecular pathways and disease mechanisms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptors and Biological Effects of HER-directed Molecules on Skin Epithelialization

    Author : Sofi Forsberg; Ola Rollman; Arne Östman; Anders Vahlquist; Eva Hagforsen; Gunnar Kratz; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dermatology and venerology; Dermatologi och venerologi;

    Abstract : Human skin forms a biologically active barrier and maintains vital protective functions through continuous regeneration of cells within its outermost layer, the epidermis. In healthy skin, renewal of epithelial cells is a tightly regulated process in which the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR or HER1) and its various ligands are involved. READ MORE

    Abstract : Autosomal dominant epidermolytic ichthyosis (EI) is a rare disease characterized by intra-epidermal blistering due to mutations in either of two keratin genes, KRT1 and KRT10, expressed by suprabasal keratinocytes. Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) is a non-blistering, hyperkeratotic disease caused by mutations in one of the following genes: ABCA12, ALOX12B, ALOXE3, TGM1, CYP4F22, NIPAL4 and SLC27A4, which are all essential for skin barrier homeostasis.
