    Abstract : Positional cloning is a method to identify genes from their position in the genome without prior knowledge about function. We used this approach to investigate the basis for three distinct genetic disorders; Obesity, Ichthyosis Prematurity Syndrome and Meniere's disease. READ MORE

  3. 3. Darier disease : more than skin deep

    Author : Philip Curman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Darier disease (DD) is a severe, inherited dermatological disorder with a characteristic clinical and histopathological appearance. It is caused by mutations in the ATP2A2 gene, encoding a Ca2+ pump in the endoplasmic reticulum, Sarco/Endoplasmic Reticulum Ca2+-ATPase 2 (SERCA2), which has been found to be an essential regulator of cellular Ca2+ homeostasis.

    Abstract : Hereditary ichthyosis is a collective name for many dry and scaly skin disorders ranging in frequency from common to very rare. The main groups are autosomal recessive lamellar ichthyosis, autosomal dominant epidermolytic hyperkeratosis and ichthyosis vulgaris, and x-linked recessive ichthyosis. READ MORE

  5. 5. The limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis in Alzheimer's disease

    Author : Birgitta Näsman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Alzheimer’s disease; multi-infarct dementia; hippocampus; temporal lobe; adrenal androgens; adrenocorticotropin; corticotropinreleasing hormone; cortisol; skin blanching;

    Abstract : Dysfunction of the limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (LHPA) axis is a common finding in advanced dementia. In this study, the function of the LHPA axis at different levels was investigated in patients with dementia and in healthy elderly.A subtle disturbance in the feedback regulation of the LHPA axis was found in patients with early (i.e. READ MORE
