  • Single-gene mutations that lead to atopic dermatitis identified June 19, 2017
    Researchers have identified mutations in a gene called CARD11 that lead to atopic dermatitis, or eczema, an allergic skin disease. Scientists discovered the mutations in four unrelated families with severe atopic dermatitis and studied the resulting cell-signaling defects that contribute to allergic disease. Their findings also suggest that some of these defects potentially could be […]
  • Study casts doubt about link between eczema, cardiovascular disease June 16, 2017

  • Skin disease caused by sperm cell transmission of keratin mutation June 16, 2017
    Nagoya University research identified a patient with the whole-body skin disease epidermolytic ichthyosis that had been inherited as a germline mutation from her father with the milder epidermolytic nevus. Analysis of genomic DNA from the patient revealed a mutation in the keratin 10 gene, which was identical to that observed in cells taken from patches […]
