A novel frameshift truncation mutation in the V2 tail domain of KRT1 causes mild ichthyosis hystrix of Curth-Macklin.


:Ichthyosis hystrix, Curth-Macklin type (IHCM) is an extremely rare autosomal dominant dermatosis caused by mutations in the keratin genes, KRT1 or KRT10, which often manifests as extensive, dark, spiky or verrucous plaques and severe palmoplantar keratoderma. We report a novel frameshift truncation mutation, c.1596_1597insAT (p.Gly533Metfs*82) in exon 7 (V2 tail domain) of KRT1, which, by replacing the glycine-serine-rich tail of KRT1 with a series of 75 alanine-rich amino acids, produces a mild IHCM phenotype. The patient with the mutation presented with localized ichthyosis and progressive hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles with no history of blistering.

  • The role of cyclooxygenase-2 and prostaglandin E2 in the pathogenesis of cutaneous lichen planus.

    abstract:BACKGROUND:Lichen planus (LP) is an inflammatory disease of the skin and mucous membranes. Autoimmunity has been suggested as a possible cause of this disease. The cyclooxygenase enzymes (COX-1, COX-2) are the key enzymes in the conversion of arachidonic acid into prostaglandins. Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), a key product ...
