Association between IL16 gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to alopecia areata in the Korean population
Tue, 10 Dec 2013 05:00:00 +0100 | International Journal of Dermatology
ConclusionsThe present study found significant differences pertaining to two SNPs of the IL16 gene between, respectively, AA patients and controls (rs17875491) and AA patients with and without a family history of AA (rs11073001). Thus, IL16 polymorphisms may play a role in the pathophysiology of AA or in the expression of AA phenotypes. Further studies are required to elucidate the role of IL‐16 in the pathogenesis and clinical manifestation of AA. (Source: International Journal of Dermatology)
Biochemistry of Hair Loss
Sat, 07 Dec 2013 19:48:00 +0100 | Neuromics
In this study, Researchers use Tbx18Cre knockin mouse line to ablate the Wnt-responsive transcription factor β-catenin specifically in at E14.5 during the first wave of guard hair follicle formation. In the absence of β-catenin, canonical Wnt signaling is effectively abolished in cell clusters of precursors for the hair follicle dermal papilla (DP). Sox2+ dermal condensates initiate normally; however by E16.5 guard hair follicle numbers are strongly reduced and by E18.5 most whiskers and guard hair follicles are absent, suggesting that active Wnt signaling in dermal condensates is important for hair follicle formation to proceed after induction. To explore the molecular mechanisms by which Wnt signaling in dermal condensates regulates hair follicle formation, we analyze genome-wide...
Morphological changes of the hair roots in alopecia areata: A scanning electron microscopic study
Wed, 04 Dec 2013 05:00:00 +0100 | The Journal of Dermatology
This study identified four patterns of hair morphology specific to alopecia areata: (I) long tapering structure with no accumulation of scales; (II) club‐shaped hair root with fine scales; (III) proximal accumulation of scales; and (IV) sharp tapering of the proximal end of hair. On the basis of these results, we can distinguish alopecia areata by scanning electron microscopic observation of the proximal end of the hair shafts. (Source: The Journal of Dermatology)
