    Human Hairless Protein Roles in Skin/Hair and Emerging Connections to Brain and Other Cancers.
    J Cell Biochem 2017 May 23. Epub 2017 May 23.
    Department of Basic Medical Sciences, College of Medicine-Phoenix, University of Arizona. Phoenix, AZ 85004-2153.
    The mammalian hairless protein (HR) is a 130 kDa nuclear transcription factor that is essential for proper skin and hair follicle function. Previous studies have focused on the role of HR in skin maintenance and hair cycling. However, hairless gene (HR) is also expressed in brain and other tissues, where its role remains poorly understood. Read More

    Role of S-Palmitoylation by ZDHHC13 in Mitochondrial function and Metabolism in Liver.
    Sci Rep 2017 May 19;7(1):2182. Epub 2017 May 19.
    Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan.
    Palmitoyltransferase (PAT) catalyses protein S-palmitoylation which adds 16-carbon palmitate to specific cysteines and contributes to various biological functions. We previously reported that in mice, deficiency of Zdhhc13, a member of the PAT family, causes severe phenotypes including amyloidosis, alopecia, and osteoporosis. Here, we show that Zdhhc13 deficiency results in abnormal liver function, lipid abnormalities, and hypermetabolism. Read More

    The Role of Micronutrients in Alopecia Areata: A Review.
    Am J Clin Dermatol 2017 May 15. Epub 2017 May 15.
    Department of Dermatology, Warren Alpert Medical School, Brown University, 339 Eddy Street, Providence, RI, 02903, USA.
    Alopecia areata (AA) is a common, non-scarring form of hair loss caused by immune-mediated attack of the hair follicle. As with other immune-mediated diseases, a complex interplay between environment and genetics is thought to lead to the development of AA. Deficiency of micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals may represent a modifiable risk factor associated with development of AA. Read More

    Adipocyte-myofibroblast transition as a possible pathophysiological step in androgenetic alopecia.
    Exp Dermatol 2017 May 8. Epub 2017 May 8.
    Touchstone Diabetes Center, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, 75390-8549, USA.
    Appearance of local fibrotic structures around and beneath hair follicles during their involution is a known hallmark of androgenetic alopecia (AGA). We hypothesize that this fibrosis can be connected with recently uncovered adipocyte-myofibroblast transition (AMT) involving the dermal adipocytes. This reflects that AMT is at least partially androgen-dependent, and we propose that AMT may play a role in AGA. Read More
