Clinical and molecular genetic findings of Crisponi / cold-induced sweating syndrome (CS/CISS) spectrum in patients from Turkey.

Clin Genet 2022 Jun 14. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Medical Genetics, Istanbul Medical Faculty, Istanbul University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Crisponi / cold-induced sweating syndrome (CS/CISS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by episodic hyperthermia, arthrogryposis, impaired feeding ability, and respiratory distress. The classic CS/CISS is mainly associated with CRLF1 and, rarely, CLCF1. PERCHING syndrome, previously known as CS/CISS type-3 associated with biallelic pathogenic variants in KLHL7, is notable for its few overlapping manifestations. Read More

Effect of mutations on the hydrophobic interactions of the hierarchical molecular structure and mechanical properties of epithelial keratin 1/10.

Int J Biol Macromol 2022 Jul 25;212:442-450. Epub 2022 May 25.

Institute of Applied Mechanics, National Taiwan University, Taipei City, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Human epithelial keratin is an intermediate filament protein that serves as a backbone to maintain the stability of the cell nucleus and mechanical stability of the whole cells. The present study focused on two point mutations, F231L and S233L, of the 1B domain of keratin K 1/10 related to the rare genetic skin disease palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK). We used molecular dynamics simulation to study the effects of the mutations on various hierarchical structures, including heterodimers, tetramers, and octamers of the K1/10 1B domain at the atomic scale.

Nonsense mutations in KRT1 caused recessive epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma with knuckle pads.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2022 May 1. Epub 2022 May 1.

Dermatology Hospital, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Background: Epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma (EPPK) is characterized by diffuse hyperkeratosis affecting palms and soles with suprabasal epidermolysis or vacuolar degeneration histopathologically. The disorder is caused by heterozygous mutations in KRT9 or KRT1.

Dermoscopic furrow ink test of the palmar lesion in loricrin keratoderma.

J Dermatol 2022 Apr 25. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Department of Dermatology, Kurume University School of Medicine, Kurume, Japan.

Palmoplantar keratodermas (PPK) comprise a heterogeneous group of keratinization disorders that gradually progress during childhood, resulting in difficulties to establish a diagnosis and to identify a candidate gene for sequencing. Dermoscopic examination with staining of palmoplantar skin using a whiteboard marker, so-called "furrow ink test", could be a useful tool for differentiation between furrow and ridge in understanding the morphological characteristics of PPK. One of the striking features in autosomal dominant loricrin keratoderma (LK) is diffuse PPK with honeycomb pattern. Read More

Treatment of Painful Palmoplantar Keratoderma Related to Pachyonychia Congenita Using EGFR Inhibitors.

Biomedicines 2022 Apr 3;10(4). Epub 2022 Apr 3.

IMAGINE Institute, Inserm U1163, Université de Paris, 75015 Paris, France.

Pachyonychia congenita (PC) is a genodermatosis associated with severe painful palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK) and thickened dystrophic nails caused by autosomal dominant-negative mutations in five genes encoding keratins 6A-B-C, 16, and 17. The mechanical, surgical, or medical options for painful PC are inefficient. Given ErbB/Her family members' role in epidermal homeostasis, this study sought to investigate the possibility of treating PC patients with PPK by blocking signaling either with EGFR (Her1) inhibitor erlotinib or lapatinib, a dual EGFR(Her1)/Her2.

Experimental and Clinical Research Center, Max Delbrueck Center for Molecular Medicine and Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Corporate Member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Berlin Institute of Health, Berlin, Germany

Background: The ANCA autoantigens proteinase 3 (PR3) and myeloperoxidase (MPO) are exclusively expressed by neutrophils and monocytes. ANCA-mediated activation of these cells is the key driver of the vascular injury process in ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV), and neutrophil serine proteases (NSPs) are disease mediators. Cathepsin C (CatC) from zymogens activates the proteolytic function of NSPs, including PR3. Read More
