24021977 This review covers the background to discovery of the two key lipoxygenases (LOX) involved in epidermal barrier function, 12R-LOX and eLOX3. [review]
23954555 Loss-of-function mutations in the LOX genes ALOX12B and ALOXE3 have been found to represent the second most common cause of autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis. [review]
23621129 We found that the contribution of the ALOX12B gene to the pathogenesis of Autosomal Recessive Congenital Ichthyosis to be as important as that of TGM1 in families of Arab Muslim origin
22622417 Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis patients with NIPAL4 mutations and abnormal ichthyin expression showed increased 12R-LOX and eLOX-3 staining and a colocalization signal of these LOXs that was three times the normal intensity.
22441738 It was shown that 12R-lipoxygenase is involved in MUC5AC expression via ERK- and Sp1-signalling pathways.
21821891 co-overproduction of the two chaperones with 12R-LOX resulted in increased solubility of 12R-LOX and allowed the purification of milligram amounts of active enzyme for structural studies by X-ray diffraction

18347291 clinical & molecular features of 2 cases of self-healing collodion phenotype that developed mild ichthyosiform erythroderma; both patients were compound heterozygous for novel ALOX12B mutations
18086569 presented a novel form of ichthyosis in a patient, termed hepoxilin A(3) synthase-linked ichthyosis (HXALI), whose scales expressed high levels of 12R-LOX, but were deficient of HXA(3) synthase [hepoxilin A3 synthase]
17975119 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17436029 Formation of a ligand for the nuclear receptor PPARalpha may be one possibility by which 12R-LOX and eLOX3 contribute to epidermal differentiation.
17139268 Our data contribute to an enlargement of the spectrum of mutations for the development of efficient molecular genetic tests for analysis of at risk individuals whose carrier status is unknown.
15629692 12R-LOX hydrolase functions in the normal process of skin differentiation, and that the loss of function mutations are the basis of the LOX-dependent form of Non-bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma.
12664578 Isoenzyme is characterized.
11773004 Lipoxygenase-3 (ALOXE3) and 12(R)-lipoxygenase (ALOX12B) are mutated in non-bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma (NCIE) linked to chromosome 17p13.1.
