25251037 This study further extends the body of evidence that mutations in the DSG4 gene result in both hypotrichosis and monilethrix-like scalp hair.
22189787 Genetic analysis of striate palmoplantar keratoderma and hypotrichosis identified their responsible genes as desmogleins 1 and 4, respectively.
19683850 show that HOXC13, LEF1 and FOXN1 repress DSG4 transcription and provide in vitro and in vivo evidence correlating the Notch pathway with the activation and/or maintenance of DSG4 expression in the hair follicle.
17392831 identification of a single nucleotide deletion within exon 3 of DSG4, designated 87delG in a Pakistani family with localized autosomal recessive hypotrichosis; this results in a frameshift and premature termination codon 162 bp downstream of the deletion
17294735 Epitopes of Dsg4 may play a role in the pathogenesis of pemphigus vulgaris .
16533311 The DSG4 protein is expressed in the more highly differentiated layers of the epidermis.
16382669 A large, intragenic deletion in the desmoglein 4 gene (DSG4) is the underlying mutation in an autosomal recessive form of hypotrichosis.
15545999 DSG4 is pathogenic in pemphigus and staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome.
12705872 The essential role of desmoglein 4 in skin was established by identifying mutations in families with inherited hypotrichosis, as well as in the lanceolate hair mouse. We also show that DSG4 is an autoantigen in pemphigus vulgaris.
12648213 the human desmoglein 4 gene (DSG4) demonstrates that it is composed of 16 exons spanning approximately 37 kb of 18q12 and is situated between DSG1 and DSG3.
