24801514 Combined with an effective delivery vehicle this siRNA approach represents a viable treatment option for prevention of the MECD pathology observed in K12-Leu132Pro heterozygous individuals.
24099278 We identified a novel missense mutation of the KRT12 gene in Meesmann corneal dystrophy. The in vivo confocal microscopy examinations revealed previously unreported depth-dependent ultrastructural changes in the living cornea.
23569037 Exon sequencing of KRT3 and KRT12 in six affected and eight unaffected individuals did not detect any mutations or nucleotide sequence variants in Meesmann epithelial corneal dystrophy.
23233254 The lead siRNA, with an IC(50) of thirty picomolar, showed no keratin off-target effects or activation of TLR3 in the concentration ranges tested.
23222558 The Leu132Pro missense mutation is within the helix-initiation motif of the keratin and is predicted to result in a significant structural change of the K12 protein.
20577595 Novel missense mutation within the highly conserved helix-initiation motif of KRT12 causing Meesmann's corneal dystrophy in a German family.
18661274 The novel L433R mutation of the KRT12 gene found in two members of this Japanese family caused Meesmann corneal dystrophy (MECD).
18245975 This is the second family recently diagnosed with Meesmann dystrophy in Denmark. The family represents its own distinct genotype, independent of previously reported ones. All patients with microcysts were asymptomatic.
17653038 Mutation associated with symptomatic phenotype of Meesmann's corneal dystrophy. Results in substitution of proline for arginine in helix termination motif that may disrupt normal helix, leading to dramatic structural change of keratin 12 protein.
16352477 Mutation in the KRT12 gene is associated with Meesmann corneal dystrophy
16227835 A novel missense mutation (Y429C) in KRT12 lead to MCD in 2 unrelated Taiwanese families.
12543196 Heterozygous Ala137Pro mutation in keratin 12 gene found in Japanese with Meesmann's corneal dystrophy.
