19601998 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18844868 results give evidence that heterogeneous phenotypes of LK may be the result of genetic heterogeneity of loricrin mutations, and demonstrate that nuclear accumulation of mutant loricrin is due to the nuclear targeting sequences in the mutant C-terminus.
