25801600 Polymorphisms of ASIP were found to be associated with skin, hair, and eye color in a phenotypically diverse Brazilian population. More research is needed to determine its usefulness in forensic science.
25705849 ASIP gene mutation is involved in the development of facial pigmented lesions.
25382380 Data show that ASIP TG/TG diplotype, which is known to be associated with melanoma risk, was linked to a 5-fold increase in hazard of death from melanoma.
22628150 An increased risk of melanoma (odds ratio [OR] 1.27, 95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.03-1.57) in carriers of the rs4911414 variant, located 120 kb upstream of ASIP.
22447455 By using a population-based material of high-risk melanoma cases, we demonstrate a significant effect of both MC1R red hair color (RHC) variants and an ASIP haplotype, but could not replicate an association with postulated risk SNPs of TYR and TYRP1.
21221757 Findings suggest that ASIP locus is associated with a number of non-melanoma skin cancers.
20831872 Further analysis of binding and functional data suggests that the ASIP C-terminal loop (a six-amino-acid segment closed by the final disulfide bond) is essential for high-affinity MC1R binding and inverse agonism.
