26807515 MC1R status is associated with BRAF(V600E), BRAF(V600K), and NRAS mutations in cutaneous melanomas
26657157 Functional characterization of MC1R-TUBB3 intergenic splice variants of the human melanocortin 1 receptor has been undertaken in response to ultraviolet irradiation.
26628245 none of the three variants of the MC1R gene and related haplotypes be associated with sporadic form of Parkinson disease in Chinese Han population from Mainland China.
26536271 Study found that HBD2 bound tightly to Mc1r with an affinity similar to that of HBD3
26482799 The pattern of sequence diversity here does not support a model of strong selective constraint on MC1R in Northern Island Melanesia.
26381319 Even after taking into account potential confounding effects of MC1R genotype and various lifestyle factors that close relatives may share, family history of skin cancer remained strongly associated with early-onset basal cell carcinoma
26197705 Six MC1R mutations segregated with the phenotype in seven families, including a p.Val174del in-frame deletion and a p.Tyr298* nonsense mutation, that were analyzed for function in heterologous HEK293 cells.
26168232 ASIP diminishes agonist-independent MC1R basal signaling whereas HBD3 is a neutral MC1R antagonist that blocks activation by melanocortins.
26103950 Woman who carried a deleterious CDKN2A mutation and was also homozygous for the MC1R variant allele R160W developed 20 cutaneous melanomas in her lifetime.
26103569 a role of MC1R variants in non-melanoma skin cancer development and suggested an effect modification by red hair colour phenotype.
