Nicastrin (NCSTN) mutations are associated with familial acne inversa (AI), and emerging evidences suggest that microRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in various skin diseases. However, whether NCSTN mutations affect miRNA levels and their subsequent signaling pathways in familial AI patients has not been studied. We aimed to elucidate the relationship between NCSTN mutations and familial AI pathogenesis by investigating differential miRNA expression and their related pathways. Combined with miRNA microarray data from familial AI patients, Ncstn keratinocyte-specific-knockout (Ncstn ΔKC) mice and bioinformatics predictions ...

Authors: Froelich MF, Stintzing S, Kumbrink J, Grünewald TGP, Mansmann U, Heinemann V, Kirchner T, Jung A Abstract Skin toxicity (ST) is a frequent adverse effect (AE) in anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-targeted treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) resulting in decreased quality of life and problems in clinical management. We wanted to identify biomarkers predicting ST in this setting and focused on 70 DNA polymorphisms associated with acne, the (immunoglobulin fragment crystallizable region) Fcγ-receptor pathway, and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) applying next-generation-se...
