MICB Allele Genotyping on Microarrays by Improving the Specificity of Extension Primers

Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I chain-related gene B (MICB) encodes a ligand for activating NKG2D that expressed in natural killer cells, γδ T cells, and αβ CD8+ T cells, which is associated with autoimmune diseases, cancer, and infectious diseases. Here, we have established a system for genotyping MICB alleles using allele-specific primer extension (ASPE) on...

Multiplex Genotyping of Cytokine Gene SNPs Using Fluorescence Bead Array

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of genes that affect cytokine production and function are known to influence the susceptibility and progression of immune-related conditions such as infection, autoimmune diseases, transplantation, and cancer. We established a multiplex genotyping method to analyze the SNPs of cytokine genes by combining the multiplex PCR and bead array...

Gene expression profile of the skin in the 'hairpoor' (HrHp) mice by microarray analysis

Background The transcriptional cofactor, Hairless (HR), acts as one of the key regulators of hair follicle cycling; the loss of function mutations is the cause of the expression of the hairless phenotype in humans and mice. Recently, we reported a new Hr mutant mouse called 'Hairpoor' (HrHp). These mutants harbor a gain of the function mutation, T403A, in the Hr gene. This...

Overexpression of Hr links excessive induction of Wnt signaling to Marie Unna hereditary hypotrichosis

Marie Unna hereditary hypotrichosis (MUHH) is a rare autosomal dominant hair disorder. Through the study of a mouse model, we identified a mutation in the 5′-untranslated region of the hairless (HR) gene in patients with MUHH in a Caucasian family. The corresponding mutation, named ‘hairpoor’, was found in mutant mice that were generated through N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea mutagenesis...
