Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) (also called "reticulate acropigmentation of Dohi") is a pigmentary genodermatosis of autosomal dominant inheritance. We have clarified for the first time four pathological mutations of the double-stranded RNA-specific adenosine deaminase gene (ADAR1 or DSRAD) in four DSH pedigrees. In this paper, we report 16 novel mutations containing six missense substitutions (p.V906F, p.K1003R, p.G1007R, p.C1036S, p.S1064F, p.R1078C), two splice site mutations (IVS2+2T>G, IVS8+2T>A), six frameshift mutations (p.H216fs, p.K433fs, p.G507fs, p.P727fs, p.V955fs, p.K1201fs), and two nonsense mutations (p.R426X, p.Q600X) found in Japanese patients with DSH. We did not establish any clear correlation between the clinical phenotypes and the genotypes of ADAR1 gene mutations in our examination of 16 cases plus four pedigrees. None of the different mutations identified in our studies of 20 cases suggested any founder effect. Furthermore, we did not identify any mutations in the ADAR1 gene of three patients with dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria or three patients with acropigmentatio reticularis, indicating that the two diseases are completely different from DSH, although they have sometimes been suggested to be phenotypical variations of DSH.

Summary Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is a pigmentary genodermatosis of autosomal dominant inheritance characterized by a mixture of hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules distributed on the dorsal aspects of the hands and feet. It is caused by mutations of the RNA-specific adenosine deaminase gene. We report the identification of a Chinese family with a three-generation pedigree of DSH, in whom a novel tyrosine substitution mutation in DSRAD was demonstrated: a heterozygous nucl...

Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is an autosomal dominant pigmentary genodermatosis characterized by hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules of on the extremities and caused by the mutations in the ADAR gene(also called DSRAD) encoding for RNA-specific adenosine deaminase. Here we reported clinical and molecular findings of 6 Chinese multi-generation families and 2 sporadic patients with DSH. We found that the same mutation could lead to different phenotypes even in the same family a...

Summary Background Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is an autosomal dominant pigmentary genodermatosis characterized by hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules on the extremities, which has recently been mapped to an 11·6-cM interval on chromosome 1q11–21. So far, most cases of DSH have been reported in Japan and dermatologists around the world might think this disorder mainly occurs in Japan. In fact, there are 17 DSH families including 136 cases reported in China since 1980, but mo...

We report a familial case of dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria (DUH) which is compatible with an autosomal dominant inheritance. The male proband from Bangladesh presented with randomly distributed hyper- and hypo-pigmented skin lesions of variable shape and size with a mottled appearance. Three additional members of the non-consangineous family are similarly affected. Light and electron microscopy show normal numbers of active melanocytes, but different amounts of fully melanized melanosom...

Abstract One type of RNA editing involves the conversion of adenosine residues into inosine in double-stranded RNA through the action of adenosine deaminases acting on RNA (ADAR). A-to-I RNA editing of the coding sequence could result in synthesis of proteins not directly encoded in the genome. ADAR edits also non-coding sequences of target RNAs, such as introns and 3′-untranslated regions, which may affect splicing, translation, and mRNA stability. Three mammalian ADAR gene family members (ADAR...

Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is a hereditary skin disease characterized by the presence of hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules on extremities and face. The gene, or even its chromosomal location, for DSH has not yet been identified. In this study, two Chinese families with DSH were identified and subjected to a genomewide screen for linkage analysis. Two-point linkage analysis for pedigree A (maximum LOD score [Zmax] = 7.28 at recombination fraction [θ] = 0.00) and pedigree B...

Abstract Adenosine deaminases acting on RNA (ADAR) convert adenosine residues into inosines in double-stranded RNA. Three vertebrate ADAR gene family members, ADAR1,ADAR2, and ADAR3, have been identified. The catalytic domain of all three ADAR gene family members is very similar to that of Escherichia coli cytidine deaminase and APOBEC-1. Homodimerization is essential for the enzyme activity of those cytidine deaminases. In this study, we investigated the formation of complexes between different...

Adenosine-to-inosine (A-to-I) RNA editing is a post-transcriptional modification of pre-mRNA catalysed by an RNA-specific adenosine deaminase (ADAR). A-to-I RNA editing has been previously reported in the pre-mRNAs of brain glutamate and serotonin receptors and in lung tissue during inflammation. Here we report that systemic inflammation markedly induces inosine-containing mRNA to approximately 5% of adenosine in total mRNA. Induction was the result of up-regulation of A-to-I RNA editing as both...

Cellular identity is not driven by differences in genomic content but rather by epigenomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic heterogeneity. Although regulation of the epigenome plays a key role in shaping stem cell hierarchies, differential expression of transcripts only partially explains protein abundance. The epitranscriptome, translational control, and protein degradation have emerged as fundamental regulators of proteome complexity that regulate stem cell identity and function. Here, we discus...

Our body expresses sensors to detect pathogens through the recognition of expressed molecules, including nucleic acids, lipids, and proteins, while immune tolerance prevents an overreaction with self and the development of autoimmune disease. Adenosine (A)-to-inosine (I) RNA editing, catalyzed by adenosine deaminases acting on RNA (ADARs), is a post-transcriptional modification that can potentially occur at over 100 million sites in the human genome, mainly in Alu repetitive elements that prefer...

Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is a pigmentary genodermatosis caused by mutations in ADAR1. In this study, we performed mutation analysis on a family that included typical DSH patients. No mutations were found in any coding regions or exon-intron boundary regions of ADAR1, but a previously unreported non-coding heterozygous variant, c.-60A>G, was found in the 5' untranslated region (5'UTR) of ADAR1 in the proband and her mother. The function of 5'UTR in mRNA is not well-understood. ...

Dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria is an autosomal dominant condition with an onset in infancy or early childhood and is characterized by generalized mottled pigmentation. Palm, sole and oral mucosa too may be affected. The nails may be hyperpigmented and dystrophic with pterygium formation. The condition is benign and does not cause significant morbidity. However, it follows a progressive course. There is no effective treatment.

In recent years, genetic techniques of diagnosis have shown rapid development, resulting in a modified clinical approach to many diseases, including neurological disorders. Movement disorders, in particular those arising in childhood, pose a diagnostic challenge. First, from a purely phenomenological point of view, the correct clinical classification of signs and symptoms may be difficult and require expert evaluation. This is because the clinical picture is often a mixture of hyperkinetic and h...

Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH, OMIM 127400) is a rare pigmentary genodermatosis with an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance that is characterized by a mixture of hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules on the dorsal regions of the extremities and freckle-like macules on the face. ADAR1 is the corresponding causal gene of DSH.1Here, we report a novel heterozygous mutation in the ADAR1 gene in a Chinese family with DSH that may potentially be responsible for the observed clinical ...

Cole disease is a genodermatosis of pigmentation following a strict dominant mode of inheritance. In this study, we investigated eight patients affected with an overlapping genodermatosis after recessive inheritance. The patients presented with hypo- and hyperpigmented macules over the body, resembling dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria in addition to punctuate palmoplantar keratosis. By homozygosity mapping and whole-exome sequencing, a biallelic p.Cys120Arg mutation in ectonucleotide pyrop...
