Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria is a rare autosomal dominant cutaneous disorder characterized by a mixture of hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules of various sizes on the face and the dorsal aspects of the extremities. The genetic basis for this disease is unknown. We performed a genome-wide search in two large Chinese families to map the chromosome location of the responsible gene. We identified a locus at chromosome 1q11–1q21 with a cumulative maximum two-point LOD score of 8.85 at marker D1S2343 (at recombination fraction=0.00). Haplotype analyses indicated that the disease gene is located within the 11.6 cM region between markers D1S2696 and D1S2635. This is the first locus identified for dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria. This study provides a map location for isolation of a disease gene causing dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria.

Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is a hereditary skin disease characterized by the presence of pigmented and hypopigmented macules on the extremities and freckles on the face. However, if clinical features are not fully developed in infantile patients, it is difficult to differentiate DSH from xeroderma pigmentosum by clinical features alone. A 2-year-old boy (patient 1), revealed atypical features of DSH with slight susceptibility to sunburn. However, his grandfather (patient 4) who ...

Abstract Reticulate acropigmentation of Dohi is a rare dyschromic disorder that generally has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. Most of the cases have primarily been described from Japan. Only a few similar cases have been described elsewhere. We describe 3 black siblings, one boy and two girls, who had progressive reticulate hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules over the dorsa of hands and feet, which began in early childhood. There were no palmar pits or breaks of the epidermal ...

The molecular bases of various types of congenital hypopigmentary disorders have been clarified in the past 10 years. Homozygous gene mutations of enzymes functional in melanogenesis such as tyrosinase, P protein and DHICA oxidase, result in oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) 1, OCA 2, and OCA 3, respectively. The genes responsible for Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome (HPS) and Chediak-Higashi syndrome (CHS) have also recently been isolated and cloned. The transcription factor paired box 3 (PAX3) works at t...

Abstract Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is an autosomal dominant pigmentary disorder, first reported by Toyama in 1910. It is characterized by a mixture of hypopigmented and hyperpigmented macules of various sizes on the backs of the hands and feet. The disease gene of DSH and its chromosomal localization have not yet been identified. A family with DSH and idiopathic torsion dystonia (ITD), a rare neurological disease, was recently reported. Therefore, we speculated that there was a...

Abstract Reticulate acropigmentation (RA) comprises dyschromic disorders that generally have an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance, Two main forms of RA have been described: reticulate acropigmentation of Kitamura (RAK) and reticulate acropigmentation of Dohi (RAD). We observed a 21-year-old white woman who had progressive reticulate hyper- and hypopigmentation on the volar surface of her forearms and the dorsa of her hands. Many of her relatives have similar lesions. There were no pits o...

: A 13-year-old boy had progressive pigmentary changes affecting his limbs which began when he was 9 months of age. He also had a history of cafe au lalt macules on his trunk since birth which were becoming more numerous. The diagnosis of reticulate acropigmentation of Dohi (dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria) and neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) was made on the basis of the clinical features. To our knowledge, this is the first report of these two conditions occurring in the same patient.

The introduction of stochastic methods in pedigree analysis has enabled geneticists to tackle computations intractable by standard deterministic methods. Until now these stochastic techniques have worked by running a Markov chain on the set of genetic descent states of a pedigree. Each descent state specifies the paths of gene flow in the pedigree and the founder alleles dropped down each path. The current paper follows up on a suggestion by Elizabeth Thompson that genetic descent graphs offer a...

Phototherapy has been used to treat postoperative pain and inflammatory response in rheumatoid arthritis. Confidence in this approach, however, is impaired by lack of understanding of the light-triggered cellular and molecular mechanisms. The purpose of this study was to characterize the response of human synoviocyte MH7A cells to visible LED red light in an attempt to elucidate the associated action mechanism. Human synoviocyte MH7A cells were treated with 630-nm LED light after stimulation of ...

Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy, previously known as low-level laser therapy, was discovered more than 50 years ago, yet there is still no agreement on the parameters and protocols for its clinical application. Some groups have recommended the use of a power density less than 100 mW/cm2 and an energy density of 4 to 10 J/cm2 at the level of the target tissue. Others recommend as much as 50 J/cm2 at the tissue surface. The wide range of parameters that can be applied (wavelength, energy, fluence...

Since the initial Food and Drug Administration clearance of the first photobiomodulation device for androgenetic alopecia in 2007, the market for these devices has rapidly expanded. Sixteen unique devices are currently available to consumers with varying designs, treatment durations and frequency. While the precise mechanism for hair growth stimulation remains to be elucidated, current evidence suggests the laser light alters hair cycle duration to promote the anagen growth phase. Photobiomodula...

NETosis is a novel immune defense strategy in which neutrophil activation results in the formation of extracellular DNA/protein network which is able to kill microbial populations. NETosis can be induced in vitro by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or phorbol myristate acetate (PMA). Due to the importance of NETosis in different physiological and pathological processes, photobiostimulation effect on this neutrophil activation mechanism has been investigated. Human granulocytes, isolated from venous bloo...

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the neural protein expression pattern of human multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells (hMSCs) treated with forskolin (free-form/FF). The study investigated forskolin’s capacity to enhance intracellular levels of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) by activating adenylate cyclase and probably by inducing neuron-like cells in vitro. In addition, because nanotechnology is a growing field of tissue engineering, we also assessed the action of a new sy...

Oral mucositis is an acute toxicity that occurs in patients submitted to chemoradiotherapy to treat head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. In this study, we evaluated differences in gene expression in the keratinocytes of the oral mucosa of patients treated with photobiomodulation therapy and tried to associate the molecular mechanisms with clinical findings. From June 2009 to December 2010, 27 patients were included in a randomized double-blind pilot study. Buccal smears from 13 patients were o...
