A novel multiplex analysis of filaggrin polymorphisms: A universally applicable method for genotyping
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
The filaggrin protein is expressed as profilaggrin mainly in stratum granulosum cells of the epidermis. The profilaggrin gene codes for 10-12 filaggrin repeats. The filaggrin protein is important for skin barrier function. Filaggrin deficiency due to functional null-polymorphisms affects 8-10% of the people in Northern Europe and is a strong risk factor for several diseases. Here, we describe a novel method for efficient, multiplexed genotyping of variations in the profilaggrin gene.
