Development of ectodermal appendages, such as hair, teeth, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, and mammary glands, requires the action of the TNF family ligand ectodysplasin A (EDA). Mutations of the X-linked EDA gene cause reduction or absence of many ectodermal appendages and have been identified as a cause of ectodermal dysplasia in humans, mice, dogs, and(More)

X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (XLHED), the most common inherited disorder of ectoderm development affecting the skin and its appendages, glands, and teeth, is caused by a lack of the signaling molecule ectodysplasin A1 (EDA1).
