Melanocortin 1 receptor variants in an Irish population.
The identification of an association between variants in the human melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) gene and red hair and fair skin, as well as the relation between variants of this gene and coat colorExpand

Terahertz Pulsed Spectroscopy of Human Basal Cell Carcinoma
Good contrast is seen between normal tissue and regions of tumor in terahertz pulsed imaging of basal cell carcinoma (BCC). To date, the source of contrast at terahertz frequencies is not wellExpand

Quantitative measures of the effect of the melanocortin 1 receptor on human pigmentary status.
Variation in human hair and skin color is the most striking visible aspect of human genetic variation. The only gene known to exert an effect on pigmentary within the normal population is theExpand

The relation between melanocortin 1 receptor genotype and experimentally assessed ultraviolet radiation sensitivity.
Pigmentary phenotype is a key determinant of an individual's response to ultraviolet radiation with the presence of phaeomelanin thought to be of particular importance. Reports of minimal erythemaExpand

Low frequency of genetic change in p53 immunopositive clones in human epidermis.
Sun-exposed skin of Caucasians harbors thousands of p53-mutated clones, which are clinically invisible. Using whole mount immunostaining for p53 or Ki67 antigens, p53 sequencing, and loss ofExpand

Pseudo-Kaposi's sarcoma: the association of arterio-venous malformations with skin lesions resembling Kaposi's sarcoma.
A patient is described with skin lesions resembling Kaposi's sarcoma (KS). Arteriography revealed multiple arteriovenous malformations in the affected limb. This condition has been termedExpand

Genetic Studies of the Human Melanocortin‐1 Receptor
ABSTRACT: Genetic approaches have suggested a critical role for the melanocortin‐1 receptor in the control of pigmentation. We showed that this gene is unusually polymorphic in European populationsExpand
