A frequent functional SNP in the MMP1 promoter is associated with higher disease severity in recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.


Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) is caused by mutations in the COL7A1 gene encoding type VII collagen. Variations in severity between the different clinical forms of RDEB likely depend on the nature and location of COL7A1 mutations, but observed intrafamilial phenotypic variations suggest additional genetic and/or environmental factors… (More)
