A retinoic acid-inducible skin-specific gene (RIS-1/psoriasin): molecular cloning and analysis of gene expression in human skinin vivo and cultured skin cellsin vitro


A retinoic acid (RA) inducible skin-specific gene transcript (RIS-1) was isolated by differential hybridization screening of a RA-treated human skin cDNA library. The library was constructed from pooled RNA derived from normal adult human skin treated with alltrans-RA for 4 h (n=6) and 12 h (n=6)in vivo. RIS-1 cDNA corresponded to a 0.6 kb transcript that… (More)
