EDA targets revealed by skin gene expression profiles of wild-type, Tabby and Tabby EDA-A1 transgenic mice.

Mutations in the EDA gene cause anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (EDA), with lesions in skin appendage formation. To begin to analyze EDA pathways, we have used expression profiling on 15,000-gene mouse cDNA microarrays, comparing adult mouse skin from wild-type, EDA-defective (Tabby) mice, and Tabby mice supplemented with the EDA-A1 isoform, which is… (More)
