Fibroblast apoptosis in a patient affected by lamellar ichthyosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Lamellar ichthyosis (LI) is a congenital recessive skin disorder characterized by generalized scaling and hyperkeratosis. The pathology may be caused by mutations in transglutaminase 1 (TGM1) gene that encodes an enzyme critical for terminally differentiating keratinocytes.
