We determined the frequencies of null mutations of the FLG gene--2282del4, R501X, R2447X, 3702delG, S3247X, and the 12-repeat allele (rs12730241)--among 460 Caucasians of the city of Novosibirsk, Russia. The frequency was 17.7% for rs12730241, 2.73% for 2282del4, 0.22% for R501X, 0.33% for R2447X, and 0% for 3702delG and S3247X in a western Siberian population. A case-control study showed that the deletion 2282del4 was associated with atopic dermatitis in children (odds ratio 7.01; p<0.001…

Revisiting the Roles of Filaggrin in Atopic Dermatitis
This review re-evaluate data focusing on the roles of filaggrin in the epidermis, as well as in AD, and finds that although FLG null mutations regulate skin moisture in non-lesional AD skin, filag Grin deficiency per se does not lead to the neutralization of skin surface pH or to excessive transepidermal water loss in atopic skin.
Filaggrin: from history of discovery to clinical usage (literature review)
It is expected that thanks to plant lipids this formula enhances the skin’s ability to renew, significantly slowing down the aging process and restores the skin's water-holding capacity, thereby normalizing the degree of hydration.

Intragenic Copy Number Variation within Filaggrin Contributes to the Risk of Atopic Dermatitis with a Dose-Dependent Effect
CNV within FLG makes a significant, dose-dependent contribution to atopic dermatitis risk, and therefore treatments to increase filaggrin expression may have therapeutic utility.
Comprehensive analysis of the gene encoding filaggrin uncovers prevalent and rare mutations in ichthyosis vulgaris and atopic eczema
It is shown that the common filaggrin (FLG) null mutations that cause ichthyosis vulgaris and predispose to eczema and secondary allergic diseases are ancestral variants carried on conserved haplotypes, and a strategy for full sequencing of this large, highly repetitive gene is reported.
Filaggrin Gene Defects Are Independent Risk Factors for Atopic Asthma in a Polish Population: A Study in ECAP Cohort
In a Polish population FLG 2282del4 and R501X carriage increases risk for development of AD and atopic asthma (also in the absence of AD or history thereof), which suggests that interventions aimed at restoring epidermal barrier may have a general role in asthma prophylaxis/treatment.
Full sequencing of the FLG gene in Italian patients with atopic eczema: evidence of new mutations, but lack of an association.
In Italian patients the frequencies of R501X and 2282del4 are strongly reduced with respect to those described in other patients of European origin, and the frequencies are similar between cases and controls.

No genotype–phenotype correlation has been observed in patients with FLG mutations and a restoration of the barrier function seems a feasible and promising strategy for treatment and prevention in individuals with filaggrin deficiency.
Wide spectrum of filaggrin‐null mutations in atopic dermatitis highlights differences between Singaporean Chinese and European populations
Background Null mutations in the filaggrin gene cause ichthyosis vulgaris (IV) and predispose to atopic dermatitis (AD), but the prevalent European FLG mutations are rare or absent in Chinese patients with IV and AD.
R501X and 2282del4 Filaggrin Mutations Do Not Confer Susceptibility to Psoriasis and Atopic Dermatitis in Italian Patients
Blood donors from the same ethnic background and without a history of PS, AD or other autoimmune disorders were selected as controls and specific sensitization was defined to be present if at least one of the specific IgE antibodies was positive.

Filaggrin gene defects and the risk of developing allergic disorders.
The restoration of skin barrier function seems a feasible and promising strategy for prophylactic treatment of AD patients with FLG mutations, which are significantly associated with AD-associated asthma.
