Xeroderma pigmentosum is a rare photosensitive syndrome that comprises eight different genetic diseases (A to G; variant (V)). Although genotype-phenotype correlations have been evaluated in most XP groups, the relationship between the E subgroup of xeroderma pigmentosum (XP-E) and damage-specific DNA binding protein (DDB) still remained a mystery. Recent studies have provided new insight for XP-E and the role(s) of DDB2, a smaller subunit of DDB. Reclassification studies have confirmed that… CONTINUE READING
