ABSTRACT
The article presents information about various articles published in the March 1997 issue of the periodical "Journal of Investigative Dermatology." In the article "Genotype and Phenotype in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Type IV" researchers show that mutations in the region of the COL3A1 gene coding for the triple helix affect the size and distribution of dermal collagen fibrils in patients with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Type IV. In the article "A Possible Role for TIMP-1 in Scleroderma" researchers report that TIMP-1 may be an autocrine growth factor, that is, a factor both secreted by and acting on adjacent fibroblasts, in scleroderma.

    Background: The Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a heritable connective tissue disorder characterized by hyperextensible skin, joint hypermobility and soft tissue fragility. The classic subtype of EDS is caused by mutations in one of the type V collagen genes (COL5A1 and COL5A2). Most mutations...

    A novel point mutation in a patient with vascular type Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is herein reported. The patient experienced pneumothorax and multiple arterial troubles during the past 10 years. The patient’s hand skin was atrophic, and a paper-like atrophic scar was seen. The collagen...

    A considerable proportion of aortic aneurysms are shown to have genetic backgrounds. The COL3A1 gene, which encodes type III procollagen and causes Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) type IV, is one of the candidate genes associated with aortic aneurysms. The COL3A1 gene is also associated with...

    Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV (EDS type IV) results from heterozygosity for mutations in the COL3A1 gene that encodes the chains of type III procollagen. By using light, transmission, and scanning electron microscopy, we examined skin biopsies from 22 individuals with EDS type IV in whom the...
