    Elevation of serum IgE levels has long been associated with allergic diseases. Many genes have been linked to IgE production, but few have been linked to the developmental aspects of genetic association with IgE production. To clarify developmental genetic association, we investigated what genes...

    Atopy is a genetically determined disorder that affects 10%–20% of the population. Many symptoms of patients with atopy (allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis, asthma, and anaphylaxis) result from events occurring after cross-linking of cell-bound IgE by per se innocuous environmental...

    Background: Several studies have shown linkage of chromosome 12q 13–24 with atopy related phenotypes. Among candidate genes in this region is STAT6 (signal transducer and activator of transcription), which is essential for Th2 cell differentiation, recruitment, and effector function....

    Background. Evidence of genetic control for total serum IgE (tIgE) level has been reported in multiple populations, although populations with substantial exposure to helminths have yielded lower estimates of heritability, despite evidence suggesting that genes also control a significant portion...

    Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is one of the central players in asthma and allergic diseases. Although the serum IgE level, a useful endophenotype, is generally increased in patients with asthma, genetic factors influencing IgE regulation in asthma are still not fully understood. To identify the genetic...

    High levels of serum IgE are considered markers of parasite and helminth exposure. In addition, they are associated with allergic disorders, play a key role in anti-tumoral defence, and are crucial mediators of autoimmune diseases. Total IgE is a strongly heritable trait. In a genome-wide...

  • Genome-Wide Association Study for Levels of Total Serum IgE Identifies HLA-C in a Japanese Population. Yatagai, Yohei; Sakamoto, Tohru; Masuko, Hironori; Kaneko, Yoshiko; Yamada, Hideyasu; Iijima, Hiroaki; Naito, Takashi; Noguchi, Emiko; Hirota, Tomomitsu; Tamari, Mayumi; Imoto, Yoshimasa; Tokunaga, Takahiro; Fujieda, Shigeharu; Konno, Satoshi; Nishimura, Masaharu; Hizawa, Nobuyuki // PLoS ONE;Dec2013, Vol. 8 Issue 12, p1 

    Most of the previously reported loci for total immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels are related to Th2 cell-dependent pathways. We undertook a genome-wide association study (GWAS) to identify genetic loci responsible for IgE regulation. A total of 479,940 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were...

    We report the cases of 4-year-old identical twin sisters who presented with severe atopic dermatitis with intractable skin manifestations and multiple food allergies. Netherton syndrome (NS) (OMIM 256500) was suspected due to very high serum IgE levels, growth retardation, severe food allergies...

  • Uncoupling of Natural IgE Production and CD23 Surface Expression Levels. Ren, Weicheng; Lagerstedt, Kristina; Grimsholm, Ola; Stern, Anna; Sun, Jia-Bin; Fang, Yu; Xiang, Zou; Mårtensson, Inga-Lill // PLoS ONE;Apr2013, Vol. 8 Issue 4, p1 

    : CD23, the low affinity receptor for immunoglobulin E (IgE), has been proposed to play a critical role in the regulation of IgE production, based on altered IgE levels in CD23-deficient mice and transgenic mouse models, as well as in mouse strains with mutations in the CD23 gene, e.g. 129...
