Disorders for TMEM79 Gene


  • Note=Defects in TMEM79 may be associated with susceptibility to atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is a complex, inflammatory disease with multiple alleles at several loci thought to be involved in the pathogenesis. It commonly begins in infancy or early childhood and is characterized by a chronic relapsing form of skin inflammation, a disturbance of epidermal barrier function that culminates in dry skin, and IgE-mediated sensitization to food and environmental allergens. It is manifested by lichenification, excoriation, and crusting, mainly on the flexural surfaces of the elbow and knee.
