Flightless I over-expression impairs skin barrier development, function and recovery following skin blistering
Development of an intact epidermis is critical for maintaining the integrity of the skin. Patients with epidermolysis bullosa (EB) experience multiple erosions, which breach the epidermal barrier and lead to increased microbial colocalization of wounds, infections and sepsis. The cytoskeletal protein Flightless I (Flii) is a known regulator of both development and wound healing. Using Flii+/-, WT and FliiTg/Tg mice, we investigated the effect of altering Flii levels in embryos and adult mice on...[Show more]
