UV-sensitive syndrome

UV-sensitive syndrome is a cutaneous condition inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion, characterized by photosensitivity and solar lentigines.[1] Recent research identified that mutations of the KIAA1530 (UVSSA) gene as cause for the development of UV-sensitive syndrome.[2] Furthermore this protein was identified as a new player in the Transcription-coupled repair (TC-NER).[2]
