Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research

  • Grant-in-Aid for Young Scientists,2020.04 - 2023.03

Other external funds procured

  • Identification and functional analyzes of chemical-induced vitiligo susceptibility genes.,2016.04 - 2019.03,Identification and functional analyzes of chemical-induced vitiligo susceptibility genes.

    In order to identify susceptibility genes for chemical-induced vitiligo, we identified at least one gene in genome-wideassociation study in 147 patients with Rhododenol-induced leukoderma (RD) and 112 controls. No loci did not achieve genome-wide significance (P<5x10-8), however, 3 loci achieved suggestive level (P<10-6). Functional investigation revealed that one of the 3 loci, gene A, would be a susceptibility gene for RD with siRNA and expression experiments. Furthermore, the gene A was turned out to not contribute susceptibility to another chemicals.
