A group of connective tissue diseases in which skin hangs in loose pendulous folds. It is believed to be associated with decreased elastic tissue formation as well as an abnormality in elastin formation. Cutis laxa is usually a genetic disease, but acquired cases have been reported. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Connective tissue comprised chiefly of elastic fibers. Elastic fibers have two components: ELASTIN and MICROFIBRILS.
A salt-soluble precursor of elastin. Lysyl oxidase is instrumental in converting it to elastin in connective tissue.
A group of enzymes that catalyze the reduction of 1-pyrroline carboxylate to proline in the presence of NAD(P)H. Includes both the 2-oxidoreductase (EC 1.5.1.1) and the 5-oxidoreductase (EC 1.5.1.2). The former also reduces 1-piperidine-2-carboxylate to pipecolate and the latter also reduces 1-pyrroline-3-hydroxy-5-carboxylate to hydroxyproline.
Genes that influence the PHENOTYPE only in the homozygous state.
Macromolecular organic compounds that contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and usually, sulfur. These macromolecules (proteins) form an intricate meshwork in which cells are embedded to construct tissues. Variations in the relative types of macromolecules and their organization determine the type of extracellular matrix, each adapted to the functional requirements of the tissue. The two main classes of macromolecules that form the extracellular matrix are: glycosaminoglycans, usually linked to proteins (proteoglycans), and fibrous proteins (e.g., COLLAGEN; ELASTIN; FIBRONECTINS; and LAMININ).
Mucoid states characterized by the elevated deposition and accumulation of mucin (mucopolysaccharides) in dermal tissue. The fibroblasts are responsible for the production of acid mucopolysaccharides (GLYCOSAMINOGLYCANS) in the ground substance of the connective tissue system. When fibroblasts produce abnormally large quantities of mucopolysaccharides as hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, or heparin, they accumulate in large amounts in the dermis.

A type of mutation in which a number of NUCLEOTIDES deleted from or inserted into a protein coding sequence is not divisible by three, thereby causing an alteration in the READING FRAMES of the entire coding sequence downstream of the mutation. These mutations may be induced by certain types of MUTAGENS or may occur spontaneously.
The outer covering of the body that protects it from the environment. It is composed of the DERMIS and the EPIDERMIS.
An inherited disorder of copper metabolism transmitted as an X-linked trait and characterized by the infantile onset of HYPOTHERMIA, feeding difficulties, hypotonia, SEIZURES, bony deformities, pili torti (twisted hair), and severely impaired intellectual development. Defective copper transport across plasma and endoplasmic reticulum membranes results in copper being unavailable for the synthesis of several copper containing enzymes, including PROTEIN-LYSINE 6-OXIDASE; CERULOPLASMIN; and SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE. Pathologic changes include defects in arterial elastin, neuronal loss, and gliosis. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p125)

Psychosocial implications of blepharoptosis and dermatochalasis. (1/63)

PURPOSE: To investigate, for the first time, the psychosocial implications of blepharoptosis and dermatochalasis. METHODS: Two hundred ten individuals rated whole-face photographs of a series of patients on the basis of 11 different personal characteristics: intelligence, throat, friendliness, health, trustworthiness, hard work, mental illness, financial success, attractiveness, alcoholism, and happiness. Preoperative and postoperative photographs of both male and female patients with bilateral blepharoptosis and/or dermatochalasis were used. The paired t test was used to compare preoperative and postoperative ratings on the 11 characteristics. RESULTS: The preoperative photographs were rated more negatively than the postoperative photographs (P < .01-P < .001) on all 11 characteristics for both male and female patients by the 210 study subjects. CONCLUSIONS: Members of society seem to view individuals with blepharoptosis and dermatochalasis negatively. These psychosocial attitudes may lead to unjust bias toward affected patients, and surgical correction likely provides benefits beyond improved visual function.  (+info)

Homozygosity for a missense mutation in fibulin-5 (FBLN5) results in a severe form of cutis laxa. (2/63)

Hereditary cutis laxa comprises a heterogeneous group of connective tissue disorders characterized by loose skin and variable systemic involvement. Autosomal dominant and recessive as well as X-linked forms have been described. Some dominant forms are caused by mutations in the elastine gene (ELN). The X-linked form is now classified in the group of copper transport diseases. The genetic defect underlying the autosomal recessive (AR) forms of cutis laxa is not known. The phenotypic abnormalities recently observed in a fibulin-5 knockout mouse model are reminiscent of human AR cutis laxa type I. Both share cutis laxa, lung emphysema and arterial involvement. Molecular study of the fibulin-5 (FBLN5) gene in a large consanguineous Turkish family with four patients affected by AR cutis laxa type I demonstrated the presence of a homozygous missense mutation (T998C) in the FBLN5 gene resulting in a serine-to-proline (S227P) substitution in the fourth calcium-binding epidermal growth factor-like domain of fibulin-5 protein. This amino acid substitution is predicted to have important structural and functional consequences for normal elastogenesis. As such, we provide evidence that a genetic defect in fibulin-5 (FBLN5, also known as EVEC or DANCE) is responsible for a recessive form of cutis laxa in humans.  (+info)

Genetic heterogeneity of cutis laxa: a heterozygous tandem duplication within the fibulin-5 (FBLN5) gene. (3/63)

Inherited cutis laxa is a connective tissue disorder characterized by loose skin and variable internal organ involvement, resulting from paucity of elastic fibers. Elsewhere, frameshift mutations in the elastin gene have been reported in three families with autosomal dominant inheritance, and a family with autosomal recessive cutis laxa was recently reported to have a homozygous missense mutation in the fibulin-5 gene. In the present study, we analyzed the gene expression of elastin and fibulins 1-5 in fibroblasts from five patients with cutis laxa. One patient was found to express both normal (2.2 kb) and mutant (2.7 kb) fibulin-5 mRNA transcripts. The larger transcript contains an internal duplication of 483 nucleotides, which resulted in the synthesis and secretion of a mutant fibulin-5 protein with four additional tandem calcium-binding epidermal growth factor-like motifs. The mutation arose from a 22-kb tandem gene duplication, encompassing the sequence from intron 4 to exon 9. No fibulin-5 or elastin mutations were detected in the other patients. The results demonstrate that a heterozygous mutation in fibulin-5 can cause cutis laxa and also suggest that fibulin-5 and elastin gene mutations are not the exclusive cause of the disease.  (+info)

Congenital cutis laxa syndrome: type II autosomal recessive inheritance. (4/63)

Cutis laxa is a term that refers to markedly loose skin that is not hyperelastic. It is regarded as a genetically heterogeneous group of diseases and is presently divided into five types. We report a male patient with type II autosomal recessive disease. The patient was the third child of first-cousin consanguineous, healthy parents. His two siblings died a few hours after birth. One of the siblings also had similar features and wrinkled skin. Our case had markedly loose and wrinkled skin especially over the dorsum of the hands and feet, and on the face and abdomen, dolichocephaly, hypertelorism, blepharochalasis, long filtrum, pectus excavatus, large fontanelles, prominent low-set ears and umbilical hernia. These findings and skin biopsy were consistent with cutis laxa syndrome. In addition to these findings, consanguinity, atypical facies, large fontanelles and umbilical hernia were typical manifestations of type II autosomal recessive cutis laxa.  (+info)

Defective protein glycosylation in patients with cutis laxa syndrome. (5/63)

Congenital cutis laxa is a genetically heterogeneous condition presenting with loose and redundant skin folds, decreased elasticity of the skin, connective tissue involvement and a highly variable spectrum of associated features. The most common forms are inherited in an autosomal recessive or dominant fashion. Fibulin 5 and elastin mutations were detected in a limited number of patients, but in most cases the etiology is not known. Based on a previous observation of an abnormal transferrin isoelectric focusing pattern in a patient with cutis laxa indicating an N-glycosylation defect, we performed a screening for disorders of protein glycosylation in unrelated children with cutis laxa syndrome, including a recently developed test for defective O-glycosylation. Here, we describe five patients from consanguineous marriages with a cutis laxa syndrome with skeletal and joint involvement, developmental delay and neurological findings. Three of these five children have an inborn error of glycan biosynthesis affecting the synthesis of both N- and O-linked glycans. Two patients had normal glycosylation patterns. All known causes of secondary glycosylation disorders were excluded in the children. No mutations were found in the FBLN5 gene. In conclusion, we have identified a new combined glycosylation defect with a distinct clinical phenotype. Our results suggest that a combined defect of glycosylation might be a causative factor in congenital cutis laxa. This is the first report where abnormal N- and O-linked glycosylation is implicated in the etiology of cutis laxa syndrome.  (+info)

Autosomal dominant cutis laxa with severe lung disease: synthesis and matrix deposition of mutant tropoelastin. (6/63)

Cutis laxa (CL) is a heterogeneous group of genetic and acquired disorders with at least two autosomal dominant forms caused by mutations in the elastin and fibulin-5 genes, respectively. To define the molecular basis of CL in patients negative for point mutations in the elastin gene, metabolic labeling and immunoprecipitation experiments were used to study the synthesis of elastin in dermal fibroblasts. In addition to the normal 68 kDa tropoelastin (TE) protein, an abnormal, 120 kDa polypeptide was detected in the proband and her affected daughter in a CL family characterized by hernias and unusually severe and early-onset pulmonary disease including bronchiectasis and pulmonary emphysema. Mutational and gene expression studies established that affected individuals in this family carried a partial tandem duplication in the elastin locus. Immunoprecipitation experiments showed that the mutant TE was partially secreted and partially retained intracellularly. A polyclonal antibody raised against a unique peptide in the mutant TE molecule showed both intracellular and matrix staining. We conclude that elastin mutations can cause CL associated with a severe pulmonary phenotype. Synthesis of abnormal TE may interfere with elastic fiber function through a dominant-negative or a gain of function mechanism.  (+info)

A combined defect in the biosynthesis of N- and O-glycans in patients with cutis laxa and neurological involvement: the biochemical characteristics. (7/63)

Based on our preliminary observation of abnormal glycosylation in a cutis laxa patient, nine cutis laxa patients were analyzed for congenital defects of glycosylation (CDG). Isoelectric focusing of plasma transferrin and apolipoproteinC-III showed that three out of nine patients had a defect in the biosynthesis of N-glycans and core 1 mucin type O-glycans, respectively. Mass spectrometric N-glycan analyses revealed a relative increase of glycans lacking sialic acid and glycans lacking sialic acid and galactose residues. Mutation analysis of the fibulin-5 gene (FBLN5), which has been reported in cases of autosomal recessive cutis laxa, revealed no mutations in the patients' DNA. Evidence is presented that extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins of skin are likely to be highly glycosylated with N- and/or mucin type O-glycans by using algorithms for predicting glycosylation. The conclusions in this study were that the clinical phenotype of autosomal recessive cutis laxa seen in three patients is not caused by mutations in the FBLN5 gene. Our findings define a novel form of CDG with cutis laxa and neurological involvement due to a defect in the sialylation and/or galactosylation of N- and O-glycans. Improper glycosylation of ECM proteins of skin may form the pathophysiological basis for the cutis laxa phenotype.  (+info)

Aortic aneurysmal disease and cutis laxa caused by defects in the elastin gene. (8/63)

BACKGROUND: Cutis laxa is an acquired or inherited condition characterized by redundant, pendulous and inelastic skin. Autosomal dominant cutis laxa has been described as a benign disease with minor systemic involvement. OBJECTIVE: To report a family with autosomal dominant cutis laxa and a young girl with sporadic cutis laxa, both with variable expression of an aortic aneurysmal phenotype ranging from mild dilatation to severe aneurysm or aortic rupture. METHODS AND RESULTS: Histological evaluation of aortic aneurysmal specimens indicated classical hallmarks of medial degeneration, paucity of elastic fibres, and an absence of inflammatory or atherosclerotic lesions. Electron microscopy showed extracellular elastin deposits lacking microfibrillar elements. Direct sequencing of genomic amplimers detected defects in exon 30 of the elastin gene in affected individuals, but did not in 121 normal controls. The expression of mutant elastin mRNA forms was demonstrated by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction analysis of cutis laxa fibroblasts. These mRNAs coded for multiple mutant tropoelastins, including C-terminally truncated and extended forms as well as for molecules lacking the constitutive exon 30. CONCLUSIONS: ELN mutations may cause severe aortic disease in patients with cutis laxa. Thus regular cardiac monitoring is necessary in this disease to avert fatal aortic rupture.  (+info)

Autosomal recessive cutis laxa is a genetically heterogeneous condition. Its molecular basis is largely unknown. Recently, a combined disorder of N- and O-linked glycosylation was described in children with congenital cutis laxa in association with severe central nervous system involvement, brain migration defects, seizures and hearing loss. We report on seven additional patients with similar clinical features in combination with congenital disorder of glycosylation type IIx. On the basis of phenotype in 10 patients, we define an autosomal recessive cutis laxa syndrome. The patients have a complex phenotype of neonatal cutis laxa, transient feeding intolerance, late closure of the fontanel, characteristic facial features including down-slanting palpebral fissures, short nose and small mouth, and developmental delay. There is a variable degree of the central nervous system involvement and variable systemic presentation. The biochemical analysis using transferrin isoelectric focusing gives false ...

Autosomal recessive cutis laxa type I (ARCL type I) is characterized by generalized cutis laxa with pulmonary emphysema and/or vascular complications. Rarely, mutations can be identified in FBLN4 or FBLN5. Recently, LTBP4 mutations have been implicated in a similar phenotype. Studying FBLN4, FBLN5, and LTBP4 in 12 families with ARCL type I, we found bi-allelic FBLN5 mutations in two probands, whereas nine probands harbored biallelic mutations in LTBP4. FBLN5 and LTBP4 mutations cause a very similar phenotype associated with severe pulmonary emphysema, in the absence of vascular tortuosity or aneurysms. Gastrointestinal and genitourinary tract involvement seems to be more severe in patients with LTBP4 mutations. Functional studies showed that most premature termination mutations in LTBP4 result in severely reduced mRNA and protein levels. This correlated with increased transforming growth factor-beta (TGFβ) activity. However, one mutation, c.4127dupC, escaped nonsense-mediated decay. The ...
A connective tissue disorder characterized by loose, sagging, and inelastic skin. Autosomal dominant cutis laxa can be caused by mutations in the elastin gene.

The protein encoded by this gene is a secreted, extracellular matrix protein containing an Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motif and calcium-binding EGF-like domains. It promotes adhesion of endothelial cells through interaction of integrins and the RGD motif. It is prominently expressed in developing arteries but less so in adult vessels. However, its expression is reinduced in balloon-injured vessels and atherosclerotic lesions, notably in intimal vascular smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells. Therefore, the protein encoded by this gene may play a role in vascular development and remodeling. Defects in this gene are a cause of autosomal dominant cutis laxa, autosomal recessive cutis laxa type I (CL type I), and age-related macular degeneration type 3 (ARMD3).

Inherited disorders of elastic tissue represent a complex and heterogeneous group of diseases, characterized often by sagging skin and occasionally by life-threatening visceral complications. In the present study, we report on an autosomal-recessive disorder that we have termed MACS syndrome (macrocephaly, alopecia, cutis laxa, and scoliosis). The disorder was mapped to chromosome 20p11.21-p11.23, and a homozygous frameshift mutation in RIN2 was found to segregate with the disease phenotype in a large consanguineous kindred. The mutation identified results in decreased expression of RIN2, a ubiquitously expressed protein that interacts with Rab5 and is involved in the regulation of endocytic trafficking. RIN2 deficiency was found to be associated with paucity of dermal micro-fibrils and deficiency of fibulin-5, which may underlie the abnormal skin phenotype displayed by the patients.. ...

How To Tighten Up Loose Skin After Weight Loss I wanted to share my tips with you about how to deal with loose skin after weight loss.
Acquired those Loose Skin Blues?. Massive fat loss is a enormous decision, many of youve either gone through a enormous weight loss or are contemplating dealing with a enormous weight loss. One of the most frequent hesitations in losing weight is your consequent loose skin that does occur once the body has gone through a substantial weight reduction. It is common knowledge that losing weight = loose skin. Loose skin not only occurs with a large body weight loss but also using natural human anatomy phenomena such as pregnancy. That is because once the body moves through weight gain or during pregnancy; the own skin loses its elasticity. First patients come into talk about weightloss and bariatric operation, how it works as well as your own results. Many patients, however, decide they want to really go the less expensive and natural manner of strict exercise and diet however, are somewhat concerned about the loose skin. Our doctors always tell patients to be realistic, being healthy is far more ...

The ALDH18A1 gene is also associated with autosomal recessive pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthase (P5CS) deficiency (PMID: 11092761).
Vascular elasticity is crucial for maintaining hemodynamics. Molecular mechanisms involved in human elastogenesis are incompletely understood. We describe a syndrome of lethal arteriopathy associated with a novel,identical mutation in the fibulin 4 gene (FBLN4) in a unique cohort of infants from South India. Clinical characteristics, cardiovascular findings, outcomes and molecular genetics of twenty-two infants from a distinct population subgroup,presenting with characteristic arterial dilatation and tortuosity during the period August 2004 to June 2011 were studied.

Just last year, I moved north to Boston. When I got here, I joined a gym and stepped things up. My weight is now up to 160, and my bodyfat has slipped even further down. The thickness of the loose skin has decreased significantly. The most noticable change has been in my arms -- I once had that disgusting old lady arm flap problem, but now the skin has tightened there to the point where I can actually see the shape of the muscle underneath. They look phenomenal when Im working out (which is when your fat starts dissolving into the bloodstream and muscle size is its biggest), which just makes me want to push harder. Im far stronger than I ever was, which is terrific. And I can actually start seeing the outline of my abdominal muscles, which is incredibly thrilling ...

Menkes disease (MNKD) [MIM:309400]: An X-linked recessive disorder of copper metabolism characterized by generalized copper deficiency. MNKD results in progressive neurodegeneration and connective-tissue disturbances: focal cerebral and cerebellar degeneration, early growth retardation, peculiar hair, hypopigmentation, cutis laxa, vascular complications and death in early childhood. The clinical features result from the dysfunction of several copper-dependent enzymes. A mild form of the disease has been described, in which cerebellar ataxia and moderate developmental delay predominate. {ECO:0000269,PubMed:10079817, ECO:0000269,PubMed:10319589, ECO:0000269,PubMed:10401004, ECO:0000269,PubMed:11241493, ECO:0000269,PubMed:11350187, ECO:0000269,PubMed:15981243, ECO:0000269,PubMed:21667063, ECO:0000269,PubMed:22992316, ECO:0000269,PubMed:7977350, ECO:0000269,PubMed:8981948}.

If you have loose skin all over, choose a lower bodylift:. Whos it for: Those who are not obese, yet have mild to moderate amounts of excess fat, plus loose skin. Patients who are obese may respond better to a weight-loss operation initially, followed by a bodylift.. Why it works: Anytime a large amount of weight is lost, the skin doesnt recoil back to its original shape. Once the skin has been stretched over a period of time and lost its elasticity, the only way to get rid of the fat and loose skin is by surgically excising it, says San Antonio plastic surgeon Jorge L. Menendez, MD. The arms and thighs take well to this procedure ...
