MalaCards: Alopecia is related to alopecia areata and alopecia universalis. An important gene associated with Alopecia is HR (hair growth associated), and among its related pathways are Th17 Differentiation and Downstream signaling in naive CD8+ T cells. The compounds alpha-galactosylceramide and 17-hydroxypregnenolone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, t cells and thyroid, and related mouse phenotypes are integument and tumorigenesis.

Disease Ontology:8 A hypotrichosis that is characterized by a loss of hair from the head or body.
