Summaries for Diffuse Scleroderma

About this section


Fully expand this MalaCard
MalaCards based summary: Diffuse Scleroderma, also known as diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis, is related to interstitial lung disease and systemic scleroderma, and has symptoms including anomalies of skin, subcutaneous tissue and mucosae, dry/squaly skin/exfoliation and dermal/subcutaneous infiltration/induration. An important gene associated with Diffuse Scleroderma is CTGF (connective tissue growth factor), and among its related pathways are amb2 Integrin signaling and Development TGF beta receptor signaling. The compounds des-arg(10)-kallidin and kallidin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, lung and bone, and related mouse phenotype homeostasis/metabolism.
