Summaries for Uv-Sensitive Syndrome 2

OMIM® : 57 UV-sensitive syndrome-2 (UVSS2) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by cutaneous photosensitivity and increased freckling, without an increased risk of skin tumors. Patient cells show impaired recovery of RNA synthesis (RRS) after UV irradiation due to defective preferential repair of DNA damage in actively transcribing genes, although unscheduled DNA repair is normal. The cellular findings are consistent with a defect in transcription-coupled nucleotide excision repair (TC-NER) of UV damage (summary by Nardo et al., 2009). See also Cockayne syndrome type A (CSA; 216400), an allelic disorder with a more severe phenotype including neurologic symptoms and skeletal abnormalities. For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of UVSS, see UVSS1 (600630). (614621) (Updated 20-May-2021)

MalaCards based summary : Uv-Sensitive Syndrome 2, is also known as uvss2. An important gene associated with Uv-Sensitive Syndrome 2 is ERCC8 (ERCC Excision Repair 8, CSA Ubiquitin Ligase Complex Subunit). Affiliated tissues include skin, and related phenotypes are freckling and cutaneous photosensitivity
