Summary for Patent: 5,811,233
Title: Compositions and uses thereof in the diagnosis of psoriasis
Abstract:A psoriasis susceptibility locus defined as among linked members within a family has been identified. The locus is linked to an intron of the interleukin enhancer binding factor gene in some families, while being linked to an interleukin 8 gene in other families demonstrating a familial linked form of psoriasis. The locus identified may be further defined as being located distal to genetic maker D17S784 of human chromosome 17q. This locus does not demonstrate linkage with DNA markers within flanking the HLA cluster of genes. A psoriasis susceptibility locus has also been observed close to the centromere of human chromosome 4. Both identified regions provide positive LOD scores with markers on chromosomes 17q and particularly 2 regions close to the ILF gene or the interleukin 8 gene. Methods of screening a family for psoriasis susceptibility using a defined familial psoriasis susceptibility locus are also disclosed. A cDNA capable of detecting a genetic polymorphism identifying the psoriasis susceptibility locus in families with a psoriasis afflicted member, and a process for preparing such a cDNA, are further disclosed. The molecular probes disclosed herein are also known to hybridize with the distal region of human chromosome 17q and with chromosome 4q, and therefore are useful for detecting a genetic lesion in chromosome 17q and 4q. A psoriasis gene related to familial forms of psoriasis is also disclosed. This gene maps to the distal end of human chromosome 17q and has close proximity or is within a gene encoding interleukin enhancer binding factor.
