Often, a given patient has 2 different types of mutations, 1 of which allows a greater production of functional perlecan protein than the other.
However, the findings by Stum et al should be important tools to help find correlations among genetic variants, perlecan forms and levels, and clinical subtypes.
The investigators developed perlecan knock-in mice to model SJS.
An additional point of interest related to perlecan is that another disease, called dyssegmental dysplasia of the Silverman-Handmaker type (DDSH), is also caused by a recessive mutation of the perlecan gene.
Therefore, whereas in SJS types IA and IB some level of functional (and often even normal) perlecan protein is always produced, in DDSH, none is produced.
Perlecan, basal lamina proteoglycan, promotes basic fibroblast growth factor-receptor binding, mitogenesis, and angiogenesis.

The formation of Perlecan acts as a precursor to many more exciting partnerships in the area of drug discovery and development for the Indian pharmaceutical industry.
Company scientists have determined that regulating the expression of perlecan can provide direct protection against this disease.
