The protein encoded by this gene is an intermediate filament-associated protein that aggregates keratin intermediate filaments in mammalian epidermis. It is initially synthesized as a polyprotein precursor, profilaggrin (consisting of multiple filaggrin units of 324 aa each), which is localized in keratohyalin granules, and is subsequently proteolytically processed into individual functional filaggrin molecules. Mutations in this gene are associated with ichthyosis vulgaris.[provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009] (from
Bisgaard et al., Copenhagen, Denmark. In Pediatr Pulmonol, Feb 2015
The risk factor analyses included genetic variants in DENND1B, Filaggrin, and ORMDL3; anthropometrics; demographics; socioeconomics; paternal atopy; maternal smoking, and mother's consumption of paracetamol and antibiotics during 3rd trimester; and neonatal bacterial airway colonization.
Vavilin et al., Novosibirsk, Russia. In Genet Test Mol Biomarkers, 2014
We determined the frequencies of null mutations of the FLG gene--2282del4, R501X, R2447X, 3702delG, S3247X, and the 12-repeat allele (rs12730241)--among 460 Caucasians of the city of Novosibirsk, Russia.

Low molecular weight soybean peptide (LSP) was applied to normal human epidermal keratinocytes, and the results showed a significant increase in the gene expression levels of involucrin, transglutaminase, and profilaggrin.
Amagai et al., In Nihon Rinsho Meneki Gakkai Kaishi, 2013
We demonstrated that flaky tail mice possess loss of function mutation in Filaggrin (Flg) which is one of the major component of stratum corneum, and showed skin barrier abnormality, although our genetically engineered Flg null mice did not develop dermatitis spontaneously.
