LOR, Loricrin, NLRR-1
This gene encodes loricrin, a major protein component of the cornified cell envelope found in terminally differentiated epidermal cells. Mutations in this gene are associated with Vohwinkel's syndrome and progressive symmetric erythrokeratoderma, both inherited skin diseases. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

Jarzab et al., Zabrze, Poland. In Int Arch Allergy Immunol, 2009
the deregulated increase in SPRR1A expression in chronic atopic skin lesions reflects an insufficient rise in SPRR transcripts, unable to compensate for the lack of LOR and thus contributing to the persistence of chronic atopic dermatitis skin lesions.
