Dogged genetics research identifies genes associated with skin disorder Print E-mail
With patches of exposed skin, large lesions across her face and dull, expressionless eyes, you might think Lorelei, a Shetland sheepdog, has been abused. But that would be far from the truth: Lorelei is loved and well cared-for. She suffers from a painful condition called dermatomyositis, a genetic skin disorder that affects dogs and humans. The discovery, by Leigh Anne Clark, an associate professor of genetics at Clemson University, and her colleagues, could improve the future for dogs with dermatomyositis.
