Quick Reference

A transcriptional corepressor (1189 aa) for the thyroid hormone receptor, produced by the human homologue of the mouse hairless gene. It may regulate any one of the three phases of hair growth: anagen (growth phase), catagen (shortening phase), and telogen (resting phase) but the exact mode of action is unclear. Mutations lead to alopecia universalis congenita and congenital atrichia.
