Study Description

Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is characterized by a progressive and androgen-dependent loss of hair from the frontal and vertex regions of the scalp. Although large-scale genetic analyses have identified >300 genetic risk factors, the underlying causal genes and pathways, and their involvement in core pathophysiological mechanisms, remain unclear. In the present study, systematic profiling of differential mRNA and microRNA expression was performed in human hair follicle samples from frontal and occipital scalp regions. Taken together, the present data improve understanding of the genomic regions, genes, and pathways that are implicated in AGA pathobiology.
