Abstract

The protease inhibitor cystatin M/E (CST6) regulates a biochemical pathway involved in stratum corneum homeostasis, and its deficiency in mice causes ichthyosis and neonatal lethality. Cystatin M/E deficiency has not been described in humans so far, and we did not detect disease-causing mutations in the CST6 gene in a large number of patients with autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis, who were negative for mutations in known ichthyosis-associated genes. To investigate the phenotype of CST6 deficiency in human epidermis, we used lentiviral delivery of short hairpin RNAs that target CST6 in a 3D reconstructed skin model. Surprisingly, CST6 deficiency did not cause an ichthyosis-like phenotype, but prevented the development of a multilayered epidermis. From this study, we conclude that CST6 deficiency may be incompatible with normal human foetal development.
