Germline TP63 mutations are responsible for a group of human ectodermal dysplasia syndromes. Different TP63 alleles identified in ADULT and EEC patients were functionally characterized in yeast, studied in a mammalian cell line and modeled based on the crystal structure of the P63 DNA-binding domain. Interestingly, the mutants associated with the ADULT phenotype were characterized by a severe defect in transactivation on DN-P63α-specific response elements derived from genes closely related to the clinical manifestations of the TP63-associated syndromes, namely PERP and COL18A1.
