Comment on list classification: Kept rating as Red: insufficient direct evidence to link PPARG to cicatricial (scarring) alopecia.

PMID:19052558 (Karnik et al., 2009, reviewed by PMID:19369934) report that targeted deletion of PPAR-gamma in follicular stem cells in mice, causes a skin and hair phenotype that emulates cicatricial (scarring) alopecia.
