UV-sensitive syndrome is a cutaneous condition inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion, characterized by photosensitivity and solar lentigines. Recent research identified that mutations of the KIAA153 (UVSSA) gene as cause for the development of UV-sensitive syndrome. Furthermore this protein was identified as a new player in the Transcription-coupled repair (TC-NER).
