Epigenetics and systemic sclerosis.


The environment can trigger epigenetic regulation that in turn establishes a molecular framework linking environmental exposures to genetics, leading to the disease process, possibly in a genetically predisposed host. PubMed, Semin Immunopathol, 07/11/2015. (Also see Causes of Scleroderma:Genetics)
