BACKGROUND: Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is known to be one of the most important environmental hazards acting on the skin. The most part of UV radiation is absorbed in the epidermis, where keratinocytes are the most abundant and exposed cell type. Lipids have an important role in skin biology, not only for their important contribution to the maintenance of the permeability barrier but also for the production and storage of energy, membrane organization and cell signalling functions. However, the effects on the lipid composition of keratinocytes under UV radiation are little explored...

BACKGROUND: Rhododendrol (4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanol) has been used as a lightening/whitening cosmetic but was recently reported to induce leukoderma. Although rhododendrol has been shown to be transformed by tyrosinase to hydroxyl-rhododendrol, which is cytotoxic to melanocytes, its detailed mechanism of action including the involvement of reactive oxygen species is not clearly understood. OBJECTIVE: To confirm the relationship of hydroxyl radical generation to melanocyte cytotoxicity induced by rhododendrol, this study was performed...

BACKGROUND: Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a group of hereditary disorders caused by mutations in the genes encoding structural molecules of the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ). Cell-based therapies such as allogeneic mesenchymal stem/stromal cell (MSC) transplantation have recently been explored for severe EB types, such as recessive dystrophic EB (RDEB). However, hurdles exist in current MSC-based therapies, such as limited proliferation from a single cell source and limited cell survival due to potential allogenic rejection...

BACKGROUND: (R)-(+)-pulegone (PLG), a biotransformation of monoterpene ketones, is one of essential oils of Labiatae family. Although PLG was reported to have anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine effects, the therapeutic effects of PLG on atopic dermatitis (AD) have not been reported yet. OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the anti-AD effects and underlying mechanisms of PLG in AD-induced mice. METHODS: BALB/c male mice were challenged with 2, 4-dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB, 1%) to induce AD...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have revealed that DNA methylation (DNAm) could modulate gene expression in psoriasis (Ps). However, the relationship between whole-genome DNAm and gene expression in Ps has not been studied yet. OBJECTIVES: To better characterize the relationship between DNAm and gene expression, and to identify biological pathways triggered by changes in methylation involved in the pathogenesis of Ps. METHODS: Differentially methylated sites (DMSs) and differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were analysed by comparing 20 involved psoriatic (PP) skin, 20 uninvolved psoriatic (PN) skin and 20 normal (NN) skin biopsies...

BACKGROUND: Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a highly prevalent inflammatory disease of the skin. As a result of the complex etiology in ACD, therapeutic compounds targeting refractory pruritus in ACD lack efficacy and lead to numerous side effects. OBJECTIVE: In this study, we investigated the anti-pruritic effects of oxymatrine (OMT) and explored its mechanism of action in a mouse model of ACD. METHOD: 72 male SPF C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into control group, ACD model group, dexamethasone positive control group (0...

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a systemic inflammatory disease with dramatic responses to TNF-α inhibitors. TNF-α is mainly produced by macrophages. However, how macrophage polarization contributes to psoriasis remains unknown. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate the molecular mechanisms of macrophage polarization in psoriasis. METHODS: 8 patients with moderate to severe psoriasis (Male/Female: 4/4, average age: 47.9 years old) and 8 healthy controls (Male/Female: 4/4, average age: 49...

BACKGROUND: Sex-determining region Y-box (SOX) proteins function as transcriptional regulators. The derivation of melanocytes from nerve crest cells has been reported to depend on SOX proteins, including SOX10 and SOX5. Whether SOX6 is expressed and has a functional role in melanocytes is unknown. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to study the effect of transcription factor SOX6 on melanogenesis in alpaca melanocytes. METHODS: We verified the role of SOX6 in melanogenesis by overexpressing and inhibiting SOX6 in melanocytes...

BACKGROUND: Hyperthermia is an effective treatment against cancer and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Previous studies have shown that heat shock proteins are crucial to the action of hyperthermia. OBJECTIVES: To examine the effects of hyperthermia in combination with DNAJA4-deficiency on human keratinocytes and Condyloma acumunatum (CA) tissues. METHODS: HaCaT cells were subjected to 44 °C (compared to 37 °C) waterbath for 30 min for stimulation...

BACKGROUND: Skin acts as a protective barrier against direct contact with pollutants but inhalation and systemic exposure have indirect effect on keratinocytes. Exposure to diesel exhaust has been linked to increased oxidative stress. OBJECTIVE: To investigate global proteomic alterations in diesel particulate extract (DPE)/its vapor exposed skin keratinocytes. METHODS: We employed Tandem Mass Tag (TMT)-based proteomics to study effect of DPE/DPE vapor on primary skin keratinocytes...

BACKGROUND: Actinic keratoses (AK) are proliferations of neoplastic keratinocytes in the epidermis resulting from cumulative exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR), which are liable to transform into squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Organ Transplant Recipients (OTR) have an increased risk of developing SCC as a consequence of long-term immunosuppressive therapy. The aim of this study was to determine the molecular signature of AKs from OTR prior to treatment with methyl aminolevulinate-photodynamic therapy (MAL-PDT), and to assess what impact the treatment has on promoting remodeling of the photo-damaged skin...

BACKGROUND: De novo hair regeneration occurs in scars of normal adult mice. This interesting phenomenon is termed as wound-induced hair neogenesis (WIHN). We hypothesized that M2 macrophages are crucially involved in WIHN. OBJECTIVE: To clarify the contribution of M2 macrophages to WIHN. METHOD: We established a mouse model of WIHN. A full thickness skin excision was implemented on the back of C57BL/6 (B6) mice. Newly developing hair follicles were detected by a whole-mount assay...

BACKGROUND: Artificial visible light is everywhere in modern life. Social communication confronts us with screens of all kinds, and their use is on the rise. We are therefore increasingly exposed to artificial visible light, the effects of which on skin are poorly known. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to model the artificial visible light emitted by electronic devices and assess its effect on normal human fibroblasts. METHODS: The spectral irradiance emitted by electronic devices was optically measured and equipment was developed to accurately reproduce such artificial visible light...
