Epidermal Langerhans cells (LCs) are spatially separated from dermal dendritic cells (DCs) in healthy human skin. In active psoriasis, maintained by local production of IL-23 and IL-17, DCs infiltrate both skin compartments. Here we show that CCR2(+) epidermal DCs (eDCs), phenotypically distinct from dermal DCs, were strictly confined to lesional psoriasis. The eDCs exceeded the number of LCs and displayed high expression of genes involved in neutrophil recruitment and the activation of keratinocytes and T cells...

Psoriasis is a chronic cutaneous inflammatory disease. The immunopathogenesis is a complex interplay between T cells, dendritic cells and the epidermis in which T cells and dendritic cells maintain skin inflammation. Anti-tumour necrosis factor (anti-TNF)-α agents have been approved for therapeutic use across a range of inflammatory disorders including psoriasis, but the anti-inflammatory mechanisms of anti-TNF-α in lesional psoriatic skin are not fully understood. We investigated early events in skin from psoriasis patients after treatment with anti-TNF-α antibodies by use of bioinformatics tools...

Psoriasis is an autoimmune inflammatory skin disease characterized by activated IL-23/STAT3/Th17 axis. Recently psoriatic inflammation has been shown to be associated with asthma. However, no study has previously explored how psoriatic inflammation affects airway inflammation. Therefore, this study investigated the effect of imiquimod (IMQ)-induced psoriatic inflammation on cockroach extract (CE)-induced airway inflammation in murine models. Mice were subjected to topical and intranasal administration of IMQ and CE to develop psoriatic and airway inflammation respectively...

Dendritic cells (DCs) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of psoriasis but the roles for specific DC subsets are not well defined. Here we show that DCs are required for psoriasis-like changes in mouse skin induced by the local injection of IL-23. However, Flt3L-dependent DCs and resident Langerhans cells are dispensable for the inflammation. In epidermis and dermis, the critical DCs are TNF-producing and IL-1β-producing monocyte-derived DCs, including a population of inflammatory Langerhans cells. Depleting Ly6C(hi) blood monocytes reduces DC accumulation and the skin changes induced either by injecting IL-23 or by application of the TLR7 agonist imiquimod...

BACKGROUND: Langerhans cells (LCs) are epidermis-resident dendritic cells that sense and mediate stimuli from skin and outside world, and participate in various skin diseases, playing either pro-inflammatory or regulatory roles. However, the exact function of LCs in the pathogenesis of psoriasis remains unclear, and the conclusions of previous studies are controversial. OBJECTIVES: To explore the role of LCs in mouse model of imiquimod (IMQ)-induced psoriasis-like dermatitis using langerin-diphtheria toxin A (DTA) mice that are constitutively deficient in LCs...

In the previous work, we have indicated that HMGB1, a pro-inflammatory cytokine, is closely associated with the pathogenesis of psoriasis. To further clarify the role of HMGB1 in the pathogenesis of psoriasis, we investigated the direct function of HMGB1 application and HMGB1 blockade in imiquimod (IMQ)-induced psoriatic mouse model in this study. Mice were treated with imiquimod (IMQ) to induce psoriasis-like inflammation, and consecutively injected with recombinant HMGB1 or phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) i...

Psoriasis is a chronic, immune-mediated disorder with cutaneous and systemic manifestations and substantial negative effects on patient quality of life. Psoriasis has a strong, albeit polygenic, genetic basis. Whereas approximately half of the accountable genetic effect of psoriasis maps to the major histocompatibility complex, >70 other loci have been identified, many of which implicate nuclear factor-κB, interferon signalling and the IL-23-IL-23 receptor axis. Psoriasis pathophysiology is characterized by abnormal keratinocyte proliferation and immune cell infiltration in the dermis and epidermis involving the innate and adaptive immune systems, with important roles for dendritic cells and T cells, among other cells...

A Disintegrin-like and Metalloprotease domain containing Thrombospondin type 1 motif-like 5 (ADAMTSL5) is a melanocyte-derived protein that has recently been implicated as an activating antigen for IL-17-producing T cells in psoriasis. There is a potential disconnect between the basal location of the melanocytes in the epidermis and the fact that T-cell infiltrates are seen mostly scattered in the epidermis with very large infiltrates in the dermis. Thus, we hypothesized that ADAMTSL5 may be expressed in other cells aside from melanocytes in skin...

Interleukin (IL)-23 plays a central role in the orchestration of inflammatory responses. Produced by dendritic cells and macrophages, this cytokine promotes the protection of the host against mucosal pathogens through the induction of IL-17 and related cytokines by lymphoid cells. Preclinical disease models and association studies in humans have also clearly demonstrated the implication of IL-23 signalling pathway in inflammatory diseases. Indeed, this cytokine is now considered as a major therapeutic target in immune-based pathologies such as psoriasis, ankylosing spondylitis or Crohn's disease...

Environmental triggers and genetic factors are supposed to lead to complex gene expression changes in psoriasis and interact in the manifestation of the disease. The histamine H4 receptor (HRH4) is functionally expressed on Th17 cells and plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) which play a prominent role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. On pDCs a higher basal expression level of the HRH4 in psoriasis patients compared to healthy controls has been detected. The functional relationship between predisposing genetic variations in the HRH4 gene and psoriasis is yet not known...

β,β-dimethylacryloyl alkannin (DMA) is a key component of Lithospermum and possesses good efficacy for treating psoriasis. DMA inhibits activated dendritic cells (DCs), but the mechanism is unknown. Therefore, this study aimed to explore the modulation of the TLR7/8 pathway by DMA in psoriasis-activated DCs. Models of psoriasis-like skin lesions were established using BALB/c mice; 8 mice were treated with DMA (2.5mg/kg). Bone marrow cells were isolated and induced into DCs using R848, a TLR7/8 agonist. Splenic CD11c+ cells were detected by flow cytometry...

Inflammatory disorders of the skin pose particular therapeutic challenges due to complex structural and functional alterations of the skin barrier. Penetration of several anti-inflammatory drugs is particularly problematic in psoriasis, a common dermatitis condition with epidermal hyperplasia and hyperkeratosis. Here, we tested in vivo dermal penetration and biological effects of dendritic core-multishell-nanocarriers (CMS) in a murine skin model of psoriasis and compared it to healthy skin. In both groups, CMS exclusively localized to the stratum corneum of the epidermis with only very sporadic uptake by Langerhans cells...

BACKGROUND: The ichthyoses are rare genetic disorders associated with generalized scaling, erythema, and epidermal barrier impairment. Pathogenesis-based therapy is largely lacking because the underlying molecular basis is poorly understood. OBJECTIVE: We sought to characterize molecularly cutaneous inflammation and its correlation with clinical and barrier characteristics. METHODS: We analyzed biopsy specimens from 21 genotyped patients with ichthyosis (congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma, n = 6; lamellar ichthyosis, n = 7; epidermolytic ichthyosis, n = 5; and Netherton syndrome, n = 3) using immunohistochemistry and RT-PCR and compared them with specimens from healthy control subjects, patients with atopic dermatitis (AD), and patients with psoriasis...

The skin immune system comprises a heterogeneous network of local cellular immune mediators. Their complex interplay establishes an efficient first line barrier defense against pathogens and other environmental assaults. It also assures immune homeostasis and tolerance of the commensal microbiota. In psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin disease, this skin immune homeostasis is dysregulated resulting in immune cell infiltration and hyperplasia of epidermal keratinocytes.

Several drugs have been approved for treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) is utilized as an oral drug to treat this disease and is proven to be potent with less side effects than several other drugs. On the other hand, monomethyl fumarate (MMF), a related compound, has not been examined in greater details although it has the potential as a therapeutic drug for MS and other diseases. The mechanism of action of DMF or MMF is related to their ability to enhance the antioxidant pathways and to inhibit reactive oxygen species...

The astounding capacity of the mammalian immune system to cope with almost any microbial antigen is owed to its virtually unlimited repertoire of T- and B-cell receptors. Since self-antigens (or auto-antigens) are also recognized by some of these receptors, several effective mechanisms have evolved to contain and regulate auto-reactivity, and also to prevent catastrophic auto-inflammatory events.

BACKGROUND: The activation of Toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) in dendritic cells (DCs) plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. The macrolide antibiotic azithromycin (AZM) had been demonstrated to inhibit the TLR4 agonist-induced maturation and activation of murine bone marrow-derived DCs (BMDCs). OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of AZM on the induction of DC maturation and activation by imiquimod (IMQ), a synthetic TLR7 agonist, as well as its potential as a therapeutic agent for psoriasis...

Regulation of the inflammatory response involves the control of dendritic cell survival. To our knowledge, nothing is known about the survival of plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) in such situation. pDC are specialized in type I IFN (IFN-I) secretion to control viral infections, and IFN-I also negatively regulate pDC survival during the course of viral infections. In this study, we asked about pDC behavior in the setting of virus-free inflammation. We report that pDC survival was profoundly reduced during different nonviral inflammatory situations in the mouse, through a mechanism independent of IFN-I and TLR signaling...

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), DNA webs released into the extracellular environment by activated neutrophils, are thought to play a key role in the entrapment and eradication of microbes. However, NETs are highly cytotoxic and a likely source of autoantigens, suggesting that NET release is tightly regulated. NET formation involves the activity of neutrophil elastase (NE), which cleaves histones, leading to chromatin decondensation. We and others have recently demonstrated that inhibitors of NE, such as secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor (SLPI) and SerpinB1, restrict NET production in vitro and in vivo...
