BACKGROUND: Suprabasin (SBSN), a secreted protein, is expressed in various epithelial tissues. The role of SBSN in epidermal differentiation and atopic dermatitis (AD) pathology remains largely unknown. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of SBSN on epidermal keratinocytes and its role in AD. METHODS: We examined the SBSN expression levels in the stratum corneum and the epidermis by proteome analysis and immunohistochemistry, respectively. The serum SBSN concentration was measured by ELISA...

BACKGROUND: We sometimes encounter difficulties in assessing the severity of pediatric atopic dermatitis (AD) using currently available biomarkers such as thymus and activation-regulated chemokine (TARC) due to the higher baseline values in non-AD children. Recent case control studies have indicated the usefulness of squamous cell carcinoma antigens (SCCAs) in pediatric and adult AD. Notably, SCCAs are induced by IL-4 and IL-13, vital Th2 cytokines that play important roles in AD etiology...

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. Anti-TNFα, IL-17A and IL-23p19 antibodies are effective for psoriasis. However, the contribution of regulatory T cells (Treg) in their effectiveness remains to be elucidated. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the effects of TNFα, IL-17A and IL-23p19 inhibition on Tregs in imiquimod-induced psoriasiform dermatitis. METHODS: Psoriasiform dermatitis was induced by imiquimod application on murine shaved back skin for six days...

BACKGROUND: Zinc deficiency is believed to be a predisposing factor for the development and intractable healing of pressure ulcers (PUs); however, the mechanisms of this association have not been elucidated. OBJECTIVE: Objective was to elucidate the mechanisms of the formation of severe and prolonged PUs under the zinc deficiency condition. METHODS: We assessed PUs formation after cutaneous ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in mice fed with a zinc-adequate (ZA) or a zinc-deficient (ZD) diet from 2 weeks before I/R injury...

Dysbiosis is a key pathogenic factor in the cycle of skin barrier impairment and inflammation in atopic dermatitis (AD). Skin microbial composition in AD is characterized by increased presence of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and decrease in microbial diversity and commensal bacterial species. Attenuation of S. aureus-driven inflammation aids in breaking the itch-scratch cycle via modulation of the cutaneous immune response. Skin bacterial transplant (SBT), a form of bacteriotherapy, is an intriguing treatment modality for restoration of a healthy skin microbiome in AD patients...

BACKGROUND: Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a common autoimmune bullous dermatosis in the elderly, with immunoglobulin G (IgG) autoantibodies playing a major role in its pathogenesis. Kampo medicine has been used to ameliorate BP. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether baicalein, a major compound in Ou-gon, a crude drug used in Kampo medicine, protects normal human epidermal keratinocytes (NHEKs) against BP-IgG-induced damage. METHODS: Microscopic examination of living cells, ELISA, a SYTOX green uptake assay, and an intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) accumulation assay were used to determine the effects of baicalein on BP-IgG-induced cell damage...

Identifying the function of kallikrein-related peptidases (KLKs) in the epidermis has elicited great interest over recent decades. KLKs comprise 15 serine proteases, and their activities are regulated by complex and fine-tuned mechanisms involving the proteolytic activation cascade, endogenous inhibitors, and environmental factors. When the balance is disrupted, excessive or insufficient protease activity can impair epidermal barrier homeostasis. KLKs are involved in various events, such as skin inflammation, wound healing, pruritus, anti-bacterial activity, and viral susceptibility...

Cutaneous ulcers are a common cause of morbidity. We have developed a de novo epithelialization method for treating cutaneous ulcers by means of reprogramming wound-resident mesenchymal cells in vivo into cells able to form a stratified epithelium: induced stratified epithelial progenitors (iSEPs). Administration of 4 transcription factors (DNP63A, GRHL2, TFAP2A, and cMYC) expressed via adeno-associated viral vectors enabled generation of epithelial cells and tissues, thereby acheiving de novo epithelialization from the surfaces of cutaneous ulcers in a mouse model...

BACKGROUND: A number of studies have shown the relationship between the pathogenesis of psoriasis and skin resident memory T (TRM ) cells. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the cytokine profile of TRM cells from skin lesions of psoriasis and the relationship of skin TRM cells to the future clinical course of psoriasis. METHODS: We used stocked samples of T cells that were ex vivo expanded from skin biopsies of 10 patients with psoriasis vulgaris. A half of 4-mm punch biopsy specimens was subjected to expansion of skin-infiltrating T cells using IL-2 and anti-CD3/CD28 antibody-coated microbeads...

BACKGROUND: Local type III hypersensitivity reactions are acute inflammatory events induced by immune complex (IC) deposition. CD22 and CD72 are B cell-specific cell surface molecules that negatively regulate B cell function. OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the roles of CD22 and CD72 in the development of IgG-mediated type III hypersensitivity reactions. METHOD: The reverse Arthus reaction model in the skin was induced in mice lacking CD22 (CD22-/- ), CD72 (CD72-/- ), and both of them (CD22-/- /CD72-/- )...

The human skin is populated by recirculating T cells and skin-sessile resident memory T cells (TRM ). Skin TRM are constructed during immune responses against antigens that the host immune system encounters in the skin. TRM persist in the same sites for a long time and play important protective roles in skin immune responses in collaboration with other skin-composing cells such as dendritic cells and keratinocytes. These TRM with strong effector functions possibly also engender skin inflammatory disorders. Since human skin T cells, especially TRM , are phenotypically distinct from T cells in the blood circulation, T cells residing in the skin should be directly investigated, without presuming from the activities of blood T cells, in order to understand the functional characteristics of skin T cells in skin disorders...

BACKGROUND: Netherton syndrome (NS) is a rare but severe type of ichthyosis characterized by atopy, allergies, and potentially lethal skin overdesquamation associated with highly elevated proteolytic activities in LEKTI-deficient epidermis. NS symptoms are recapitulated in Spink5-/- mouse where the gene encoding Lekti has been invalidated. Spink5-/- mice die within 5 h from birth due to their severe skin barrier defect leading to dehydration. Spink5-/- mice also serve as a model for atopic dermatitis...

BACKGROUND: Dietary interventions are implicated in the development of atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of diet and the bile acid (BA) receptors, such as TGR5 (Takeda G protein receptor 5) and S1PR2 (sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor 2) in the development of dermatitis. METHODS: C57BL/6 mice were fed a control diet (CD) or Western diet (WD) since weaning until they were 10 months old followed by analyzing histology, gene expression, and BA profiling...
