LUTEINIZING HORMONE consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.
The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

Diverse developing mouse lineages exhibit high-level c-Myb expression in immature cells and loss of expression upon differentiation. (1/1203)

The c-myb gene encodes a sequence specific transactivator that is required for fetal hematopoiesis, but its potential role in other tissues is less clear because of the early fetal demise of mice with targeted deletions of the c-myb gene and incomplete of knowledge about c-myb's expression pattern. In the hematopoietic system, c-Myb protein acts on target genes whose expression is restricted to individual lineages, despite Myb's presence and role in multiple immature lineages. This suggests that c-Myb actions within different cell type-specific contexts are strongly affected by combinatorial interactions. To consider the possibility of similar c-Myb actions could extend into non-hematopoietic systems in other cell and tissue compartments, we characterized c-myb expression in developing and adult mice using in situ hybridization and correlated this with stage-specific differentiation and mitotic activity. Diverse tissues exhibited strong c-myb expression during development, notably tooth buds, the thyroid primordium, developing trachea and proximal branching airway epithelium, hair follicles, hematopoietic cells, and gastrointestinal crypt epithelial cells. The latter three of these all maintained high expression into adulthood, but with characteristic restriction to immature cell lineages prior to their terminal differentiation. In all sites, during fetal and adult stages, loss of c-Myb expression correlated strikingly with the initiation of terminal differentiation, but not the loss of mitotic activity. Based on these data, we hypothesize that c-Myb's function during cellular differentiation is both an activator of immature gene expression and a suppressor of terminal differentiation in diverse lineages.  (+info)

WNT signaling in the control of hair growth and structure. (2/1203)

Characterization of the molecular pathways controlling differentiation and proliferation in mammalian hair follicles is central to our understanding of the regulation of normal hair growth, the basis of hereditary hair loss diseases, and the origin of follicle-based tumors. We demonstrate that the proto-oncogene Wnt3, which encodes a secreted paracrine signaling molecule, is expressed in developing and mature hair follicles and that its overexpression in transgenic mouse skin causes a short-hair phenotype due to altered differentiation of hair shaft precursor cells, and cyclical balding resulting from hair shaft structural defects and associated with an abnormal profile of protein expression in the hair shaft. A putative effector molecule for WNT3 signaling, the cytoplasmic protein Dishevelled 2 (DVL2), is normally present at high levels in a subset of cells in the outer root sheath and in precursor cells of the hair shaft cortex and cuticle which lie immediately adjacent to Wnt3-expressing cells. Overexpression of Dvl2 in the outer root sheath mimics the short-hair phenotype produced by overexpression of Wnt3, supporting the hypothesis that Wnt3 and Dvl2 have the potential to act in the same pathway in the regulation of hair growth. These experiments demonstrate a previously unrecognized role for WNT signaling in the control of hair growth and structure, as well as presenting the first example of a mammalian phenotype resulting from overexpression of a Dvl gene and providing an accessible in vivo system for analysis of mammalian WNT signaling pathways.  (+info)

Procyanidin oligomers selectively and intensively promote proliferation of mouse hair epithelial cells in vitro and activate hair follicle growth in vivo. (3/1203)

We have previously reported that proanthocyanidins extracted from grape seeds possess growth-promoting activity toward murine hair epithelial cells in vitro and stimulate anagen induction in hair cycle progression in vivo. This report constitutes a comparison of the growth-promoting activity of procyanidin oligomers and the target cells of procyanidins in the skin. Results show that procyanidin dimer and trimer exhibit higher growth-promoting activity than the monomer. The maximum growth-promoting activity for hair epithelial cells with procyanidin B-2, an epicatechin dimer, reached about 300% (30 microM) relative to controls (= 100%) in a 5 d culture. Optimum concentration of procyanidin C-1, an epicatechin trimer, was lower than that of procyanidin B-2; the maximum growth-promoting activity of procyanidin C-1 was about 220% (3 microM). No other flavonoid compounds examined exhibit higher proliferative activities than the procyanidins. In skin constituent cells, only epithelial cells such as hair keratinocytes or epidermal keratinocytes respond to procyanidin oligomers. Topical application of 1% procyanidin oligomers on shaven C3H mice in the telogen phase led to significant hair regeneration [procyanidin B-2, 69.6% +/- 21.8% (mean +/- SD); procyanidin B-3, 80.9% +/- 13.0%; procyanidin C-1, 78.3% +/- 7.6%] on the basis of the shaven area; application of vehicle only led to regeneration of 41.7% (SD = 16.3%). In this paper, we demonstrate the hair-growing activity of procyanidin oligomers both in vitro and in vivo, and their potential for use as agents to induce hair growth.  (+info)

Topical gene delivery to murine skin. (4/1203)

We topically applied naked plasmid DNA containing the luciferase or chloramphenicol acetyltransferase cDNA directly to mouse skin. Gene expression was detected in skin samples as early as 4 h after DNA application, plateaued from 16 to 72 h post-application, and had decreased significantly by 7 d post-application. Reporter gene activity following topical DNA delivery was comparable with that produced by intradermal injection of DNA. Plasmid DNA at concentrations > or =0.25 microg per microl were required to achieve maximal expression levels. Reporter gene expression following topical administration was largely confined to the superficial layers of the epidermis and to hair follicles. Surprisingly, certain cationic liposomes inhibited the efficiency of cutaneous gene transfer. This technique provides a simple, clinically relevant approach to deliver genes to the skin, with potential application in treating a variety of cutaneous disorders.  (+info)

Association between mouse nude gene expression and the initiation of epithelial terminal differentiation. (5/1203)

Loss-of-function mutations in Whn (Hfh 11), a winged-helix/forkhead transcription factor, result in the nude mouse phenotype. To determine the whn expression pattern during development, we utilized mice in which a beta-galactosidase reporter gene was placed under the control of the wild-type whn promoter by homologous recombination (M. Nehls et al., 1996, Science 272, 886-889). Sites of reporter expression were confirmed by immunohistochemical staining for Whn protein or by in situ hybridization for whn mRNA. At all developmental stages, whn expression is restricted to epithelial cells. In addition to the skin and thymus, whn is expressed in the developing nails, nasal passages, tongue, palate, and teeth. In embryonic epidermis, suprabasal cells induce whn expression at the same time that terminal differentiation markers first appear. As the epidermis matures, whn promoter activity is found primarily in the first suprabasal layer, which contains keratinocytes in the early stages of terminal differentiation. In developing and mature anagen hair follicles, whn is expressed at high levels in the postmitotic precursor cells of the hair shaft and inner root sheath. Though principally associated with terminal differentiation, whn expression is also detected in progenitor cell compartments; in the hair bulb matrix and basal epidermal layer, a small subclass of cells expresses whn, while in the outer root sheath, whn promoter activity is induced as the follicle completes its elongation. Within these compartments, rare cells exhibit both whn expression and the nuclear proliferation marker Ki-67. The results suggest that whn expression encompasses the transition from a proliferative to a postmitotic state and that whn regulates the initiation of terminal differentiation.  (+info)

UVB irradiation stimulates deposition of new elastic fibers by modified epithelial cells surrounding the hair follicles and sebaceous glands in mice. (6/1203)

UVB irradiation stimulates the synthesis of elastin in the skin of humans and experimental animals. In this study we localized the site and the cells that are responsible for the synthesis of murine dermal elastic fibers. SKH-1 hairless mice were irradiated with UVB and the skin removed for light microscopy, electron microscopy, in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, and biochemical studies. In response to chronic low doses of UVB there was an initial moderate increase in tropoelastin mRNA in the papillary dermis. By contrast, there was a continuous marked elevation of collagen alpha1(I) message localizing to sites of inflammatory cell influx throughout the upper and lower dermis. After 25 wk of UV irradiation there was a 2-fold increase in skin elastin, yet total collagen remained unchanged. Serial desmosine analysis from en face sections indicated the increase in elastin content was due to dermal elastic fibers, an increase in the size and number of the dermal cysts, and an increase in subpanniculus elastic fibers. Elastin stains of en face sections suggested that the elastic fibers in the upper dermis were exclusively derived from cells lining the epithelial root sheath and sebaceous glands. In response to UV irradiation, the elastic fibers increased in number and size, wrapping around these structures and aligning in both directions as long fibers parallel to the body axis. Electron micrographs indicated that modified epithelial cells in close proximity to the flattened epithelial cells that encircled the root sheath and sebaceous glands were the source of the elastic fibers.  (+info)

Highly persistent label-retaining cells in the hair follicles of mice and their fate following induction of anagen. (7/1203)

We have identified some unusually persistent label-retaining cells in the hair follicles of mice, and have investigated their role in hair growth. Three-dimensional reconstruction of dorsal underfur follicles from serial sections made 14 mo after complete labeling of epidermis and hair follicles in neonatal mice disclosed the presence of highly persistent label-retaining cells associated with the first-generation follicle involved in the production of the first wave of hairs, commonly called the bulge. The label-retaining cells were most often found on the ventral surface of the first-generation follicle, five cell positions from the base, near the attachment site of the arrector pilorum muscle. No label-retaining cells were found in the hair canal, sebaceous gland, or hair germ. These label-retaining cells remained in the follicle following induction of anagen by plucking of the hairs. Surprisingly, they were not part of the first wave of mitotic activity following plucking, but instead underwent mitosis beginning 42 h after plucking. Label-retaining cells or their labeled daughters were not found in the hair germs through 48 h following induction of anagen by plucking, but instead remained in their subsebaceous follicular location even upon completion of the hair growth cycle 21 d later. These label-retaining cells are, therefore, unlikely to contribute to the formation of a new anagen follicle.  (+info)

A rapid and dynamic regulation of GDNF-family ligands and receptors correlate with the developmental dependency of cutaneous sensory innervation. (8/1203)

Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and neurturin (NTN) are members of the transforming growth factor-beta family and have been shown to elicit neurotrophic effects upon several classes of neurons including dopaminergic neurons, motoneurons, parasympathetic, sympathetic as well as primary sensory neurons. However, there is little information available on their roles in cutaneous innervation. Herein, we have studied the regulation of gdnf, ntn and the GDNF family receptors and examined their role in the development of facial cutaneous innervation in GDNF mutant mice. A dynamic spatial and temporal regulation of gdnf, ntn and their ligand binding receptors within the follicle-sinus complex correlate with development of distinct subclasses of sensory nerve endings. Furthermore, development of NGF-dependent myelinated mechanoreceptors, i.e. reticular and transverse lanceolate endings also require GDNF during ending formation and maintenance. In addition, ligand and receptor association seems to be intricately linked to a local Schwann cell-axon interaction essential for sensory terminal formation. Our results suggests that functionally specified nerve endings depend on different GDNF family members and that in contrast to neurotrophins, this family of neurotrophic factors may be acting at local sites of terminal Schwann cell-axon growth cone interactions and that they collaborate with neurotrophins by supporting the same populations of neurons but at different times in development.  (+info)

Hair follicle dermal papilla cells (HFDPC) are a specialized cell population located in the bulge of the hair follicle with unique characteristics such as aggregative behavior and the ability to induce new hair follicle formation. However, when expanded in conventional 2D monolayer culture, their hair inductive potency is rapidly lost. Different 3D culture techniques, including cell spheroid formation, have been described to restore, at least partially, their original phenotype, and therefore, their hair inductive ability once transplanted into a recipient skin. Moreover, hair follicle dermal papilla cells have been shown to differentiate into all mesenchymal lineages, but their differentiation potential has only been tested in 2D cultures. In the present work, we have cultured HFDPC in the 3D self-assembling peptide scaffold RAD16-I to test two different tissue engineering scenarios: restoration of HFDPC original phenotype after cell expansion and osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation. Experimental
Hair Restoration News: Lactate Influences Hair Follicle Stem Cells. New study suggests that Lactate may influence hair follicle stem cells in a dose dependent manner. What is Lactate?

It is increasingly evident that the molecular mechanisms underlying hair follicle differentiation and cycling recapitulate principles of embryonic patterning and organ regeneration. Here we used Hoxc13-overexpressing transgenic mice (also known as GC13 mice), known to develop severe hair growth defects and alopecia, as a tool for defining pathways of hair follicle differentiation. Gene array analysis performed with RNA from postnatal skin revealed differential expression of distinct subsets of genes specific for cells of the three major hair shaft compartments (cuticle, cortex, and medulla) and their precursors. This finding correlates well with the structural defects observed in each of these compartments and implicates Hoxc13 in diverse pathways of hair follicle differentiation. The group of medulla-specific genes was particularly intriguing because this included the developmentally regulated transcription factor-encoding gene Foxq1 that is altered in the medulladefective satin mouse hair
Abstract: Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and associated proteoglycans have important functions in homeostatic maintenance and regenerative processes (e.g., wound repair) of the skin. However, little is known about the role of these molecules in the regulation of the hair follicle cycle. Here we report that growing human hair follicles ex vivo in a defined GAG hydrogel mimicking the dermal matrix strongly promotes sustained cell survival and maintenance of a highly proliferative phenotype in the hair bulb and suprabulbar regions. This significant effect is associated with the activation of WNT/β-catenin signaling targets (CCDN1, AXIN2) and with the expression of stem cell markers (CK15, CD34) and growth factors implicated in the telogen/anagen transition (TGFβ2, FGF10). As a whole, these results point to the dermal GAG matrix as an important component in the regulation of the human hair follicle growth cycle, and to GAG-based hydrogels as potentially relevant modulators of this process both in vitro ...
We have investigated how Wnt and vitamin D receptor signals regulate epidermal differentiation. Many epidermal genes induced by β-catenin, including the stem cell marker keratin 15, contain vitamin D response elements (VDREs) and several are induced independently of TCF/Lef. The VDR is required for β-catenin induced hair follicle formation in adult epidermis, and the vitamin D analog EB1089 synergises with β-catenin to stimulate hair differentiation. Human trichofolliculomas (hair follicle tumours) are characterized by high nuclear β-catenin and VDR, whereas infiltrative basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) have high β-catenin and low VDR levels. In mice, EB1089 prevents β-catenin induced trichofolliculomas, while in the absence of VDR β-catenin induces tumours resembling BCCs. We conclude that VDR is a TCF/Lef-independent transcriptional effector of the Wnt pathway and that vitamin D analogues have therapeutic potential in tumors with inappropriate activation of Wnt signalling.. ...
Background: Recent studies have shown that erythropoietin (EPO)/erythropoietin receptor (EPOR) signaling exist in both human and mouse hair follicles (HFs). Objective: To investigate whether dermal papilla cells (DPCs) express functional EPOR and, if so, to investigate effects of EPO on hair shaft growth in cultured human scalp hair follicles and hair growth in mice. Methods: EPOR expression in DPCs and follicular keratinocytes was examined by RT-PCR and immunoblot. Phosphorylation of EPOR signaling pathway mediators by EPO treatment was examined by immunoblot. MTT assay was employed to check cell viability after EPO treatment. Hair shaft growth was measured in the absence or presence of EPO and matrix keratinocyte proliferation was examined by Ki-67 immunostaining in cultured hair follicles. Agarose beads containing EPO were implanted into dorsal skin of C57BL/6 mice to examine effects of EPO on hair growth in vivo. Results: EPOR mRNA and protein are expressed in cultured human DPCs. EPOR ...

Background. Emerging researches revealed the essential role of mitochondria in regulating stem/progenitor cell differentiation of neural progenitor cells, mesenchymal stem cells and other stem cells through reactive oxygen species (ROS), Notch or other signaling pathway. And inhibition of mitochondrial synthesis protein resulted in extension of hair loss upon injury. However, alteration of mitochondrial morphology and metabolic function during hair follicle stem cells (HFSCs) differentiation and how it affects hair regeneration has not been elaborated. Methods. We compared the difference between telogen bulge cells and anagen matrix cells in mitochondrial morphology and activity. Expression levels of mitochondrial ROS and superoxide dismutase 2 (SOD2) were measured for evaluating redox balance. Besides, pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase (PDK) and pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) were detected to present the change in energetic metabolism during differentiation. To explore the effect of the mitochondrial
But what are hair follicles anyway? Essentially, a follicle is a cell-lined sac from which strands of hair grow. Oil glands called the sebaceous glands are attached to the follicles and produce a fatty substance called sebum that cimbs up the follicle to our scalp. There the sebum oils our skin and hair.. But when hair follicles dont get enough nourishment, they can die. They simply become thinner and thinner until they eventually fall off our heads. When this happens, our scalp loses hair and we see baldness.. But when our hair thins out this doesnt necessarily mean our hair follicles are dead. Sometimes, for many different reasons, our hair follicles go into a resting phase and new hair growth temporarily stops. In the hair cycle, theres a resting phase called the telogen phase. But in this phase, while the old hair rests, new hair begins to grow. Therefore, even if our hair is this resting phase, hair is still growing. When hair follicles die, however, hair growth stops completely.. To ...

The burgeoning field of stem cell research is expanding beyond the initial studies that involved localizing, isolating and culturing of the cells. How stem cell homeostasis is regulated is now the focus of current research. Even more nascent is the idea of how homeostasis is regulated from signals outside the defined stem cell niche or microenvironment. The extra-niche area is defined as the Macroenvironment. This includes adjacent tissue, distant organ systems and even the external environment. To investigate the macroenviroment as a stem cell regulator, hair follicle stem cell interactions with 1)adjacent tissues (subcutaneous adipose tissue), 2)remote signalling (neuroendocrine signalling), and 3)the external environment (circadian rhythms) were studied. Capitalizing on recent work that highlighted inhibitory Bmp2 signalling from the subcutaneous adipose tissue to be in phase with quiescent telogen and non-propogating autonomous anagen portions of the hair cycle we investigate the post-natal ...
Its only when you look below the surface of the skin, that you begin to see the complexity of the hair follicle. Just a short distance under the skin, within a part of the hair follicle called the bulge ... there exists cells that have the potential to become neurons, muscle cells and pigment producing cells. Scientists can now easily identify these cells because they contain a protein called nestin.. For example, if these special hair follicle cells are transplanted (i.e. into a mouse) they can become blood vessels and neural tissue. Further research is needed to understand the full potential of the hair follicle.. Reference. Hoffman RM. The potential of nestin-expressing hair follicle stem cells in regenerative medicine.

Stress-induced alopecia in mice characterize premature onset of catagen accompanied by apoptosis predominantly in bulge region of hair follicle, the residence of stem cells and transit-amplifying cells. However, our understanding still elucidated which type of bulge cells have been more sensitive destroyed, if these attack would be associated with irreversible hair growth inhibition, and whether the gender difference existed or not. Therefore, we investigated stress-induced bulge region apoptosis using LRCs (BrdU) and NOVEL transit-amplifying cell marker (CD98) in chronic stress mouse model. Using anti-BrdU, anti-CD98 antibodies and TUNEL kit, triple-immunofluoresce method was performed to study hair follicle bulge region apoptosis. Statistical analysis was done by the Mann-Whitney U/Wilcoxon rank tests (SAS ver. 9.0). High levels of BrdU- and CD98-positive cells expressed in bulge region, and expression of CD98-positive cells were more expressed than that of BrdU. Intrafollicular apoptosis was ...
Hair follicles are formed during embryonic development and continue to undergo recurrent cycles of growth and regression throughout adult life. Embryonic hair follicle development is initiated by the so first dermal signal, originating from dermal fibroblasts, which leads to the formation of placodes in the embryonic epidermis at approximately E13.5. In consequence, underlying dermal condensates aggregate. Epithelial placodes are local thickenings, which define the location of the hair follicle. The placodes grow downward, giving rise to the germ by E15.5, the peg by E17.5, and the bulbous peg by E18.5. At the bulbous peg stage, epithelial cells envelope the underlying dermal mesenchymal condensate, forming the dermal papilla. The matrix is the highly proliferative leading front of the growing epithelial cells, which maintains constant contact with the dermal cells. The outer layer of the epidermal invagination is called the outer root sheath (ORS), which makes contact with the basement ...
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA), also known as common baldness, is characterized by a marked decrease in hair follicle size, which could be related to the loss of hair follicle stem or progenitor cells. To test this hypothesis, we analyzed bald and non-bald scalp from AGA individuals for the presence of hair follicle stem and progenitor cells. Cells expressing cytokeratin15 (KRT15), CD200, CD34, and integrin, α6 (ITGA6) were quantitated via flow cytometry. High levels of KRT15 expression correlated with stem cell properties of small cell size and quiescence. These KRT15hi stem cells were maintained in bald scalp samples. However, CD200hiITGA6hi and CD34hi cell populations - which both possessed a progenitor phenotype, in that they localized closely to the stem cell-rich bulge area but were larger and more proliferative than the KRT15hi stem cells - were markedly diminished. In functional assays, analogous CD200hiItga6hi cells from murine hair follicles were multipotent and generated new hair ...
The hair follicle is a dynamic organ found in mammalian skin. It resides in the dermal layer of the skin and is made up of 20 different cell types, each with distinct functions. The hair follicle regulates hair growth via a complex interaction between hormones, neuropeptides and immune cells. This complex interaction induces the hair follicle to produce different types of hair as seen on different parts of the body. For example, terminal hairs grow on the scalp and lanugo hairs are seen covering the bodies of fetuses in utero and in some new born babies. The process of hair growth occurs in distinct sequential stages. The first stage is called anagen and is the active growth phase, catagen is the resting stage, telogen is the regression of the hair follicle phase, exogen is the active shedding of hair phase and lastly kenogen is the phase between the empty hair follicle and the growth of new hair. The function of hair in humans has long been a subject of interest and continues to be an important ...
Androgenetic alopecia is the result of a deregulation of the hair growth cycle, mainly affecting men and leading to gradual hair loss.. SILAB specifically developed 2D and 3D cell and tissue models mimicking the androgenetic alopecia to identify and demonstrate the efficacy of HAIRGENYL® on the dermal papilla.. At the heart of hair follicle biology, HAIRGENYL® targets three regulators of hair growth. With HAIRGENYL®, SILAB demonstrates for the first time that increasing mitochondrial fusion boosts the capacity for energy production that is used for growth of the hair follicle [1]. Also, HAIRGENYL® corrects the abnormal expression of signaling molecules [2] and epigenetics [3] involved in androgenetic alopecia.. [1] Tested at 0.04% on human hair follicle dermal papilla cells, HAIRGENYL® stimulates the synthesis of mitofusin 1 by +52 ...
Telogen Effluvium is a common form of hair loss which happens when a bigger percentage of your hair follicles than normal, go into the resting phase and stay there which means old hair is shedding without new coming in as fast as usual. To understand the condition, youll first need some basic understanding of the hair growth cycle.. Each strand of hair go through three distinct phases. The Anlagen Phase - the growth period when the strand will grow about ½ inch every 28 days, a phase that can last for 2-5 years. The Catagen Phase - a transitional period at the end of the Anagen Phase that lasts for about 10 days. Lastly the Telogen Phase - a 30-day resting phase during which your dead hair will be released and shed.. Normally about 80-90% of your hair follicles are in the Anagen Phase. Telogen Effluvium happens when this number drops and more hair follicles go into - and stay longer in - the Telogen Phase, where no new hair starts to grow from the resting follicles. This leads to the ...
The human body has many types of stem cells that have the potential to regenerate other organs, said Dr. Ito. The methods behind communication between stem cells of hair and color during hair replacement may give us important clues to regenerate complex organs containing many different types of cells. Using genetic mouse models, researchers were able to examine how Wnt signaling pathways enabled both hair follicle stem cells and melanocyte stem cells to work together to generate hair growth and produce hair color. Research also showed the depletion (or inhibition or abnormal) Wnt signaling in hair follicle stem cells not only inhibits hair re-growth but also prevents melanocytes stem cell activation required for producing hair color. The lack of Wnt activation in melanocyte stem cells leads to depigmented or gray hair. The study raises the possibility that Wnt signaling is a key pathway for the regulation of melanocyte stem cells and shows how melanocyte behavior is associated with hair ...

Lgr4-deficient mice showed partial impairment in hair follicle development with reduced expression of Edar, Lef1, and SAA, which were essential for hair follicle morphogenesis, in the epidermis. Immunohistochemical analysis of Lgr4-/- mice epidermis using shh antibody showed reduced numbers of hair placodes, and we also detected higher phosphorylation of Smadl/5/8, which is required to suppress normal hair follicle induction. We suspected that Lgr4 might be a novel gene class regulating ...

Beta-catenin signaling is required for hair follicle development and regeneration which are involved in the resuscitation of hair follicle stem cells (HFSCs). To further characterize the role of beta-catenin in the regulation of proliferation of HFSCs, the beta-catenin expression was measured in the defined stages of hair follicle cycle and the proliferative potency was determined by using an in vitro cell growth assay. Our results showed that activation of beta-catenin correlated with HFSCs proliferation, which appeared to be mediated by the nuclear translocation of stabilized beta-catenin and the activation of responsible cell cycle genes (cyclin D1 and p21). In addition, PI3K/Akt pathway was also involved in the HFSCs proliferation, partly regulated by beta-catenin signaling pathway. These results demonstrate that beta-catenin is an essential factor in the regulation of HFSCs proliferation via PI3K/Akt pathway and might be a potential therapeutic target for the regulation of the yield of ...
BACKGROUND: Alopecia causes widespread psychological distress, but is relatively poorly controlled. The development of new treatments is hampered by the lack of suitable human hair follicle models. Although intermediate and vellus hair follicles are the main clinical targets for pharmacological therapy, terminal hair follicles are more frequently studied as smaller hair follicles are more difficult to obtain. OBJECTIVES: This investigation was designed to quantify in vivo morphological and in vitro behavioural differences in organ culture between matched intermediate and terminal hair follicles, in order to develop a new clinically relevant model system. METHODS: Microdissected terminal and intermediate hair follicles, from the same individuals, were analysed morphometrically (250 follicles; five individuals), or observed and measured over 9 days of organ culture (210 follicles; six individuals). RESULTS: Intermediate hair follicles were less pigmented and smaller, penetrating less below the ...

Follicular dermal cells possess properties that regulate induction of follicle formation, hair growth, and follicle end bulb regeneration after amputation. While the molecular basis for these developmental interactions are being uncovered, it is evident that innervation, pigmentation and vascular! sation of the follicle, together with its role as a stem cell repository, make interpretations of molecular function within the follicle, complex. This thesis examined aspects of vibrissa follicle development using immunohistochemistry, and demonstrated that segregation of the follicle dermis and epithelial differentiation were defined by lamin-A antibody. Versican, a proteoglycan recently implicated in dermal papilla induction, was absent from early dermal condensations, but its expression correlated with follicle innervation during development and the adult hair growth cycle. When lower follicle regeneration was studied with in situ hybridisation and immunohistochemistry, versican showed two distinct ...
Espada et al. (2008) addressed the question of the involvement of stem cell regulation in progeria by using Zmpste24−/− mice, which display age-related nuclear lamina defects and progeroid-like symptoms (Pendas et al., 2002). They focused on a well-characterized stem cell niche, the bulge cells of the hair follicle, where they found increased numbers of resident stem cells with decreased proliferative potential accompanied by accumulation of the unprocessed pre-lamin A and altered nuclear architecture.. Espada et al. (2008) next investigated the effects of Zmpste24 depletion on the differentiation capacity of hair follicle stem cells. They used either tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate, a tumor-promoting agent, which is known to induce both proliferation and differentiation of hair follicle stem cells, or calcium shock. Unlike the differentiation defects observed in mesenchymal stem cells expressing progerin/LAΔ50, bulge stem cell differentiation in the absence of Zmpste24 appeared normal ...
By Emma Innes. Previously scientists struggled to create enough follicle-generating stem cells to produce noticeable hair growth but have now found a solution. They implanted mice with special stem cells which regenerated into different types of skin cells and hair follicles allowing hair to grow again. More work is required before this could be used to treat humans as scientists are only able to regenerate human hair follicles, not skin cells. Both types of cells are required for hair to grow back again. A treatment for baldness that uses stem cells to regrow missing or dying follicles may soon be a reality, researchers claim.. Scientists previously struggled to create a sufficient number of follicle-generating stem cells to produce noticeable hair regrowth, but may now have a solution to this problem.. They implanted mice with special stem cells which regenerated into different types of skin cells and hair follicles.. It is hoped that this technique could, in future, result in hair regrowth in ...
Skin repair after injury is a complex process, which involves recruitment of distinct populations of undifferentiated progenitor cells from adjacent HFs into regenerating epidermis (Blanpain and Fuchs, 2009; Cotsarelis, 2006; Gurtner et al., 2008; Lau et al., 2009). The data presented in this manuscript unravel a previously unrecognized role for Lhx2 in the promotion of epidermal regeneration after wounding and demonstrate that Lhx2 operates as one of the key regulators controlling the differential response of the distinct populations of the HF stem cells to skin injury.. We show that Lhx2+ cells residing in the bulge and secondary hair germ of the HF represent the vast majority of cells that proliferate after skin injury in mice and expand in number in the HF outer root sheath in human skin (Fig. 2). This suggests a high degree of conservation of the molecular control of the wound healing response between humans and mice. Although the precise choreography of the molecular events by which Lhx2 ...
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA), also known as common baldness, is characterized by a marked decrease in hair follicle size, which could be related to the loss of hair follicle stem or progenitor cells. To test this hypothesis, we analyzed bald and non-bald scalp from AGA individuals for the presence of hair follicle stem and progenitor cells. Cells expressing cytokeratin15 (KRT15), CD200, CD34, and integrin, α6 (ITGA6) were quantitated via flow cytometry. High levels of KRT15 expression correlated with stem cell properties of small cell size and quiescence. These KRT15hi stem cells were maintained in bald scalp samples. However, CD200hiITGA6hi and CD34hi cell populations - which both possessed a progenitor phenotype, in that they localized closely to the stem cell-rich bulge area but were larger and more proliferative than the KRT15hi stem cells - were markedly diminished. In functional assays, analogous CD200hiItga6hi cells from murine hair follicles were multipotent and generated new hair ...

Human scalp hair follicles (hHF) harbour several epithelial stem (eHFSC) and progenitor cell sub-populations organised into spatially distinct niches. However, the constitutive cell cycle activity of these niches remains to be characterized in situ. Therefore, the current study has studied these characteristics of keratin 15+ (K15), CD200+ or CD34+ cells within anagen VI hHFs by immunohistomorphometry, using Ki-67 and 5-ethynyl-2′-deoxyuridine (EdU). We quantitatively demonstrate in situ the relative cell cycle inactivity of the CD200+/K15+ bulge compared to other non-bulge CD34+ and K15+ progenitor compartments and found that in each recognized eHFSC/progenitor niche, proliferation associates negatively with eHFSC-marker expression. Furthermore, we also show how prostaglandin D2 (PGD2), which is upregulated in balding scalp, differentially impacts on the proliferation of distinct eHFSC populations. Namely, 24 h organ-cultured hHFs treated with PGD2 displayed reduced Ki-67 expression and EdU
In a recent article published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (January 2009), the Department of Dermatology at the University of Lbeck in Lbeck, Germany and Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China had shown that excessive exposure to UV radiation is among the most harmful environmental influences on human skin. There have been findings that direct sunlight and ultraviolet radiation can negatively affect the growth of hair follicles.. There research was conducted on organ-cultured human anagen hair follicles in vitro and were irradiated with UVB, one of two common types of Ultra Violet light. What was observed was reduction of hair shaft elongation, premature catagen entry and reduced hair matrix keratinocyte proliferation.. When the hair follicles were exposed to UVB at lower powers, apoptotic cell death prevailed and at higher power necrotic cell death was predominant. Investigators at both universities corroborated and concluded the UVR does modify hair growth and cycle, can ...
Hair follicle anatomy. At the base of the hair follicle are sensory nerve fibers that wrap around each hair bulb. Bending the hair stimulates the nerve endings allowing a person to feel that the hair has been moved. One of the main functions of hair is to act as a sensitive touch receptor. Sebaceous glands are also associated with each hair follicle that produce an oily secretion to help condition the hair and surrounding skin.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Control of hair growth with parathyroid hormone (7-34). AU - Schilli, Marcus B.. AU - Ray, Swapna. AU - Paus, Ralf. AU - Obi-Tabot, Eliot. AU - Holick, Michael F.. PY - 1997. Y1 - 1997. N2 - Parathyroid hormone (PTH) related peptide (PTHrP) is thought to influence the proliferation and differentiation of the epidermis and hair follicle. As a means of elucidating the biologic function of PTHrP on the hair follicle, a PTHrP analog PTH (7-34), which is a PTH/PTHrP receptor antagonist, was given intraperitoneally twice daily to C57 BL/6 mice at different stages of the hair cycle. PTH (7-34) induced 99 ± 4.5% (mean ± SEM)of resting telogen hair follicles into a proliferative (anagen) state, whereas 100% of the hair follicles in the control group remained in telogen. To determine whether this pep-tide influenced the progression of the hair follicles from anagen to catagen (hair follicle maturation and regression), groups of mice that were either spontaneously in or induced to anagen ...
The major goal of regenerative medicine is to repair tissues lost to injury, aging or disease. It is interesting that in terms of tissue repair (wound healing), not all organs are equal. For instance, the skin has a remarkable capacity to rapidly heal itself whereas the heart and brain are far less capable of doing so. Understanding how the skin is so efficient at repairing itself may thus provide information on how to speed up repair in other organs. The wound-healing program in the skin is the culmination of an extensive communication between different cells in this organ including keratinocytes in the epidermis, fibroblasts in the dermis, cells in the hair follicle and immune cells that reside in the skin. How all these different cells communicate with each other to coordinate their activities to rebuild an injured tissue is a key question in the field. In particular, researchers in the IFOM-inStem Joint Research Laboratory at inStem, directed by Dr. Colin Jamora, focused on how different ...
In Notch1-deficient skin, the proliferation of epidermal keratinocytes increased progressively until a hyperplastic skin phenotype was evident,whereas follicular keratinocytes were hypoplastic, resulting in a shorter hair shaft (Fig. 1). To gain further insight into the basis of the differential response in these related keratinocyte populations, we compared the epidermal and follicular expression of selected Notch targets. The mRNA levels of Nrarp and Heyl(Krebs et al., 2001; Lamar et al., 2001) were reduced in the epidermis and in the hair follicle(Fig. 7C and Fig. 8A). Transcripts of these targets overlapped with Notch1 in the hair follicle(Fig. 8B). By contrast,epidermal Hes1 and p21Cip1 protein levels were reduced in Notch1-deficient epidermal keratinocytes(Fig. 7A,B), whereas their expression was unchanged in Notch1-deficient hair follicles(Fig. 3B and Fig. 8). Moreover, the location of expression of the Hes1 protein, a well-studied Notch target, did not overlap with that of Notch1 ...

The focus of my laboratory is the understanding of basic mechanisms that regulate the fate of stem cells within tissues. We are currently studying skin and hair follicle stem cells using cell culture and the mouse as model systems. Hair follicle stem cells reside in their niche in a quiescent state, but become rapidly activated in response to homeostatic and injury signals to regenerate the tissue. We are analyzing the physiological role of several genes implicated in different aspects of stem cell activation, self-renewal, and differentiation. Our general focus is on stem cell fate choice by epigenetic regulation, transcription regulation via specific developmental transcription factors, and chromatin modifying factors. Additionally, we recently began to explore the potential implication of our genes of interest in cancer.. ...

Formalin-fixed human small intestinal mucosa possessing villi and lymphoid follicle epithelium of Peyers patches at the mucosal surface was used to test the adherence ability of clinically isolated strains of Vibrio cholerae O1. V. cholerae O1 grown on CFA agar for approximately 3 h at 37 degrees C had various levels of cellular hemagglutinins (HAs) and manifested adherence abilities that were roughly correlated with the cellular HA levels, irrespective of cellular HA types. V. cholerae O1 adhered better to epithelium over ileal lymphoid follicles than to epithelium of jejunal or ileal villi. Cells of different morphology which constituted lymphoid follicle epithelium were almost equal targets for adherence. In contrast, V. cholerae O1 grown on CFA agar for approximately 20 h at 37 degrees C in many cases had lower levels of cellular HAs and adherence abilities. Contrary to the above observations with cellular HAs and adherence, piliation of V. cholerae O1 was rather more extensive at ...
Reporting in Nature Communications the group demonstrate that bioengineered hair follicle germ reconstructed from adult epithelial stem cells and dermal papilla cells can regenerate fully functional hair follicle and hair growth. Their bioengineered follicles showed restored hair cycles and piloerection through the rearrangement of follicular stem cells and their niches. The bioengineered hair follicle also developed the correct structures and formed proper connections with surrounding host tissues such as the epidermis, arrector pili muscle and nerve fibers. This study thus reveals the potential applications of adult tissue-derived follicular stem cells as a bioengineered organ replacement therapy ...
Expression of the ΔNLef1 transgene in the epidermis has two striking effects. The first is to reprogram lower hair follicle keratinocytes to undergo interfollicular epidermal differentiation and the second is to induce sebaceous tumours. The phenotype of our mice is a mirror image of mice overexpressing β-catenin in the epidermal basal layer (Gat et al., 1998), as illustrated schematically in Fig. 7F. Thus, activation of the pathway promotes de novo formation of hair follicles, whereas inhibition promotes conversion of hair follicles into interfollicular epidermis; activation and suppression both result in tumours, but the type of tumour is dictated by the level of β-catenin signalling activity.. The development of epidermal cysts and progressive hair loss seen in our K14ΔNLef1 mice is also seen with a further truncation of Lef1 (N-terminal 62 amino acids) (Merrill et al., 2001) and when β-catenin is deleted from the epidermis via K14 Cre-mediated recombination (Huelsken et al., 2001). This ...
Hair follicle is a sac from which hair root stems out, into which the sebaceous glands open. This is a tiny sebum-producing gland found everywhere except on the lips, palms, and in the feet (soles). A hair follicles main function involves regulation of body temperature and lubrication of the skin. Since the skin is open to air, so is the hair follicle susceptible to various bacteria, viruses, or fungi, which cause infections.. Infection of a hair follicle is known as a furuncle or a boil. The follicle then becomes inflamed and bacteria sets in causing pus. A cluster of these furuncles are called as carbuncle. These furuncles can be very painful, itching at times too, and such condition is termed as Folliculitis. Furuncles occur in the hair follicles all over the body, but they are commonly found on parts such as. ...
Cited in: The in vitro creation of a follicular structure capable of hair growth from cultured adult cells has long been an aim of researchers in hair biology. Basal outer root sheath cells (ORS) attached to the hair follicle glassy membrane (GM) were isolated and cultured, where they revealed greater replicative potential and longevity than ORS cells from plucked fibres. Hair follicles were reconstructed in vitro using the collagenous shells of rat vibrissa follicles as natural containers for 4 hair follicle cell types. Basal ORS cells were initially seeded onto the residual vibrissa GM, and cultured dermal papilla, dermal sheath and germinative epidermal cells were then added. Histology revealed that after 2 or 3 weeks in combined culture, cell interactions and tissue morphogenesis had resulted in the formation of irregular but recognizable hair fibres, produced from unusual bulb structures. To our knowledge this represents the first example of adult cell populations instigating the de novo ...

Hair follicle density influences wool fibre production, which is one of the most important traits of the Wan Strain Angora rabbit. However, molecular mechanisms regulating hair follicle density have remained elusive. In this study, hair follicle density at different body sites of Wan Strain Angora rabbits with high and low wool production (HWP and LWP) was investigated by histological analysis. Haematoxylin-eosin staining showed a higher hair follicle density in the skin of the HWP rabbits. The long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) profile was investigated by RNA sequencing, and 50 and 38 differentially expressed (DE) lncRNAs and genes, respectively, were screened between the HWP and LWP groups. A gene ontology analysis revealed that phospholipid, lipid metabolic, apoptotic, lipid biosynthetic, and lipid and fatty acid transport processes were significantly enriched. Potential functional lncRNAs that regulate lipid metabolism, amino acid synthesis, as well as the Janus kinase (JAK)-signal transducer and activator
Periods of growth (Anagen) between two and eight years are followed by a brief period, two to four weeks, in which the follicle is almost totally degraded (Catagen). The resting phase (Telogen) then begins and lasts two to four months. Shedding of the hair occurs only after the next growth cycle (Anagen) begins and a new hair shaft begins to emerge. On average 50-100 Telogen hairs shed every day. This is normal hair loss and accounts for the hair loss seen every day in the shower and with hair combing. These hairs will regrow. At any given moment, about 90 percent of these follicles are in the Anagen, or Growing phase and not more than 10 percent of the follicles are in the Resting phase (Telogen) at any time. The prolonged growth phase and the high percentage of hairs in growth phase are responsible for the long hairs on scalp.. During this phase, which lasts between two and six years depending on genetic factors and age, hair grows approximately a half-inch each month. This cycle is controlled ...
Eyebrow hair serves many important biologic and aesthetic functions. This article reviews the structure and function of the hair follicle, as well as hair follicle morphogenesis and cycling. Eyebrow hair follicles share the same basic structure as hair follicles elsewhere on the body, but are distinguished by their shorter anagen (growing) phase. Knowledge of the hair follicle structure and cycle is important for understanding the pathophysiology of alopecia, as diseases affecting the stem cell portion of the hair follicle in the bulge region may cause permanent hair loss. Furthermore, therapeutic agents that target distinct phases and hormones involved in the hair cycle may be useful for promoting hair growth.J Drugs Dermatol. 2014;13(suppl 1):s12-s16.

All hair follicles are replaced at different rates by the normal process of hair cycling. Hair growth alternates between phases of activity and rest. The growth period, called the anagen phase, lasts for two to six years. During this time, the follicle is long and deep, and produces thick, well-pigmented hair. About 90% of all scalp hairs are in the anagen phase at a given time. Anagen is followed by a brief transition known as the catagen phase, which lasts a few weeks. During this time, the base of the follicle shrivels. The resting period, or telogen phase, lasts for two to four months. In this phase, the follicle withers even further. Following the telogen phase, the next anagen phase begins, and the old hair is dislodged and falls out to make room for a new hair to begin growing in its place. ...
Myth: When you wash your hair, you promote hair loss.. Fact: While you may notice strands of hair rolling down the drain while rinsing out your hair, this is a natural part of the cycle of hair growth. Each day, we shed an average of 80 to 100 hairs. These hair follicles are later replaced when new hair follicles enter the anagen (growth) phase. Unless hair begins falling out in clumps, there is normally nothing to be concerned about. Therefore, if the hair is washed only once in five days, the 500 strands look like too much is lost. Shampooing daily is recommended, in fact, studies which document hair loss show less total loss if daily shampooing. According to some sources, washing out the testosterone in the oils of the scalp is the cause for this increased loss in the person not shampooing daily.. Myth: Only men suffer from hair loss.. Fact: It is estimated by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery that 80% of women will have noticeable hair loss by the age of 60. According ...
NuNutrients Advanced is a potent serum that works at the root of hair loss. It revitalizes hair follicles, helps reduce hair loss, and reduces inflammation, while regrowing hair by reducing the level of DHT (which can degrade hair follicles and inflame the skin). Voted a #1 trusted brand in 2013 and 2014, this effective treatment uses Biochanin A (extracted from Red Clover) to produce results that cant be achieved with other products. Biochanin A is a natural inhibitor of DHT, subdues hair loss, and modulates free radical damage to the skin and scalp. This helps the hair stay rooted much longer, while increasing the size of the hair follicle for better volume. It also uses Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 Biomimetic peptides to stimulate the extracellular matrix proteins for stronger hair anchoring. It also prevents hair from falling out and improves the scalps health, while adding more volume and increasing the size of the hair follicle. ...
Cited in: Lin We have investigated whether C57B1-6 mouse skin with all its follicles in the telogen stage of the hair cycle contains a hair-growth inhibitory activity, as opposed to skin with anagen follicles. Crude aqueous extracts of whole telogen mouse skin (TE), anagen skin (AE) or vehicle alone (V) were injected intraperitoneally into mice in which anagen had previously been induced by plucking of telogen hair follicles. Injection of TE, but not AE or V, significantly retarded the development of anagen follicles, as measured by macroscopic and quantitative microscopic hair growth parameters (skin pigmentation and thickness, appearance of trichohyaline granules) and the incorporation of tritiated thymidine into mouse skin from animals previously treated with either TE or V (skin organ culture). This inhibitory activity seemed to be localized to the epidermis and was also present in rat epidermis. We suggest that this apparently non-species-specific inhibitor present in telogen skin may play ...

Keratins from the differentiating cortical cells of the guinea-pig hair follicle have been studied by immunological and immunofluorescent procedures. Antisera were prepared to the unfractionated keratin proteins from the follicle and the specificity of these antisera examined by immunodiffusion and immunoelectrophoresis. The major follicle antigens were the low-sulphur keratins, and the antibodies were specific for these and related αkeratins. Use of the precipitin reaction as a quantitative immunoassay for follicle keratins has been demonstrated. The fluorescent antibody technique has been applied to the hair follicle and the follicle antigens have been localized by this procedure in the cytoplasm of the developing cortical cells. By this technique keratin could not be detected in the proliferative cells of the bulb region of the follicle supporting the view that keratin synthesis begins only when the cells enter the upper bulb region of the follicle.. ...
Researchers have devised a hair restoration method that can generate new human hair growth, rather than simply redistribute hair from one part of the scalp to another.
Anatomy and smooth muscle a-actin expression in hair follicles from a variety of animal species (Mink, Polecat, Meerkat, Grey squirrel and stoat) was investigated. Smooth muscle ɑ-actin expression was related to follicle activity. Expression was greatest during anagen, with a marked reduction in expression during telogen. Follicular dermal cells were cultured from the above animal species. In vitro grey squirrel dermal papilla (DP) and dermal sheath (DS) cells both expressed smooth muscle ɑ -actin. Rat dermal papilla cell in vitro aggregative behaviour was characterized, by proliferation, chemotactic and molecular studies. Aggregation behaviour in these cells was not attributed to focal proliferation. However, fluctuations in cell motility correlated with the aggregation process, with the greatest motility between subconfluent and clumped cells. Motility was terminated within the clumped cells. Furthermore, DP cells in vitro secreted molecules that enhancer! motility in subconfluent DP cells ...
The hair shaft is the solitary part of the hair follicle that fully exits the surface of the skin. The hair shaft is made up of three layers: the medulla, cortex, and the cuticle.. The medulla is described as an unsystematic and unstructured area located in the innermost region of the hair shaft and is not always present.. The cortex, in contrast to the medulla, is highly structured and organized. The cortex is made up of keratin and is responsible for giving hair its strength and durability, as well as its water uptake. The cortex also contains melanin and determines the color of hair based on the number, distribution and types of melanin granules present.. The cuticle is the hairs outer protective layer and is connected to the internal root sheath. It is a complex structure with a single molecular layer of lipids that helps hair repel water.. ...
Hair growth starts from hair follicles that reside in dermis, and abnormal hair growth is an early sign of hair follicle disease or systemic illness such as alopecia or hair loss. Therefore, identifying a target critical for dysfunctional hair follicles is fundamental to alleviating dermatologic or systemic diseases with hair abnormalities. The warm temperature-activated Ca2+-permeable transient receptor potential vanilloid 3 (TRPV3) channel protein is abundantly expressed in the skin keratinocytes, and dysfunctional TRPV3 causes human congenital Olmsted syndrome, characterized by skin diseases and alopecia, indicating an important role for TRPV3 in hair follicle development and hair growth. To validate TRPV3 as a therapeutic target, we investigated the impact of pharmacological modulation of TRPV3 on hair growth using a combination of biochemical and cell biology, immunohistochemical, whole-cell patch clamp, RNA interference, and pharmacological approaches. We found that functional TRPV3 ...

Making Follicles - hair from the laboratory | Tomorrow Today Scientists in Berlin have used human adult stem cells to develop hair follicles, from which hair then grows naturally. The treatment provides new hope for people suffering from hair loss.Only a few hair follicles would need to be taken from thepatientand used to generate as much new hair as is needed, which can then be grafted. This breakthrough has also brought the scientists a big step closer to their original research goal, which was to use lab-generated hair follicles on a chip as a substitute for animal experiments in testing creams and cosmetics. Many substances in the creams we use actually enter the body through our hair follicles rather than our skin. youtube videos,dailymotion videos,new videos,new videos 2014,2014,new videos 2013,pakistani videos,usa videos,canda videos,how to build things,how to make tea,how to make a computer,how to make a mobile,how to make leptop,how to repair,how to repair things,how to repair computer,how to

Dermal papillae (DPs) control the formation of hair shafts. In clinical settings, colchicine (CLC) induces patients hair shedding. Compared to the control, the ex vivo hair fiber elongation of organ cultured vibrissa hair follicles (HFs) declined significantly after seven days of CLC treatment. The cultured DP cells (DPCs) were used as the experimental model to study the influence of CLC on the protein dynamics of DPs. CLC could alter the morphology and down-regulate the expression of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), the marker of DPC activity, and induce IκBα phosphorylation of DPCs. The proteomic results showed that CLC modulated the expression patterns (fold > 2) of 24 identified proteins, seven down-regulated and 17 up-regulated. Most of these proteins were presumably associated with protein turnover, metabolism, structure and signal transduction. Protein-protein interactions (PPI) among these proteins, established by Search Tool for the Retrieval of Interacting Genes/Proteins (STRING) database,

For those with thinning hair, this research may hold promise. As people age, the resting phase of the hair cycle gets longer and longer such that the stem cells proliferate less frequently and hair does not grow at the rate it once did. If we could use a local and more specific inhibitor of NFATc1 than cyclosporine A to stimulate these stem cells, which are just sitting there during an extended resting phase, we might be able to promote new hair growth, says Fuchs, who is Rebecca C. Lancefield Professor at Rockefeller and an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. In a sense, by blocking NFATc1 activity in our older mice, their hair follicles were brought back to what appeared to be a more youthful state. ...
Hair follicles display a unique pattern of cyclic growth and regression involving cell proliferation, differentiation and migration. The molecular details of these processes are largely unexplored. Global expression analyses on the basis of about 20,000 genes for each morphologically distinguishable stage of the hair cycle revealed unexpected complexities of and major temporal shifts in transcriptional programs involving about 13% of all genes. In particular, hundreds of genes characterise the pattern of genomic activity during regression and resting phases; selected genes can be used to monitor hair growth in mice. We demonstrate that temporal expression patterns predict gene expression domains within the hair follicle. Expression of insulin-like growth factor binding proteins and anti-angiogenic factors is associated with the regression phase of the hair cycle.
