N2 - Although stratum corneum (SC) hydration has been primarily of concern to the cosmetic industry, it serves an important biosensor function. In murine models, not only deiminated products of filaggrin-derived amino acids (NMF) but also endogenous glycerol from circulation into the epidermis via aquaporin 3 channel and from triglyceride turnover in sebaceous glands (SG) are important determinants. We assessed here whether endogenous glycerol could also be linked to SC hydration ...
In the last decade, great advances have been made in epidermal stem cell studies at the cellular and molecular level. These studies reported various subpopulations and differentiations existing in the epidermal stem cell. Although controversies and unknown issues remain, epidermal stem cells possess an immune-privileged property in transplantation together with easy accessibility, which is favorable for future clinical application. In this review, we will summarize the biological characteristics of epidermal stem cells, and their potential in orthopedic regenerative medicine. Epidermal stem cells play a critical role via cell replacement, and demonstrate significant translational potential in the treatment of orthopedic injuries and diseases, including treatment for wound healing, peripheral nerve and spinal cord injury, and even muscle and bone remodeling.

Lethal alleles of orthodenticle (= otd) cause abnormalities in the embryonic head that reflect an early role in anterior pattern formation. In addition, otd activity is required for the development of the larval and adult epidermis. Clonal analysis of both viable and lethal alleles shows that the adult requirement for otd is restricted to medial regions of certain discs. When otd activity is reduced or removed, some medial precursor cells produce bristles and cuticle characteristic of more lateral structures. Similar medial defects are observed in the larval epidermis of embryos homozygous for lethal otd alleles. Antibodies to otd recognize a nuclear protein found at high levels in the medial region of the eye antennal discs, the leg discs, the genital discs and along the ventral midline of the ventral epidermis of the embryo. These results suggest that the otd gene product is required to specify medial cell fates in both the larval and adult epidermis.. ...
As an actively renewable tissue, changes in skin architecture are subjected to the regulation of stem cells that maintain the population of cells responsible for the formation of epidermal layers. Stems cells retain their self-renewal property and express biomarkers that are unique to this population. However, differential regulation of the biomarkers can initiate the pathway of terminal cell differentiation. Although, pockets of non-clarity in stem cell maintenance and differentiation in skin still exist, the influence of epigenetics in epidermal stem cell functions and differentiation in skin homeostasis and wound healing is clearly evident. The focus of this review is to discuss the epigenetic regulation of confirmed and probable epidermal stem cell biomarkers in epidermal stratification of normal skin and in diseased states. The role of epigenetics in wound healing, especially in diseased states of diabetes and cancer, will also be conveyed.
Integrin-linked kinase (ILK) is a β integrin adaptor protein that translates extracellular stimuli to intracellular signaling events. ILK plays a role in actin cytoskeleton dynamics and cell adhesion. The structure and function of the epidermis is highly dependent on cell-cell adhesion and cell-basement membrane interactions. The mechanisms whereby ILK contributes to epidermal integrity are poorly understood. Using a mouse model of epidermis-restricted Ilk gene inactivation, I observed that ILK loss causes abnormal morphology and presence of intra-epidermal and epidermal-dermal microblisters in embryos as early as E17.5. ILK-deficient epidermis is also characterized by abnormal localization or/and absence of adherens junctions, tight junctions and desmosomes. These are structures that maintain the barrier properties of the epidermis. Ca2+ is an important inducer of cell-cell junctions and differentiation in epidermal keratinocytes. In the absence of ILK, cultured keratinocytes are unable to properly
The present report is a part of our continuing efforts to explore the utility of the rat epidermal keratinocyte organotypic culture (ROC) as an alternative model to human skin in transdermal drug delivery and skin irritation studies of new chemical entities and formulations. The aim of the present study was to compare the stratum corneum lipid content of ROC with the corresponding material from human skin. The lipid composition was determined by thin-layer chromatography (TLC) and mass-spectrometry, and the thermal phase transitions of stratum corneum were studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). All major lipid classes of the stratum corneum were present in ROC in a similar ratio as found in human stratum corneum. Compared to human skin, the level of non-hydroxyacid-sphingosine ceramide (NS) was increased in ROC, while alpha-hydroxyacid-phytosphingosine ceramide (AP) and non-hydroxyacid-phytosphingosine ceramides (NP) were absent. Also some alterations in fatty acid profiles of ROC ...

article{5732564, abstract = {{Epithelial homeostasis within the epidermis is maintained by means of multiple cell-cell adhesion complexes such as adherens junctions, tight junctions, gap junctions, and desmosomes. These complexes co-operate in the formation and the regulation of the epidermal barrier. Disruption of the epidermal barrier through the deregulation of the above complexes is the cause behind a number of skin disorders such as psoriasis, dermatitis, keratosis, and others. During epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), epithelial cells lose their adhesive capacities and gain mesenchymal properties. ZEB transcription factors are key inducers of EMT. In order to gain a better understanding of the functional role of ZEB2 in epidermal homeostasis, we generated a mouse model with conditional overexpression of Zeb2 in the epidermis. Our analysis revealed that Zeb2 expression in the epidermis leads to hyperproliferation due to the combined downregulation of different tight junction ...
Epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin. It is a keratinized stratified squamous epithelium mostly composed of keratinocytes. Epidermis prevents water loss, is a barrier against toxic substances, withstand mechanical stress and is involved in immune responses. Kerantinocytes form this layer making cross-linked scaffolds by means of cellular junctions, like desmosomes. Epidermis may show different thickness depending on the mechanical forces it endures. For instance, it is thicker in palms and soles, but also in other areas undergoing strong mechanical frictions. Regardless of the thickness, epidermis is divided in four layers or strata that from the basal to the apical surfaces are: stratum basale or germinative, stratum spinosum, stratum granulosum and stratum corneum. In the thick epidermis, an additional stratum between the stratum corneum and stratum spinosum is observed, which is known as stratum lucidum. The stratum basale is where keratinocytes proliferation takes place. The new ...

Being Sticky. Some people do not want to put on this protective lotion, even if it is for their protection, because that lotion is too sticky. Especially, when we start to sweat when we are outdoors the cream starts to get sticky. That is going to be a really unpleasant experience to have. You are going to be quite self conscious when you have to go through such an experience.. Not Applicable to a Wet Epidermis. If we are serious about our skin care we have to keep our epidermis protected at all times. This would require us to re-apply the protective lotion if an activity we do washes it away. However, normal protective lotions are not good with wet epidermis. You cannot apply them when the skin is wet. That means you have to wait until epidermis dries to re-apply it. That will require you to spend more time than you have at the moment for the process.. Does Not Keep the Epidermis Moisturized. The main purpose of a protective lotion is keeping the epidermis protected. However, it is also ...
During cornification, the process whereby living keratinocytes are transformed into non-living corneocytes, the cell membrane is replaced by a layer of ceramides which become covalently linked to an envelope of structural proteins (the cornified envelope).[3][4] This complex surrounds cells in the stratum corneum and contributes to the skins barrier function. Corneodesmosomes (modified desmosomes) facilitate cellular adhesion by linking adjacent cells within this epidermal layer. These complexes are degraded by proteases, eventually permitting cells to be shed at the surface. Desquamation and formation of the cornified envelope are both required for the maintenance of skin homeostasis. A failure to correctly regulate these processes leads to the development of skin disorders.[3] Cells of the stratum corneum contain a dense network of keratin, a protein that helps keep the skin hydrated by preventing water evaporation. These cells can also absorb water, further aiding in hydration. In addition, ...
The mammalian epidermis develops from the non-neural embryonic single-layered ectoderm. Through a series of well-orchestrated differentiation and proliferation steps, the ectoderm forms a multilayered, stratified squamous epithelium, which is then continuously renewed during life. Activities of several transcription factors are tightly regulated to achieve a fully functional epidermis. In this regard the Sp1/Klf family of transcription factors, which contains at least 20 identified members in mammals, is emerging as an important player in epidermal biology. Members of this family can act both as transcriptional activators and repressors, and are characterised by a highly conserved C-terminal DNA-binding domain containing three zinc fingers that are similar to those found in the Drosophila protein Krüppel (Kaczynski et al., 2003). In the epidermis, three Klf members are abundantly expressed namely, Klf4/Gklf, Klf5/Iklf and Klf14/Epiprofin (Nakamura et al., 2004; Ohnishi et al., 2000; Sur et ...

The proper functioning of the stratum corneum of the skin (stratum corneum) is paramount since regulates at least three major epidermal processes: a. The antimicrobial barrier, b. Homeostasis permeability barrier and c. The integrity / consistency of the skin barrier. The pH of the skin surface is from 5 to the outer layer to about 7 at the interface with the viable epidermis. Fluctuations in the pH of the stratum corneum than normal directly associated with impaired function of epidermal processes. It has been investigated and reported as having acidic pH of the stratum corneum (4-5) discourages the growth of pathogens while favoring the natural microflora of the skin, promotes optimal function of the permeability barrier of the skin and enhances the integrity of the to reduce and regulate the activity of enzymes that cause asynochi. Characteristic is that increasing the pH of the stratum corneum by only 0.5 unit can already cause anomalies in the integrity of the skin barrier. This fact is ...
On this slide of thick skin: Identify the layers of the epidermis: stratum basale, stratum spinosum, stratum granulosum, stratum lucidum (if present), and stratum corneum. Stratum basale. This is represented by a single layer of columnar or high cuboidal cells resting on the basement membrane. Note the arrangement and shape of this layer of cells and look for mitoses. Stratum spinosum. This stratum consists of several layers of polygonal-shaped cells located immediately above the stratum basale. At high power view the delicate processes or spines that project all around the spinous cells and hence the basis for their name: prickle cells. These are desmosomes, not intercellular bridges as once believed. Stratum granulosum. In optimal areas it is seen that this stratum consists of 3-4 layers of squamous-shaped cells containing deeply basophilic granules in the cytoplasm. These are the keratohyalin granules, the first visible indication of the process of keratinization. Recall that the prime ...
The epidermis is a multi-layered organ which functions as a protective barrier from the environment. Keratinocytes form the epidermis in a tightly regulated process of terminal differentiation. Dysregulation of this process leads to hyperproliferative disease. TIG3 is a tumor suppressor in the H-rev107 family, which was identified as having elevated expression following treatment with the psoriasis drug, tazarotene. Levels of TIG3 are decreased in diseases associated with hyperproliferation like psoriasis and skin cancer. Restoration of TIG3 expression in these diseases results in a reduction of cell proliferation rate and normalization of the disease phenotype. In normal epidermis, TIG3 is expressed in the suprabasal epidermal layers and is associated with cessation of cell proliferation and activation of type I transglutaminase. Here we characterize the impact of restoring TIG3 expression in skin cancer cell lines and in normal keratinocytes. We observe that in skin cancer cells, TIG3 halts ...
The larval epidermis of Drosophila shows a stereotyped segmentally repeating pattern of cuticular structures. Mutants deficient for the wingless gene product show highly disrupted patterning of the larval cuticle. We have manipulated expression of the wg gene product to assess its role in this patterning process. We present evidence for four distinct phases of wg function in epidermal cells: (1) an early requirement in engrailed-expressing cells to establish and maintain stable expression of en, (2) a discrete period when wg and en gene products act in concert to generate positional values in the anterior portion of the ventral segment and all values of the dorsal and lateral epidermis, (3) a progressive function (dependent on prior interaction with the en-expressing cells) in conferring positional values to cells within the posterior portion of the segment, and (4) a late continuous requirement for maintaining some ventral positional values. ...
Primary mouse epidermal cells underwent spontaneous ma lignant transformation in culture. Twelve malignant epidermal cell lines were established which produced squamous cell carcinomas in syngeneic hosts. These lines were used to define criteria for recognizing transformed epidermal cells in vitro. Growth in suspension in agar, agarose, or Methocel was mini mal for 11 of the lines. All lines tested retained specific epider mal antigens (pemphigus, pemphigoid, keratin) by indirect immunofluorescence, but keratin content was reduced when quantified by radioimmunoassay. Basal activity of ornithine decarboxylase and activity induced by the tumor promoter 12O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate were variable among lines. All malignant lines as well as normal epidermal cells grew well at reduced extracellular calcium concentrations. When the extracellular calcium was elevated, normal cells ceased prolif eration, terminally differentiated, and sloughed from the culture dish, while malignant cells continued to

The epidermis is the multilayered stratified epithelium that forms the outermost layer of the skin and protects the body from dehydration, trauma and infection. Embryonic epidermal development is a multi-stage process, commencing with the formation of a single layer of basal keratinocytes derived from the surface ectoderm. Upon detachment from the basement membrane, basal keratinocytes enter a program of terminal differentiation called stratification, which is a stepwise formation of suprabasal epidermal layers characterized by expression of specific keratins at each stage. While surface ectoderm cells express Krt8 and Krt18, basal keratinocytes express Krt5 and Krt14. At approximately E9.5, the first non-basal layer called the periderm is formed. The periderm is a temporary structure that serves as the first barrier to the embryos physical environment. It exists throughout the entire stratification process and sheds off at approximately E17, when it is replaced by corneocytes. The intermediate ...
The turnover of the epidermis beginning with the progenitor cells in the basal layer to the fully differentiated corneocytes is tightly regulated by calcium. Calcium more than anything else promotes the differentiation of keratinocytes which implies the need for a calcium gradient with low concentrations in the stratum basale and high concentrations in the stratum granulosum. One of the hallmarks of skin aging is a collapse of this gradient that has a direct impact on the epidermal fitness. The rise of calcium in the stratum basale reduces cell proliferation, whereas the drop of calcium in the stratum granulosum leads to a changed composition of the cornified envelope. We showed that keratinocytes respond to the calcium induced block of cell division by a large increase of the expression of several miRNAs (hsa-mir542-5p, hsa-mir125a, hsa-mir135a-5p, hsa-mir196a-5p, hsa-mir491-5p and hsa-mir552-5p). The pitfall of this rescue mechanism is a dramatic change in gene expression which causes a further

Terminal differentiation in relation to TJs. When SG3 cells differentiate into SG2 cells, they form TJs (i) and begin to secrete lamellar granules from their apical membranes (ii). SG1 cells appear to lose their TJs (iii) and then undergo final cornification (iv). Mature corneocytes are encapsulated in the cornified envelope (dark brown; v), and their intercellular spaces are filled with lipid lamellae (brown). Corneodesmosomes (green squares; vi) mediate intercorneocyte adhesion. KLKs secreted into the extracellular space are strictly limited to the extra-TJ environment. As the pH becomes acidic in the upper layers of the SC, KLKs are released from LEKTI and proteolyze corneodesmosomes, initiating desquamation (vii). Profilaggrin is a component of keratohyalin granules in the SG, is degraded into filaggrin monomers, possibly in SG1 cells, and is further degraded into NMFs in the upper SC (viii ...

To better understand the skin and its behavior we must first look at its component parts.. The skin is composed of 3 layers: the epidermis is the outermost layer and is composed of keratinocytes or skin cells that form the bricks of our skins barrier. The functions of the epidermis are protection from environmental insults (like ultraviolet light and toxins), prevention of dryness, and immune surveillance. The base of the epidermis is called the basal layer - it contains the cells that replicate in order to replace the epidermis every month. Mixed in between keratinocytes of the epidermis are pigment cells, called melanocytes, that give skin its characteristic color. These cells become activated with ultraviolet exposure found in sunlight. The result of this activation is two-fold - 1) melanocytes produce more melanosomes, envelopes that contain brown melanin pigment, and 2) the increased transfer of these melanosomes to adjacent skin cells. The result is freckling or sun-spots that can ...
The K14E6 mouse strains has been established as a model of papilloma-induced skin cancer (7). In this model, the expression of the HPV16-E6 oncogene was directed to the basal layer of stratified epithelia which includes the skin epidermis, lens, and cervical tissue, among others (7, 31). Although E6 is virtually expressed in all stratified epithelia, it only develops spontaneous dysplasias or tumors in the skin epidermis (not in other tissues such as the cervix; refs. 32, 33), which suggests that tissue-specific factors are critical for mediating the oncogenic potential of E6 (7, 8, 33). In an attempt to explain discrepancies that occur due to tissue type, we recently reported the global gene expression differences in the skin epidermis and cervical tissue in adult K14E6 mice (33). We found that the expression of genes that participate in cell adhesion and Wnt signaling were preferentially altered in the skin epidermis compared with the cervical tissue (33). On the basis of these observations, ...

Numerous investigations have shown that the lipids of the horny layer play an important role in the epidermal barrier function. These lipids consist of sphingolipids, cholesterol, and free fatty acids in nearly equimolar proportions. If the barrier function is disturbed--i.e. in case of lipid extraction or a diet deficient of essential fatty acids--we find an increased synthesis of free fatty acids, cholesterol, and non-saponifiable lipides in the epidermis. Covering the skin with a Latex wrap prevents an increased lipid synthesis. The synthesis of cholesterol depending on the barrier function is regulated by the enzyme HMG CoA reductase. The regulation process involves both the quantity and the activity (phosphorylation) of the enzyme. Acute disruption of the permeability barrier results in an increased synthesis of cholesterol in the lower epidermis, whereas in case of chronic barrier disorders, the specific increase takes place in the upper dermis. A reduction of the cholesterol synthesis by the HMG
Recent studies in the Tumbar Laboratory have identified heterogenous domains in the interfollicular epidermis of skin based on gene expression patterns. These heterogenous domains are inhabited by two types of stem cells; slow cycling label retaining cells (LRCs) and fast cycling non-LRCs. My work has focused on identifying genetic markers for the slow cycling LRCs. I critically investigated previous microarray data obtained from LRCs and nonLRC analysis to identify genes that were preferentially expressed in LRC domains. Two new potential markers of epidermal LRCs have been identified, however, based on immunofluorescent studies, these two genes were not found to overlap with the strongest LRCs. Instead they overlapped with LRCs that had partially reduced label. These gene expression domains are also spatiotemporally dynamic. Therefore, these midrange LRCs may indicate a third epidermal stem cell population. This opens the way to further functional studies to elucidate the role of gene ...

Skin barrier function resides primarily within the stratum corneum (SC), the top layer of the epidermis. Although the SC is only 7-35 μm thick [1, 2], it plays a vital role in forming a protective barrier and helps to prevent percutaneous entry of harmful pathogens into the body [3, 4]. In addition to serving as a physical barrier, the SC has other important functions, including engaging in thermoregulation, gas exchange, and maintenance of proper hydration. The SC also serves important functions in innate immunity [5] and its slightly acidic pH [6] provides additional protection against pathogens.. Maintenance of the skin barrier is essential for survival [1]. This is especially true for neonates and infants because their skin differs from mature adult skin in structure, function, and composition [1, 2, 7] and is particularly susceptible to infection [3]. During the late fetal period (20 weeks to birth), skin becomes functional and develops a protective barrier [8]. Although full-term infants ...
Phosphoprotein signalling pathways have been intensively studied in vitro, yet their role in regulating tissue homeostasis is not fully understood. In the skin, interfollicular keratinocytes differentiate over approximately 2 weeks as they traverse the epidermis. The extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) branch of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway has been implicated in this process. Therefore, we examined ERK-MAPK activity within human epidermal keratinocytes in situ. We used confocal microscopy and immunofluorescence labelling to measure the relative abundances of Raf-1, MEK1/2 and ERK1/2, and their phosphorylated (active) forms within three human skin samples. Additionally, we measured the abundance of selected proteins thought to modulate ERK-MAPK activity, including calmodulin, β1 integrin and stratifin (14-3-3σ); and of transcription factors known to act as effectors of ERK1/2, including the AP-1 components Jun-B, Fra2 and c-Fos. Imaging was performed with sufficient
Dry skin, at its worst, can be known as Dermatitis, Ichthyosis, or Eczema. Those topics are discussed elsewhere if appropriate. This section is just for mild to moderate dryness.. Dry skin is recognizable by its tight, rough feel and its dull appearance; it is apparent in its upper-most layer, the epidermis. Roughly 80% of the bodys epidermal cells are made of keratinocytes, composed of soft protein keratin. The epidermal cells are born in the lowest layer of the epidermis, the basal layer. As these cells rise toward the outer layer, they undergo many changes, including the increase in the amount of keratin they produce. By the time the cells reach the top, they are no longer alive, and are formed entirely of keratin.. Keratin needs water to keep it pliable and healthy; when there is not enough water, the keratin crumbles and the cells cant stay together. This is what happens when the skin becomes dry. When the water content of your skin drops below ten percent, it gets rough, chaps, and ...

As an example, gmnn was ectopically induced in the ventral epidermis by mouse Foxd4 but not by the lineage tracer (nbgal). (b) High magnification image of injected embryos. Ectopic expression of either frog foxd4l1 or mouse Foxd4 leads to induction of gmnn, zic2, and sox11 expression (blue label) in the ventral epidermis within the injected cell clone (pink nuclei). (c) The percentage of embryos that show ectopic induction of each neural gene in the ventral epidermis after injection of frog foxd4l1 (green bars) or mouse Foxd4 (blue bars; n for each experiment noted on graph). (d) There is a high ...
Voltages across various glabrous (and gland-free) regions of cavy skin range from 30 to 100 mV, inside positive; across hairy ones, 0 to 10 mV. (moreover, hairy areas also tend to maintain lower transcutaneous voltages in man.) When an incision is made through the glabrous epidermis of the cavy, a microampere flows through each millimeter of the cuts edge. These wound currents generate lateral, intraepidermal voltage gradients or fields of about 100-200 mV/mm near the cut; fields which decline with distance from the cut with a space constant of 0.3-0.4 mm. It is deduced from these data that the epidermis near a cut drives up to 300 microA/cm2 across itself; moreover, these currents and potentials can be grossly, rapidly, and (to some extent) reversibly reduced by amiloride. It is concluded that the hair and gland-free skin of cavies has a battery comparable in power and character to that of frogs; but it is suggested that this mammalian battery may primarily subserve epidermal wound healing ...

Claudin-1 (CLDN1) is a structural tight junction (TJ) protein and is expressed in differentiating keratinocytes and Langerhans cells in the epidermis. Our objective was to identify immunoreactive CLDN1 in human epidermal Langerhans cells and to examine the pattern of epidermal Langerhans cells in genetic human CLDN1 deficiency [neonatal ichthyosis, sclerosing cholangitis (NISCH) syndrome]. Epidermal cells from healthy human skin labelled with CLDN1-specific antibodies were analysed by confocal laser immunofluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry. Skin biopsy sections of two patients with NISCH syndrome were stained with an antibody to CD1a expressed on epidermal Langerhans cells. Epidermal Langerhans cells and a subpopulation of keratinocytes from healthy skin were positive for CLDN1. The gross number and distribution of epidermal Langerhans cells of two patients with molecularly confirmed NISCH syndrome, however, was not grossly altered. Therefore, CLDN1 is unlikely to play a critical role in ...

Identification of the molecular nature of the barrier is still under investigation, with the consensus that a protein lipid layer, which is located in the top layers of the epidermis and TJs, plays an essential role in development of the skin barrier function (Tsuruta et al., 2002). Evidence that cornified envelope assembly is necessary for barrier development in skin is obtained from the study of transglutaminase 1-deficient mice that lack confirmed envelopes. These mice suffer from water loss, resulting in neonatal lethality (Matsuki et al., 1998). Alterations of corneocyte morphology have also been described in various mouse models with epidermal permeability barrier defects ranging from near absence in transglutaminase 1-deficient mice (Matsuki et al., 1998) to irregular shaped corneocytes (e.g., Klf4−/− mice; Segre et al., 1999). Our corneocyte phenotype mostly resembled that of matriptase/MT-SP1-deficient mice, a member of the type II transmembrane serine protease family (List et al., ...
The epidermis of roots is composed of hair and non-hair cells. Patterning of this epidermis results from spatially regulated differentiation of these cell types. Root epidermal development in vascular plants may be divided into three broad groups based on the mode of hair development; Type 1: any cell in the epidermis can form a tool hair; Type 2: the smaller product of an asymmetric cell division forms a root hair; Type 3: the epidermis is organized into discrete files of hair and non- hair cells. The Arabidopsis root epidermis is composed of discrete files of hair and non-hair cells (Type 3). Genetic trod physiological evidence indicates that ethylene is a positive regulator of hair cell development Genes with opposite roles in the development of hair cells in the shoot (trichomes) and hair cells in the root have been identified. Plants with presumptive loss of function alleles in the TRANSPARENT TESTA GLABRA (TTG) or GLABRA2 (GL2) genes are devoid of trichomes indicating that these genes are positive

This system includes antigen-presenting Langerhans cells, dermal and epidermal T lymphocytes, cytokine-producing keratinocytes, and draining peripheral lymph nodes. In patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1), this surveillance system appears to be compromised, as evidenced by a reduction in the epidermal Langerhans cell population. Because human epidermal Langerhans cell express surface-bound CD4 antigens, HLA-DR antigens, and Fc-IgG receptors, all of which are involved in HIV-1 binding to, or entry into, the target cell, the reduction in Langerhans cells in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome ...
During gestation the epidermis develops from a single layer of ectoderm into a layer of keratinocytes overlaid by a layer of periderm; this is followed by a progressive increase in the number of layers of keratinocytes, until finally the distinct granular and cornified layers characteristic of mature epidermis are formed. As part of our investigation into the function of the peanut lectin-binding glycoproteins of cultured human keratinocytes, we have examined their expression at different stages of human epidermal development. We found that the onset of expression of the glycoproteins coincided with the transition from a two- to a three-layered epidermis, both in vivo and in organ culture. In adult epidermis, the patterns of binding of peanut lectin and Limax flavus lectin are complementary, with peanut binding more strongly to suprabasal keratinocytes and Limax flavus lectin binding more strongly to cells in the basal layer. We found that the complementary pattern of binding of the two lectins ...

Consecutive changes in gene expression have been characterized in such conditions and were interestingly found to be similar to transcriptional changes observed in keratinocytes of atopic dermatitis (AD) patients. As an inflammatory skin disease, AD notably results in altered histology of the epidermis associated with a defective epidermal barrier. To further investigate whether the activation of keratinocytes obtained by cholesterol depletion could be responsible for some epidermal alterations ...

Skin is the first line of defense against infection. When this protective barrier is breached, the immune system must jump into action to fight the prospective invader. However, the nature of a protective immune response depends on the type of stimulus: Pathogens elicit activation of host-defense mechanisms, whereas steady-state conditions may induce immune suppression and tolerance. How the skin initiates immunity to pathogens, but tolerance to benign antigens, is not well understood. Now, a study of human epidermal Langerhans cells (LCs) by Seneschal et al. reveals that these specialized dendritic cells control skin resident memory T lymphocyte responses, directing either immunity or tolerance.. Human skin contains billions of resident memory T lymphocytes capable of rapidly responding to antigens penetrating the skin surface. Seneschal et al. report that human LCs could induce either T cell tolerance or activation of T cell-mediated host defense in these skin resident cells. During steady ...
We have shown that E4F1 KO in the epidermis leads to neonatal lethality resulting from defects in skin homeostasis. E4F1 depletion in E4F1 KO;K5-Cre neonates and E4F1−/flox;RERT adult skin led to rapid thickening of the IFE with increased numbers of proliferative basal keratinocytes. This hyperplasia was transient, and was followed by severe disorganization and an almost complete loss of viable epithelial cell layers in the IFE and HFs. In addition, perturbations of epidermal differentiation were observed in both E4F1 KO models. Strikingly, E4F1 depletion in murine or human primary keratinocytes in culture did not recapitulate the overproliferation observed in skin sections, ruling out the possibility that hyperplasia originates from an intrinsic increase in the proliferative capacity of E4F1 KO TAC keratinocytes. As has been described for other gene deficiencies in epidermis (20, 22), our data suggest that the E4F1 KO phenotypes resulted from cell-autonomous perturbations in resident stem ...
Environmental factors that adversely impact on skin barrier integrity enhance AD risk and severity. Mechanical damage, repetitive scratching, use of detergents, humidity, exposure to exogenous proteases, and air pollution also negatively impact FLG expression (78).. FLG-deficient mouse models exhibit enhanced percutaneous microbial and allergen penetration (79, 80). Similarly, examination of human skin samples determined that FLG mutations impair epidermal permeability barrier function (81). Knockdown of FLG expression in keratinocytes led to increased permeability in human keratinocyte organotypic cultures (82). Epithelial damage leads to innate immune activation, including release of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines by keratinocytes (83), and activation of antigen presentation by skin-resident Langerhans cells and dermal DCs (84).. Electron microscopy studies illustrate that changes in epidermal FLG expression converge on the lamellar body secretory system to provoke skin barrier ...
Previous studies have shown that Meis1 plays an important role in blood development and vascular homeostasis, and can induce blood cancers, such as leukemia. However, its role in epithelia remains largely unknown. Here, we uncover two roles for Meis1 in the epidermis: as a critical regulator of epidermal homeostasis in normal tissues and as a proto-oncogenic factor in neoplastic tissues. In normal epidermis, we show that Meis1 is predominantly expressed in the bulge region of the hair follicles where multipotent adult stem cells reside, and that the number of these stem cells is reduced when Meis1 is deleted in the epidermal tissue of mice. Mice with epidermal deletion of Meis1 developed significantly fewer DMBA/TPA-induced benign and malignant tumors compared with wild-type mice, suggesting that Meis1 plays a role in both tumor development and malignant progression. This is consistent with the observation that Meis1 expression increases as tumors progress from benign papillomas to malignant carcinomas.
Besides cleaning, moisturizing is the most crucial point we are able to do for the skin. Agents develop a buffer between skin and the environment that always harms it. This protective layer also permits epidermis to maintain a ample amount of humidity, avoiding it from becoming dry and cracked. Moisturized skin is healthy skin and everyone requires notice. Epidermis that is not often moist tends to develop creases, making actually a young person look elderly.. People with dry or already ageing skin benefit many from a typical treatment routine but actually people who have greasy skin must moisturize. An oil-free moisturizer prevents excess gas from accumulating on oil-prone skin while preserving moisture needed to keep epidermis delicate and supple. Following cleaning their epidermis, everybody else should use a treatment cream. Make-up may be used at the top and the moisturizer will hold it in place. An excellent moisturizer also shields epidermis from UV rays that can cause rapid aging. ...
Skin is composed of the epidermis and the dermis. Below these layers lies the hypodermis, which is not usually classified as a layer of skin. The outermost epidermis is made up of stratified squamous epithelium with an underlying basement membrane. It contains no blood vessels, and is nourished by diffusion from the dermis. The main type of cells which make up the epidermis are keratinocytes, with melanocytes and Langerhans cells also present. The epidermis can be further subdivided into the following strata (beginning with the outermost layer): corneum, lucidum, granulosum, spinosum, basale. Cells are formed through mitosis at the innermost layers. They move up the strata changing shape and composition as they differentiate and become filled with keratin. They eventually reach the corneum and become sloughed off. This process is called keratinization and takes place within about 30 days. Blood capillaries are found beneath the epidermis, and are linked to an arteriole and a venule. Arterial ...

Recently it has been shown to influence several functions of keratinocytes, including HLA-DR expression, chemotaxis and proliferation by binding to a specific receptor. Since psoriasis vulgaris is characterized by epidermal hyperproliferation and infiltration of inflammatory cells, we investigated the expression of IL-8 and its receptor in normal and psoriatic epidermis using semiquantitative reverse-transcriptase-PCR. In addition the mRNA levels of the protooncogenes c-ras, c-raf, c-myc and HER-2 were also investigated as potential growth promoting stimuli in psoriatic epidermis. IL-8 mRNA was only detected in lesional psoriatic epidermis, ...

Primary skin diseases that principally affect the epidermis may be categorized as either a dermatitis or a papulosquamous disorder. Dermatitis commonly denotes inflammation of the epidermis. Eczema generically denotes edema within the epidermis. Many primary dermatitides are eczematous in nature, although the term eczema is often misused interchangeably for atopic dermatitis. In its mildest or chronic form, edema is seen histopathologically as prominent, toothlike interconnections between keratinocytes (spongiosis). With more intracellular fluid accumulation, intraepidermal vesicles are formed. Vesicles are often subclinical in subacute or chronic eczemas where edema is mild but present as grossly evident vesicles and bullae in acute eczemas. Papulosquamous eruptions are characterized by the presence of erythematous papules or plaques with overlying scale. While eczematous processes clinically manifest with weeping or crusting, papulosquamous disorders are associated with little to no edema and ...

Title: ERKs activation and calcium signaling are both required for VEGF induction by vanadium in mouse epidermal Cl41 cells.. Authors: Li, Jingxia; Tong, Qiangsong; Shi, Xianglin; Costa, Max; Huang, Chuanshu. Published In Mol Cell Biochem, (2005 Nov). Abstract: The previous studies have demonstrated that vanadium exposure can cause a variety of biological effects. However, the mechanisms involved in the biological effects caused by vanadium are not well understood. Our previous studies have shown that exposure of mouse epidermal Cl 41 cells to vanadate stimulated the phosphorylation of both ERKs and p38K, and calcium signaling leading NFAT activation. In view of the evidence that ERKs and p38 kinase contribute to VEGF induction, we investigated in the present study the potential roles of ERKs, p38K, and calcium signaling in VEGF induction caused by vanadium exposure. Exposure of Cl 41 cells to vanadium led to VEGF induction in both time- and dose-dependent manners. Pre-treatment of Cl 41 cells ...
95% of epidermis is represented by keratinocytes; other cells to be found in epidermis are melanocytes, Merkel cells (touch cells with possible neuroendocrine role) and Langerhans cells (antigen-presenting cells). Keratinocytes proliferate in the stratum germinativum and further move up to more outside layers when they undergo cell differentiation; they change the shape and composition. Stratum corneum consists of cells without nuclei. During these changes keratinocytes form desmosomes (junctions between cells), they produce and secrete lipids as well as keratin which form extracellular matrix. Through desquamation keratinocytes from the outermost layer (stratum corneum) shed from the surface. Epidermis does not have blood vessels; nourishment comes via diffusion from capillaries from the upper dermis. Epidermal appendages (hair follicles, sebaceous and sweat glands) play an important role in re-epithelialization after epidermis is destroyed as they are the source of the epithelial cells ...

In this study, we showed novel trafficking regulation by NUP62 in human SCCs. Importantly, NUP62 regulated ΔNp63α nuclear transport to prevent epidermal differentiation in SCCs. ROCK pathway inhibited the ΔNp63α nuclear transport by reducing interaction between ΔNp63α and NUP62 through the phosphorylation of the FG domain of NUP62.. Heterogeneity of NPC and the cell type‐specific properties of some pore components have been reviewed [42]. Based on in silico analysis of NUPs transcripts across normal tissues, NUP62 expression levels were prominent in stratified epithelia tissues. We further determined that basal progenitor cells tend to express NUP62 in human skin tissue. In addition, SCC showed excessive levels of NUP62 compared to healthy tissues. We validated the function of NUP62 to maintain proliferative activity and suppress differentiation of SCCs, highlighting the cell type‐specific role of NUP62 to regulate the cellular state of epidermal progenitor cells. Interestingly, Toda ...
Patterning of the Drosophila ventral epidermis is a tractable model for understanding the role of signalling pathways in development. Interplay between Wingless and EGFR signalling determines the segmentally repeated pattern of alternating denticle belts and smooth cuticle: spitz group genes, which encode factors that stimulate EGFR signalling, induce the denticle fate, while Wingless signalling antagonizes the effect of EGFR signalling, allowing cells to adopt the smooth-cuticle fate. Medial fusion of denticle belts is also a hallmark of spitz group genes, yet its underlying cause is unknown. We have studied this phenotype and discovered a new function for EGFR signalling in epidermal patterning. Smooth-cuticle cells, which are receiving Wingless signalling, are nevertheless dependent on EGFR signalling for survival. Reducing EGFR signalling results in apoptosis of smooth-cuticle cells between stages 12 and 14, bringing adjacent denticle regions together to result in denticle belt fusions by stage 15.

In the present study, we have characterized the propagation of Ca2+ waves mediated by extracellular ATP in cultured NHEKs (normal human epidermal keratinocytes) that were co-cultured with mouse DRG (dorsal root ganglion) neurons. Pharmacological characterization showed that NHEKs express functional metabotropic P2Y2 receptors. When a cell was gently stimulated with a glass pipette, an increase in [Ca2+]i (intracellular Ca2+ concentration) was observed, followed by the induction of propagating Ca2+ waves in neighbouring cells in an extracellular ATP-dependent manner. Using an ATP-imaging technique, the release and ...
The skin epidermis is what allows us to survive as terrestrial beings. It acts as a saran wrap seal to our body surface, excluding microbes and retaining body fluids. Subjected constantly to mechanical stress, epidermal cells protect themselves by producing an elaborate cytoskeleton that connects to specialized cellular junctions and enables the cells to form adhesive sheets of resilient tissue. The epidermis also produces protective appendages, such as feathers in birds, scales in fishes and hair follicles in mammals. Human skin has evolved to have sweat glands, enabling us to regulate body temperature and survive over broader climates than other mammals. To withstand normal wear and tear, epidermis constantly self-renews, making it one of the bodys main reservoirs of stem cells. When the skins barrier is breached in injury, epidermal stem cells must also communicate with resident immune cells to repair the damaged tissue and prevent infection. Finally, at the bodys surface, skin stem cells ...

The skins permeability barrier consists of stacked lipid sheets of splayed ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids, positioned intercellularly in the stratum corneum. We report here on the early stage of skin barrier formation taking place inside the tubuloreticular system in the secretory cells of the topmost viable epidermis and in the intercellular space between viable epidermis and stratum corneum. The barrier formation process was analysed in situ in its near-native state, using cryo-EM combined with molecular dynamics modeling and EM simulation. Stacks of lamellae appear towards the periphery of the tubuloreticular system and they are closely associated with granular regions. Only models based on a bicontinuous cubic phase organization proved compatible with the granular cryo-EM patterns. Only models based on a dehydrated lamellar phase organization agreed with the lamellar cryo-EM patterns. The data support that human skin barrier formation takes place via a cubic to lamellar lipid ...
According to the new EU Medical Devices (MDR) legislation coming into effect in 2017, manufactures will have to comply with higher standards of quality and safety for medical devices in order to meet common safety concerns regarding such products. Metal alloys are extensively used in dentistry and medicine (e.g. orthopedic surgery and cardiology) even though clinical experience suggests that many metals are sensitizers. The aim of this study was to further test the applicability domain of the in vitro reconstructed human epidermis (RhE) IL-18 assay developed to identify contact allergens and in doing so: i) determine whether different metal salts, representing leachables from metal alloys used in medical devices, could be correctly labelled and classified; and ii) assess the ability of different salts for the same metal to penetrate the skin stratum corneum. Twenty eight chemicals including 15 metal salts were topically exposed to RhE. Nickel, chrome, gold, palladium were each tested in two ...

A new arrangement of proteins and lipids of stratum corneum (SC) cornified envelope (CE) is proposed. The chemical analysis of CE revealed the presence of free fatty acids (FFA), ceramides (Cer), and important percentages of glutamic acid/glutamine (Glx) and serine (Ser) residues. The molecular structure of these components suggests the existence of covalent links not only between Cer and Glx but also between FFA and Ser. The protein distribution of extracellular surface of CE, i.e., the proteins that could be involved in the bonds with lipids, was studied using post- and preembedding immunolabeling electron microscopy. Some loricrin (protein rich in Ser) was detected in the outermost part of the CE protein layer. The external arrangement of some domains of this protein may give rise to form linkages with FFA, yielding further insight into the CE arrangement in which Cer-Glx bonds and FFA-Ser bonds would be involved. Although the importance of fatty acids in the cohesion and barrier function of ...
Identification of low-abundance, low-molecular-weight native peptides using non-tryptic plasma has long remained an unmet challenge, leaving potential bioactive/biomarker peptides undiscovered. We have succeeded in efficiently removing high-abundance plasma proteins to enrich and comprehensively identify low-molecular-weight native peptides using mass spectrometry. Native peptide sequences were chemically synthesized and subsequent functional analyses resulted in the discovery of three novel bioactive polypeptides derived from an epidermal differentiation marker protein, suprabasin. SBSN_HUMAN[279-295] potently suppressed food/water intake and induced locomotor activity when injected intraperitoneally, while SBSN_HUMAN[225-237] and SBSN_HUMAN[243-259] stimulated the expression of proinflammatory cytokines via activation of NF-κB signaling in vascular cells. SBSN_HUMAN[225-237] and SBSN_HUMAN[279-295] immunoreactivities were present in almost all human organs analyzed, while immunoreactive ...

BACKGROUND: Both keratinocytes and T-cells are crucial players in cutaneous immune responses. We hypothesized that direct interactions between keratinocytes and T-cell subsets could shape the nature or strength of the local immune response. OBJECTIVE: We investigated direct interactions between keratinocytes and T-cell subsets, focused on keratinocyte chemokine production and T-cell phenotype and cytokine production. METHODS: A newly developed in vitro serum free co-culture model using primary keratinocytes and T-cells subsets from healthy human donors was used. Keratinocyte chemokine production was analyzed with luminex, T-cell phenotype and cytokine production were analyzed with flow cytometry. RESULTS: Our data show that upon co-culture with CD4(pos) or CD8(pos) T-cells primary human keratinocytes increased production of functionally active chemokines CCL2, CCL20 and CXCL10 and that regulatory T-cells did not regulate keratinocyte chemokine production. Next to that, we found that ...
The reconstituted human epidermis model SkinEthic was used to evaluate the phototoxicity of topically applied chemicals. For comparison with published data,
Keratinocytes, the predominant cell type of the epidermis, migrate to reinstate the epithelial barrier during wound healing. Mechanical cues are known to regulate keratinocyte re-epithelialization and wound healing however, the underlying molecular transducers and biophysical mechanisms remain elusive. Here, we show through molecular, cellular and organismal studies that the mechanically-activated ion channel PIEZO1 regulates keratinocyte migration and wound healing. Epidermal-specific Piezo1 knockout mice exhibited faster wound closure while gain-of-function mice displayed slower wound closure compared to littermate controls. By imaging the spatiotemporal localization dynamics of endogenous PIEZO1 channels we find that channel enrichment at some regions of the wound edge induces a localized cellular retraction that slows keratinocyte collective migration. In migrating single keratinocytes, PIEZO1 is enriched at the rear of the cell, where maximal retraction occurs, and we find that chemical ...

cMYC (MYC) is a potent oncoprotein that is subject to post-translational modifications that affect its stability and activity. Here, we show that Serine 62 phosphorylation, which increases MYC stability and oncogenic activity, is elevated while Threonine 58 phosphorylation, which targets MYC for degradation, is decreased in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The oncogenic role of MYC in the development of SCC is unclear since studies have shown in normal skin that wild-type MYC overexpression can drive loss of stem cells and epidermal differentiation. To investigate whether and how altered MYC phosphorylation might affect SCC development, progression, and metastasis, we generated mice with inducible expression of MYC(WT) or MYC(T58A) in the basal layer of the skin epidermis. In the T58A mutant, MYC is stabilized with constitutive S62 phosphorylation. When challenged with DMBA/TPA-mediated carcinogenesis, MYC(T58A) mice had accelerated development of papillomas, increased conversion to malignant lesions, and
Thus, it appears that two chemokines, MIP-3α and SDF-1α, are produced constitutively by human keratinocytes, and therefore could both be involved in LC homing to the epidermis. Our findings that SDF-1α does not attract LC precursors (Fig. 1 C) and that these cells also fail to express CXCR4 on their surface (Fig. 6 A) speak against a role of SDF-1α in LC homing. Since ex vivo-purified LCs express CCR2 transcripts (Fig. 5 B), one could argue that this receptor is involved in the attraction of LCs into the epidermis. This is unlikely because (a) resting keratinocytes do not express the CCR2 ligand MCP-1 at the protein level ((33); Fig. 7 E), and (b) LC precursors do not express CCR2 on their surface (Fig. 6 A), and do not migrate in response to MCP-1 (Fig. 1 B). In this context, it is noteworthy that mice genetically manipulated to express MCP-1 in the epidermis have close to normal LC numbers while accumulating dermal DCs and macrophage-like cells (34).. In conclusion, among all the ...

The epidermis, being relatively drier, initially offers greater resistance to DC flow. The resistance is generally decreased by sweat and moisture or in areas where follicles pierce the epidermis and increased where the epidermis is thicker (eg, on the acral surfaces of the skin). When a DC potential of more than 10 V is established across the skin, the epidermis begins to lose its structural integrity and its resistance further decreases. In a corollary to this property, an electrical current that passes through an initially resistant barrier (eg, epidermis) causes a thermal burn at the area of increased resistance. The epidermal barrier is effectively removed when the skin is immersed in a fluid conducting medium such as water. With a fluid conductor, the flow of current is spread over a broader contact surface, and the water and its attendant ions can more effectively reach portions of the epidermis that are better conductors. For this reason, burns are not seen on the surface of skin ...
