House dust mite allergens induce interleukin 33 (IL-33) synthesis and release from keratinocytes via ATP-mediated extracellular signaling

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is characterized by a disrupted epidermal barrier and is triggered or exacerbated by environmental stimuli such as house dust mite (HDM) allergens. The proinflammatory cytokine interleukin 33 (IL-33) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of AD, but how IL-33 production in keratinocytes is elicited by HDM is unknown. To that end, here we stimulated monolayer-cultured human keratinocytes and human living skin equivalents with Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus HDM extract to investigate its effects on IL-33 production from keratinocytes. The HDM extract induced intracellular expression of IL-33 and modulated its processing and maturation, triggering rapid IL-33 release from keratinocytes. Group 1 HDM allergen but not group 2 HDM allergen elicited IL-33 production. An ATP assay of keratinocyte culture supernatants revealed an acute and transient accumulation of extracellular ATP immediately after the HDM extract stimulation. Using the broad-spectrum P2 antagonist suramin, the specific purinergic receptor P2Y2 (P2RY2) antagonist AR-C118925XX, and P2RY2-specific siRNA, we discovered that t...

We examined the pattern of toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2), TLR4, TLR7, interleukin- (IL-) 10, interferon gamma (IFN-γ), and (program death ligand) PD-L1 gene expression in LST-positive reactions and paired normal-looking skin of nine infected Ibizan hound dogs. Healthy skin from ten seronegative dogs from a nonendemic area was analysed as a negative control. Immune gene expressions were examined by quantitative PCR (qPCR) analysis. LST-positive reactions presented significant upregulation of TLR2, TLR4, IL-10, IFN-γ, and PD-L1 and downregulation of TLR7 when compared with healthy skin of seronegative control dogs ...

Skin is the largest peripheral endocrine organ and functions as a hormone target and endocrine gland. A cutaneous hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA)-like axis enables the skin to respond to stress and regulates its steroidogenic activity. The pilosebaceous unit is a site for production and metabolism of a number of steroid hormones, including stress and sex hormones. This is an overview of the important role that the cutaneous HPA-like-axis plays in the pathogenesis and treatment of inflammatory pilosebaceous disorders, including acne, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, and hidradenitis suppurativa.

AbstractCanine atopic dermatitis (AD) is a very common inflammatory skin disease, but limited data are available on the genetic characterization (somatic mutations, microarrays, and genome-wide association study (GWAS)) of skin lesions in affected dogs. microRNAs are good biomarkers in inflammatory and neoplastic diseases in people. The aim of this study was to evaluate microRNA expression in the skin of atopic beagles, before and after exposure toDermatophagoides farinae. Four atopic and four unrelated age-matched healthy beagle dogs were enrolled. Total RNA was extracted from flash-frozen skin biopsies of healthy and ato...

Abstract Soft silicone's flexibility, adhesive capacity and non-toxic, non-odourous and hypoallergenic nature have made it an established material for adhesive and protective therapeutic devices. In wound care, silicone is a component of contact layer dressings for superficial wounds and silicone gel sheeting for reducing the risk of scarring, as well as of barriers for incontinence-associated dermatitis. Regarding stoma accessories, silicone is established in barrier films to prevent contact dermatitis, adhesive removers to prevent skin stripping and filler gels to prevent appliance leaks. Until recently, silicon...

Conclusion: AD lesions were characterized by expanded type 2/type 22 T-cells and inflammatory DCs, and a unique inflammatory fibroblast that may interact with immune cells to regulate lymphoid cell organization and type 2 inflammation.
