Lipocalin-2 exacerbates psoriasiform skin inflammation by augmenting T-helper 17 response.
Tokyo, Japan. In J Dermatol, Jan 2016
Clinically, i.p. injected LCN2 exacerbated erythema and scaling in IMQ-treated murine skin compared with phosphate-buffered saline injection alone, and it augmented interleukin (IL)-17A, IL-17F, IL-22, IL-23p19, IL-12p40, CCL20, tumor necrosis factor-α, chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand (CXCL)1, CXCL2, DEFB4, DEFB14, LCN2 and S100A7 mRNA levels of IMQ-treated murine skin while it did not increase the mRNA levels of interferon-γ, IL-12p35 or CXCL10.
Joining S100 proteins and migration: for better or for worse, in sickness and in health.
Birmingham, United Kingdom. In Cell Mol Life Sci, 2014
This review summarises some of the reported regulatory functions of S100 proteins (namely S100A1, S100A2, S100A4, S100A6, S100A7, S100A8/S100A9, S100A10, S100A11, S100A12, S100B and S100P) on cellular migration and invasion, established in both culture and animal model systems and the possible mechanisms that have been proposed to be responsible.
