Practically all circulating blood cells migrate through the skin. This process is accelerated during the acute inflammatory reaction where the stimuli for diapedesis and chemotaxis of granulocytes and macrophages are reasonably well understood. Since it is generally believed that lymphocytes seen in the skin are of hematogenous rather than of local origin, the distribution of cells infiltrating the skin may reflect the percentages present in circulating blood. It is dangerous to assume that in all pathologic states tissue lymphocytes have the same distribution as those in the blood.

    Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a bioactive sphingolipid involved in several physiological processes including cell migration and differentiation. S1P signaling is mediated through five G protein-coupled receptors (S1P1-S1P5). S1P1 is crucial to the exit of T-lymphocytes from the thymus and...
