    Abstract  We have previously demonstrated a high level of stratifin, also known as 14-3-3 sigma (σ) in differentiated keratinocyte cell lysate and conditioned medium (CM). In this study, we asked the question of whether other 14-3-3 isoforms are expressed in human dermal fibroblasts,...

    The process of wound healing can be divided into substrate, proliferative, and remodeling phases. The basic biologic and physiologic events which transpire during these stages are examined in detail. Particular emphasis is placed on the interactions between platelets, macrophages, and other...

    TNF-α-converting enzyme (TACE) can cleave transmembrane proteins, such as TNF-α, TNF receptors, and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) ligands, to release the extracellular domains from the cell surface. Recent studies have suggested that overexpression of TACE may be associated with...

    We have used the yeast two-hybrid system to identify proteins that interact with Vav, a GDP/GTP exchange factor for the Rac-1 GTPase that plays an important role in cell signaling and oncogenic transformation. This experimental approach resulted in the isolation of Cbl-b, a signal transduction...

C. // Journal of Investigative Dermatology;Feb94, Vol. 102 Issue 2, p192 

    The binding, uptake, and degradation of epidermal growth factor (EGF) has been studied in MRC5 human fibroblasts and NCTC 2544 human keratinocytes following ultraviolet A (UVA) irradiation at doses up to 18.9 J/cm2, which are not lethal to cells under our experimental conditions. A...

    To investigate the pathophysiological role of fibroblasts in tissue metabolism, we analysed gelatin-degrading enzymes secreted from skin cells in culture. Using a gelatin-zymography method, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 was constitutively secreted from fibroblasts, whereas both MMP-2 and...

    Using a method that allowed the reconstruction of simplified living human skin in vitro, we investigated the effects of collagen texture and dermal fibroblasts on epidermal growth. Like in vivo skin, our in vitro model comprised two tissues: a dermal equivalent and an overlying epidermis. It...

  • The human papillomavirus (HPV) 16 E6 oncoprotein leads to an increase in gene expression of the angiogenic switch molecule FGF-BP in non-immortalized human keratinocytes. Stöppler, Hubert; Malerczyk, Claudius; Block, Katrin; Aigner, Achim; Czubayko, Frank // Oncogene;11/1/2001, Vol. 20 Issue 50, p7430 

    Fibroblast growth factor binding protein (FGF-BP) is a secreted protein that binds FGF-1 and FGF-2 and is involved in mobilization and activation of FGFs from the extracellular matrix. FGF-BP overexpression as well as ribozyme-mediated reduction of endogenous FGF-BP revealed that FGF-BP can be...

    The ability of psoriatic fibroblasts to stimulate growth of epidermal cells was studied by comparing the capacity of murine 3T3 cells, normal fibroblasts and psoriatic fibroblasts to act as feeder layers for cultured normal human keratinocytes. 3T3 cells consistently gave shorter times to...
