    Pig-a , an X-linked gene, is a key component of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor biosynthesis based on the fact that lack of this gene causes deficiencies of hundreds of GPI-anchored proteins. We previously demonstrated an essential role for the GPI-anchor in keratinocyte...

    Keratinocytes represent the main constituents of the epidermis and have been found to play a regulatory role in a variety of inflammatory skin diseases. The functional activity of keratinocytes is highly heterogeneous, and depends on the cell localization in the epidermal architecture, and the...

    The behavior of the keratinocyte during the initial stages of cutaneous wound repair has been the subject of intense investigation. Most of these studies have focused on the lateral edges of wounds as the source of activated keratinocytes. Less attention has been directed towards elucidating the...

    Autoantibodies in patients with autoimmune bullous skin diseases, such as pemphigus or bullous pemphigoid are of diagnostic value and might play a part in the pathogenic scenario. In this study we present five patients with erythematous plaques, subepidermal blister formation of the skin, and...

    Owing to its ability to induce growth arrest and differentiation of keratinocytes, 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 and its analogs are useful for the treatment of hyperproliferative skin diseases, such as psoriasis vulgaris. It has been implicated that the 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 -induced...

    The death ligand CD95L (Fas/Apo-1–ligand) has been viewed as a proapoptotic molecule involved in the pathogenesis of T cell-mediated skin diseases including eczema. In the presence of inhibitors of caspases, CD95L induces proinflammatory genes in keratinocytes. This more pleiotropic...
