Topical Application of Endothelin Receptor A Antagonist Attenuates Imiquimod-Induced Psoriasiform Skin Inflammation

Researchers investigated the effects of endothelin-1 (ET-1) receptor antagonist on imiquimod-induced psoriasiform dermatitis in a mouse model and found that ET-1 and endothelin A receptor axis played an important role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis.

GDNF Promotes Hair Formation and Cutaneous Wound Healing by Targeting Bulge Stem Cells

Using a Gfra1 (glial-cell-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) family receptor alpha 1) knock-in reporter mouse line, GDNF signaling was found to occur within hair bulge stem cells during the initiation of the hair cycle and early stages of hair formation after depilation.

Induction of IRAK-M in Melanoma Induces Caspase-3 Dependent Apoptosis by Reducing TRAF6 and Calpastatin Levels

Scientists showed that IRAK-M, a negative regulator of MyD88 signaling, was deficient or low in melanoma and expression levels correlated with patient survival. Inducing IRAK-M expression using genetic approaches or epigenetic modifiers initiated apoptosis by prompting its interaction with TRAF6.

Hair-Bearing Human Skin Generated Entirely from Pluripotent Stem Cells

Scientists report an organoid culture system that generated complex skin from human PSCs. They used stepwise modulation of the transforming growth factor β and fibroblast growth factor signaling pathways to co-induce cranial epithelial cells and neural crest cells within a spherical cell aggregate.
