Investigators provide an overview on how adipokines may integrate into the physiological conditions of the skin by introducing the cell types which are known to produce adipokines as well as the signals that target them. They also discuss data from in vivo and in vitro murine and human studies as well as genetic data on how adipokines may contribute to various aspects of the homeostasis of the skin just as to the pathogenesis of dermatological diseases.

The anti-cancer mechanism of Isoquercitrin (IQ) against human melanoma, particularly its effect on the mitochondria-mediated apoptosis, was investigated. Treatment with IQ at 25 μM concentration effectively inhibited the proliferation of SK-MEL-2 skin cancer cells while the same concentration did not exhibit cytotoxicity against human keratinocytes HaCaT.

Researchers investigated five BRAFV600E melanoma cell lines derived from drug-naïve tumor specimens to assess cell death response to encorafenib, a recently FDA-approved BRAFV600E inhibitor.
Spermidine bioactivity was employed for targeting tumor cell over-expressed polyamine transport system and for effective delivery of functional miRNA into melanoma cells.

The authors mimicked the interaction of tumor cells with liver cells and PBMC in vitro, and compared newly secreted extracellular vesicle (EV)-associated miRNAs and protein factors with those detected in melanoma patient`s plasma EV.
The authors discuss the recent advances in the field of epigenetics of non-melanoma skin cancer. Particularly, the role of DNA methylation, histone hyperacetylation and non-coding RNA such as long-chain noncoding RNAs, circular RNAs and miRNA in the disease progression are summarized.

Researchers showed the effect of calcium electroporation on immune cells, using melanoma-conditioned bone marrow-derived macrophages.
To increase the efficacy of AT1413 as a therapeutic antibody, researchers generated two different formats of bispecific T-cell engaging antibodies to both CD43s and CD3ε.
