Increased Expression of the Wnt Signalling Inhibitor Dkk-1 in Non-lesional Skin and Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells of Patients with Plaque Psoriasis
Oliver Seifert, Jan Söderman, Marita Skarstedt, Olaf Dienus, Andreas Matussek

Psoriasis is a common inflammatory skin disease characterised by abnormal keratinocyte proliferation, increased dermal angiogenesis and systemic inflammation. The cell signalling cascades provoked by Wnt proteins and their inhibitors, such as Dickkopf-1, play crucial roles to maintain homeostasis of a variety of tissues, including skin, and are also involved in angiogenesis and innate immunity.

Decrease in Chymase Activity is Associated with Increase in IL-6 Expression in Mast Cells in Atopic DermatitisInvestigative Report
Decrease in Chymase Activity is Associated with Increase in IL-6 Expression in Mast Cells in Atopic Dermatitis
Tiina Ilves, Ilkka T. Harvima

Mast cell chymase and interleukin (IL)-6 can be involved in atopic dermatitis and chymase can degrade IL-6. Our aim was therefore to study the expression of mast cell chymase and IL-6 in atopic skin using enzyme- and immunohistochemistry and to analyse their interaction in vitro. Chymase activity was significantly reduced in mast cells in skin lesions whereas the percentage of IL-6+ mast cells was ...
