Co-culture of human keratinocytes on post-mitotic human dermal fibroblast feeder cells: production of large amounts of interleukin 6.
A large synthesis of human IL-6 was demonstrated in co-cultures of human keratinocytes on post-mitotic human dermal fibroblast (HDF) feeder layers. Immunoreactive IL-1 beta could be detected in theExpand

Intracellular Localization of Keratinocyte Fas Ligand Explains Lack of Cytolytic Activity under Physiological Conditions*
Acquired Fas ligand (FasL)-mediated cytolytic activity of human keratinocytes causes the massive keratinocyte cell death that occurs during toxic epidermal necrolysis, a deadly adverse drug eruption.Expand

Inhibition of protease activity can lead to neurite extension in neuroblastoma cells.
Publisher Summary Neurite extension is one of the first morphological steps in neuronal differentiation. A study on the nature and the regulation of the biochemical events involved in this phenomenonExpand

Post-mitotic human dermal fibroblasts efficiently support the growth of human follicular keratinocytes.
For growth at low seeding densities, keratinocytes isolated from human tissues like epidermis or hair follicles are dependent on mesenchyme-derived feeder cells such as the 3T3-cell employed so far.Expand

Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis: role of cytotoxic T cells in pustule formation.
Extensive formation of nonfollicular sterile pustules on erythematous background combined with fever and peripheral blood leukocytosis are the characteristics of acute generalized exanthematousExpand

Differential expression of connexins during stratification of human keratinocytes.
To assess whether gap junctions and connexins change during keratinocyte differentiation, we have studied epidermal equivalents obtained in organotypic cultures of keratinocytes from the outer rootExpand
