Both UVB (280-320 nm) and UVA (320-400 nm) radiation lead to an enhanced expression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in epidermal cells in various in-vitro and in-vivo models. It is demonstrated here that the expression of COX-2 is induced in artificial human epidermis exposed to simulated solar light (>290 nm). Employing filters eliminating specified regions(More)
Biological effects of ultraviolet A (UVA) irradiation have been ascribed to the photochemical generation of singlet oxygen. Not all effects described in the literature, however, are explicable solely by the generation of singlet oxygen, but rather resemble effects elicited by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Here, we show that when cells are kept in cell culture(More)
