A hot new twist to hair biology: involvement of vanilloid receptor-1 (VR1/TRPV1) signaling in human hair growth control.
The vanilloid receptor-1 (VR1, or transient receptor potential vanilloid-1 receptor, TRPV1) is activated by capsaicin, the key ingredient of hot peppers. TRPV1 was originally described on sensoryExpand

Differential expression of androgen and estrogen receptor of appendix testis in patients with descended and undescended testes
Objectives:  The incidence of appendix testis has been shown to be 76% in descended and 24% in undescended testis in our previous intraoperative survey. To determine the possible role of the appendixExpand

Mitochondrial expression of the two-pore domain TASK-3 channels in malignantly transformed and non-malignant human cells
The presence of TASK-3 channels has been described in a number of healthy and malignantly transformed cells, showing mainly intracellular distribution with relatively insignificant labelling of theExpand

Inhibition of human hair follicle growth by endo‐and exocannabinoids
Recent studies strongly suggest that the cannabinoid system is a key player in cell growth control. Since the organ‐culture of human hair follicles (HF) offers an excellent, clinically relevant modelExpand

Hair cycle control by vanilloid receptor-1 (TRPV1): evidence from TRPV1 knockout mice.
TO THE EDITOR The vanilloid receptor-1 (or transient receptor potential-1, TRPV1) is a Ca2þ permeable cation channel that be stimulated by capsaicin, the pungent ingredient of chili peppers (CaterinaExpand

Inhibition of TASK-3 (KCNK9) channel biosynthesis changes cell morphology and decreases both DNA content and mitochondrial function of melanoma cells maintained in cell culture
TASK-3 channel overexpression was shown to facilitate the survival of malignantly transformed cells, possibly by providing greater hypoxia tolerance through a still unknown mechanism. Although it hasExpand

Hypotonic stress influence the membrane potential and alter the proliferation of keratinocytes in vitro
Abstract:  Keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation is strongly influenced by mechanical forces. We investigated the effect of osmotic changes in the development of HaCaT cells in culture usingExpand

Altered calcium handling following the recombinant overexpression of protein kinase C isoforms in HaCaT cells
Abstract:  Both changes in intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i) and activation of certain protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms play a crucial role in keratinocyte functions. To better understandExpand

A ‘hot’ new twist to hair biology – involvement of vanilloid receptor-1 signaling in human hair growth control
The functional role of VR1, which we and others have recently identified on several epithelial and mesenchymal human skin cell populations, was investigated in the human hair follicle (HF), as aExpand
