OBJECTIVE To evaluate the benefits of conditioned medium of Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSC-CM) on wound healing after fractional carbon dioxide laser resurfacing (FxCR) on human skin. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nineteen subjects were treated with FxCR on the bilateral inner arms. ADSC-CM was applied on FxCR site of one randomly selected arm. Transepidermal(More)
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are an important factor in the development of skin photodamage after ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation. A flavonoid antioxidant, baicalin, can selectively neutralize super-oxide anion (O(2)(-)) while having no significant effect on (•)OH. Fibroblasts are a key component of skin dermis. In the present study, we investigated the(More)
Here we report two unrelated Chinese families with congenital missing teeth inherited in an X-linked manner. We mapped the affected locus to chromosome Xp11-Xq21 in one family. In the defined region, both families were found to have novel missense mutations in the ectodysplasin-A (EDA) gene. The mutation of c.947A>G caused the D316G substitution of the EDA(More)
To investigate whether palmitic acid can be responsible for the induction of inflammatory processes, HaCaT keratinocytes were treated with palmitic acid at pathophysiologically relevant concentrations. Secretion levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor- α (TNF- α), interleukin-1 β (IL-1 β), NF- κ B nuclear translocation, NF- κ B activation,(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the effects of ultraviolet B (UVB) irradiation on microRNA (miRNA) expression in normal human keratinocytes. Global miRNA expression profiles of primary cultures of normal human keratinocytes 4 and 24 h postirradiation were studied using miRNA microarray with further confirmation by real-time PCR. We found that upon 30 or(More)
BACKGROUND Solar ultraviolet (UV) irradiation, in particular UVB with a wavelength range between 290 and 320 nm, induces different hazardous effects on the skin, including sunburn, photoaging and cancer. Protection against sun-induced damage is therefore a highly desirable goal. Chemoprevention is being investigated as a potential approach for the(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was aimed to evaluate the anti-photoaging effects of baicalin on Ultraviolet B (UVB)-induced photoaging in the dorsal skin of hairless mice and premature senescence in human dermal fibroblasts. METHODS We established in vivo and in vitro photoaging models by repeated exposures to UVB irradiation. By HE staining, masson staining,(More)
Exposure to ultraviolet B (UVB) irradiation is a major risk factor for the development of skin cancer. Therefore, it is important to identify agents that can offer protection against UVB-caused DNA damage. Photocarcinogenesis is caused largely by mutations at the sites of incorrectly repaired DNA photoproducts, of which the most common are the cyclobutane(More)
BACKGROUND MiRNAs remain at a constant level under physiological conditions. However, how the expression of miRNAs is regulated and what are the roles of miRNAs in response to UVB damage to skin cells is still not fully understood. In our preliminary study, we observed that miR-23a was upregulated following a treatment with a DNA repair agent and UVB(More)
