The transcription factor Nrf2 is a key regulator of the cellular stress response, and pharmacological Nrf2 activation is a promising strategy for skin protection and cancer prevention. We show here that prolonged Nrf2 activation in keratinocytes causes sebaceous gland enlargement and seborrhea in mice due to upregulation of the growth factor epigen, which(More)
BACKGROUND Defects in keratinocyte differentiation and skin barrier are important features of inflammatory skin diseases like atopic dermatitis. Mast cells and their main mediator histamine are abundant in inflamed skin and thus may contribute to disease pathogenesis. METHODS Human primary keratinocytes were cultured under differentiation-promoting(More)
OBJECTIVE Endothelial cells comprise a key component of the inflammatory response. We set out to obtain a comprehensive overview of the immediate-early to early gene expression program of interleukin-1 (IL-1)-stimulated endothelial cells and to identify novel transcription factors and regulatory elements. METHODS AND RESULTS Human umbilical vein(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In a very limited number of cases, acute migrainous aura may mimic acute brain infarction. The aim of this study was to recognize patterns of MR perfusion abnormalities in this presentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS One thousand eight hundred fifty MR imaging studies performed for the suspicion of acute brain infarction were analyzed(More)
Hallux valgus represents a combined deformity with malpositioning of the big toe in the metatarsophalangeal joint and metatarsal splaying due to metatarsus primus varus formation. It is defined on the basis of joint condition of the metatarsophalangeal and tarsometatarsal (TMT) joints, the extent and congruence or incongruence of malposition, mobility of(More)
We previously showed that, when peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were stressed with ionizing radiation, they released paracrine factors that showed regenerative capacity in vitro and in vivo. This study aimed to characterize the secretome of PBMCs and to investigate its biologically active components in vitro and vivo. Bioinformatics analysis(More)
BACKGROUND Various techniques have been developed to estimate spontaneous baroreflex sensitivity noninvasively. However, in the EuroBaVar study it has been shown that they yield differing results. AIM OF THE STUDY To investigate the reliability of these methods further we compared the results of the most common sequence techniques. We used the paradigm of(More)

We systematically compare filtering methods used to extract topological excitations from lattice gauge configurations. We show that there is a strong correlation of the topological charge densities obtained by APE and Stout smearing. Furthermore, a first quantitative analysis of quenched and dynamical configurations reveals a crucial difference of their(More)
Hyperspectral inspection using imaging systems is becoming more and more important for quality control tasks in several industries, replacing well trained operators or established machine vision systems based on RGB-systems. Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) on thin coated substrates is challenging due to the high reflectivity of the substrates. Nevertheless, the(More)
