We have confirmed the expression of CRH and CRH receptor type 1 genes in human skin, cultured HaCaT keratinocytes, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma cells. The size of CRH messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), estimated by Northern blot hybridization, was 1.5 kilobases. CRH peptide was identified by reverse phase high pressure liquid chromatography(More)
The proopiomelanocortin (POMC) and the corticotropin releasing hormone receptor (CRH-R) genes are expressed in the skin of the C57BL/6 mouse throughout the entire hair cycle, and CRH immunoreactivity is present in the pilosebaceous unit of the hair follicle and the epidermis. These findings suggest that some components of hypothalamo-pituitary axis are(More)
CD44 is a family of cell surface proteins implicated in adhesion interactions and tumor metastasis. Multiple CD44 mRNA isoforms arise from alternative splicing of variant exons (termed v1-v10). We recently discovered a novel CD44 mRNA isoform in human papillary thyroid cancers featuring a junction between subsegments of exons 4 and 13 (v8). The sequence(More)
