Ultraviolet B radiation (UVB) exerts profound effects on human skin. Much is known regarding the ability of UVB to generate a plethora of bioactive agents ranging from cytokines and other bioactive proteins, lipid mediators and microRNAs. It is presumed that these agents are in large part responsible for the effects of UVB, which is only absorbed(More)
BACKGROUND MATERIALS & METHODS RESULTS RESULTS Cont’d 1. UVB generates MVP in vitro in a process involving PAF-R signaling. 2. UVB also generates MVP in human skin. 3. As MVP are thought to be functional signaling agents, these studies could provide a mechanism whereby UVB can generate systemic effects. SUMMARY For in vitro experiments, the human(More)
