CCN3 (NOV) is a matricellular protein of the CCN family, which also includes CCN1 (CYR61), CCN2 (CTGF), CCN4 (WISP-1), CCN5 (WISP-2), and CCN6 (WISP-3). During development, CCN3 is expressed widely in derivatives of all three germ layers, and high levels of expression are observed in smooth muscle cells of the arterial vessel wall. Altered expression of(More)
The keratin-14 IL-4 transgenic (Tg) mouse model of atopic dermatitis (AD) is characterized by skin infiltration of T cells, early up-regulation of T(h)2 cytokines and late surge of T(h)1 cytokines. In the present study, we investigated the role of CCL27, a T cell skin-homing chemokine known to be elevated in sera of human AD patients, in disease development(More)
We investigated the functions of critical adhesion molecules ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 in a keratin-14 IL-4-transgenic (Tg) mouse model of atopic dermatitis, the skin lesions of which are characterized by prominent inflammatory cell infiltration, significantly increased mRNAs and proteins of ICAM-1, VCAM-1, E-selectin, P-selectin, L-selectin, and PSGL-1, and(More)
