Hyaluronan (HA), a major component of the cutaneous extracellular-matrix, is involved in tissue repair. Human skin is exposed to and damaged by UVB-irradiation. Here, we investigate the regulation of HA metabolism in human skin during acute UVB-induced inflammation. Expression of HA synthesizing (HAS) and degrading enzymes hyaluronidase (HYAL) as evaluated(More)
In skin, an evolving inflammatory or immune response is triggered by early release of a cytokine cascade into the extracellular space. Investigation of extracellular cytokine secretion in situ has been limited by low cut-off filtering membranes and sample volume size and the inability to monitor changes in cytokine protein levels in real-time in situ. Here,(More)
