The skin is a primary target organ in acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Recent results suggest that keratinocytes may undergo apoptosis in acute GVHD, although sequential structural evidence supporting this concept is lacking. The present study was undertaken to document and characterize apoptosis, confirmed by endonuclease-mediated DNA fragmentation,(More)
The human CD99 protein is a 32-kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein, while CD98 is a disulfide-linked 125-kDa heterodimeric type II transmembrane glycoprotein. It has been previously shown that CD99 and CD98 oppositely regulate β1 integrin signaling, though the mechanisms by which this regulation occurs are not known. Our results revealed that(More)
The paired immunoglobulin-like type 2 receptor (PILR) family consists of two functionally opposite members, inhibitory PILRα and activating PILRβ receptors. PILRs are widely expressed in various immune cells and interact with their ligands, especially CD99 expressed on activated T cells, to participate in immune responses. Here we investigated whether(More)
The human CD99 protein is a 32-kDa glycosylated transmembrane protein that regulates various cellular responses, including cell adhesion and leukocyte extravasation. We previously reported that CD99 activation suppresses β1 integrin activity through dephosphorylation of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) at Y397. We explored a molecular mechanism underlying the(More)
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) is known to play key roles in skin regeneration and wound-healing. Here, we demonstrate that Pep2-YAC, a tripeptide covering residues 29-31 in the B loop of EGF, promotes the proliferation of HaCaT keratinocytes with activity comparable to EGF. The treatment of HaCaT cells with Pep2-YAC induced phosphorylation, internalization,(More)
