The skin is the largest organ of the body and protects the organism against external physical, chemical and biological insults, such as wounding, ultraviolet radiation and micro-organisms. The epidermis is the upper part of the skin that is continuously renewed. The keratinocytes are the major cell type in the epidermis and undergo a specialized form of programmed cell death, called cornification, which is different from classical apoptosis. In keep with this view, several lines of evidence… Expand
Burn Injury: Mechanisms of Keratinocyte Cell Death
TLDR
The underlying mechanisms of RCD and the skin’s responses to thermal stress may lead to improved strategies for treating cutaneous burn trauma and caspase-independent pathways have been suggested in regulated cell death. Expand
Caspase-8 for Outer Harmony
TLDR
Although differentiation in the outermost epidermal layers of these mice is normal, the mice suffer from strong cutaneous inflammation because of enhanced production and secretion of the proinflammatory cytokine pro-interleukin-1α. Expand
Exposure to Carbon Ions Triggers Proinflammatory Signals and Changes in Homeostasis and Epidermal Tissue Organization to a Similar Extent as Photons
TLDR
Cell and molecular changes related to the early inflammatory response of human skin irradiated with carbon ions are measured, in particular cell death induction and changes in differentiation and proliferation of epidermal cells during the first days after exposure. Expand
Microenvironment‐dependent homeostasis and differentiation of epidermal basal undifferentiated keratinocytes and their clinical applications in skin repair
  • J. Nie, X. Fu, W. Han
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology : JEADV
  • 2013
TLDR
Exploring the characteristics and regulation mechanisms of microenvironment‐dependent homeostasis and differentiation of epidermal basal undifferentiated keratinocytes is necessary to understand skin development and wound repair and to design novel therapeutic strategies for skin wound healing. Expand
Immunohistochemical study of the apoptosis process in epidermal epithelial cells of rats under a physiological condition.
TLDR
The results suggest that epidermal apoptosis is induced by the interaction between Fas and Fas-L and the activation of caspase-10, and might initially proceed through a mitochondrial-independent pathway, and that a mitochondria-dependent pathway finally accelerated under physiological conditions. Expand
Plakoglobin-dependent regulation of keratinocyte apoptosis by Rnd3
TLDR
A novel plakoglobin-dependent role for Rnd3 in the regulation of keratinocyte cell death is proposed, which is associated with resistance to cisplatin-mediated apoptosis in keratinocytes and this resistance is mediated through the desmosomal protein plakemia. Expand
Protective Effects of Salicornia europaea on UVB-Induced Misoriented Cell Divisions in Skin Epithelium
Correct orientation of cell division is extremely important in the maintenance, regeneration, and repair of continuously proliferating tissues, such as the epidermis. Regulation of the axis ofExpand
A step further toward glyphosate-induced epidermal cell death: involvement of mitochondrial and oxidative mechanisms.
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to examine the part of apoptosis plays in the cytotoxic effects of glyphosate and the intracellular mechanisms involved in the apoptotic events, and showed that the glyphosate-induced mitochondrial membrane potential disruption could be a cause of apoptotic cells in keratinocyte cultures. Expand
Epidermal polarity genes in health and disease.
TLDR
The importance of polarizing processes and their molecular regulators in epidermal morphogenesis and homeostasis is addressed and how alterations in polarity may contribute to skin disease is discussed. Expand
Genetically Programmed Cell Death: Concepts of Death and Immortality in the Age of the Genome
TLDR
This paper introduces this discussion and explores some of the implications of programmed cell death for a Christian understanding of the relationship between life and death. Expand

Life and death signaling pathways contributing to skin cancer.
TLDR
Four topics are explored: a review of the life and death signaling pathways operative in normal human skin that prevents premature apoptosis of KC with an emphasis on nuclear factor kappaB (NFkappaB) survival signals; the molecular pathways that are engaged and regulate apoptosis after normal KC are exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light; the apoptotic resistant mechanisms that premalignant and malignant KC utilize to avoid cell death; therapeutic strategies that can render malignant cells more susceptible to apoptosis.

Oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of skin disease.
TLDR
One approach to preventing or treating these ROS-mediated disorders is based on the administration of various antioxidants in an effort to restore homeostasis. Expand
Ultraviolet radiation-induced apoptosis in keratinocytes: on the role of cytosolic factors.
TLDR
The response and role of mitogen-activated protein kinases in UVA and UVB radiation-induced signaling to apoptosis in keratinocytes and what is known about the role of the BCL-2 family of proteins are summarized. Expand
Death penalty for keratinocytes: apoptosis versus cornification
TLDR
It is concluded that despite earlier confusion, apoptosis and cornification occur through distinct molecular pathways, and that possibly antiapoptotic mechanisms are implicated in the terminal differentiation of keratinocytes. Expand
Gadd45a protects against UV irradiation-induced skin tumors, and promotes apoptosis and stress signaling via MAPK and p53.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Gadd45a is a critical factor protecting the epidermis against UV radiation-induced tumorigenesis by promoting damaged keratinocytes to undergo apoptosis and/or cell cycle arrest, two crucial events that prevent the expansion of mutant or deregulated cells. Expand
Epidermal differentiation: the role of proteases and their inhibitors.

TLDR
Recent findings on the role of cystatin M/E and legumain as a functional dyad in skin and hair follicle cornification, a paradigm example of the regulatory functions exerted by epidermal proteases, will be discussed. Expand
Apoptosis in keratinocytes is not dependent on induction of differentiation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that when cultured undifferentiated keratinocytes have their adhesive interactions interrupted by either enzymatic treatment and suspension in a semi-solid methyl cellulose medium, or exposure to antibodies against beta 1 integrins and E-cadherin, induction of differentiation occurs, as well as apoptosis.

The cornified envelope: a model of cell death in the skin
TLDR
New insights into the molecular mechanisms and the physiological endpoints of cornification are increasing the understanding of the pathological defects of this unique form of programmed cell death, which is associated with barrier malfunctions and ichthyosis. Expand
Regulation of apoptosis by p53 in UV-irradiated human epidermis, psoriatic plaques and senescent keratinocytes
TLDR
UV-light induces DNA damage in human epidermal KCs triggering p53 activation, and subsequent apoptosis involving distinct cell layers and kinetics, which depends not only on the location within various layers of epidermis and levels of p53, but may also involve p53activation via post-translational modifications. Expand
NF-κB determines localization and features of cell death in epidermis
TLDR
It is shown that NF-kappaB protects normal epithelial cells from apoptosis induced by both TNFalpha and Fas, whereas NF- kappaB blockade enhances susceptibility to death via both pathways, and indicates that, in stratified epithelium, such cell death normally proceeds via a distinct pathway that is resistant to NF-KappaB and its antiapoptotic target effector genes.
