In vitro ultraviolet A irradiation decreases both release ability and gene-expression of vascular endothelial growth factor-A from mast cells.


Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays penetrate the dermis, influencing the function of different cells, including mast cells, able to produce angiogenic factors. We investigated vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) release and gene-expression from mast cells (MCs), after UVA irradiation in vitro. The release of VEGF-A by Human MCs-1 (HMC-1) was induced by calcium… (More)
