Long and very long lamellar phases in model stratum corneum lipid membranes[S]
TLDR
Lamellar phases with long repeat distances (MLP and VLLP) may be formed in the absence of omega-O-acylceramide, whereas these ultralong Cer species likely stabilize the final SC lipid architecture of LLP by riveting the adjacent lipid layers.
Development and application of coarse-grained MARTINI model of skin lipid ceramide [AP]
TLDR
The developed model of CER[AP] is able to predict key structural properties within the acceptable error limits, and the phenomena of ceramide conformation transformation, cholesterol flip-flop, and specificity of lipid arrangement within the multilayer systems is observed during the simulation.
Behavior of 1-Deoxy-, 3-Deoxy- and N-Methyl-Ceramides in Skin Barrier Lipid Models
TLDR
The C-1 and C-3 hydroxyls and amide group, which are common to all Cer subclasses, considerably affect lipid miscibility and chain order, formation of periodical nanostructures, and permeability of the skin barrier lipid models.
State of the Art in Stratum Corneum Research. Part II: Hypothetical Stratum Corneum Lipid Matrix Models
TLDR
This review is the second part of a series which presents the state of the art in stratum corneum (SC) lipid matrix (LM) research in depth, unifying the varying different models into one which can be developed further, as new results are found in the future.
Molecular Mechanism of Epidermal Barrier Dysfunction as Primary Abnormalities
  • Ai-Young Lee
  • Medicine, Biology
    International journal of molecular sciences
  • 2020
TLDR
The molecular mechanism involved in epidermal barrier dysfunction has been mostly episodic and research into the relationship between the causative molecules has been gradually increasing, but further evidence-based systematic data of target molecules and their interactions would probably be helpful for a better understanding.
The Pathogenic and Therapeutic Implications of Ceramide Abnormalities in Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
This review summarizes the current understanding of the mechanisms of ceramide abnormalities in AD and the potential therapeutic approaches for correcting ceramide abnormality are discussed.
Molecular Effects and Tissue Penetration Depth of Physical Plasma in Human Mucosa Analyzed by Contact- and Marker-Independent Raman Microspectroscopy.
TLDR
Raman microspectroscopy showed to be a promising method for molecular single-cell and solid tissue characterization in CAP treatment of tissues and could be suitable for the screening of biological mechanisms as well as for future contact- and marker-independent monitoring of plasma tissue effects.

Phase behavior of skin lipid mixtures: the effect of cholesterol on lipid organization.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CHOL is an indispensable component of the SC lipid matrix and is of fundamental importance for appropriate dense lipid organization and thus important for the skin barrier function.
Role of ceramide 1 in the molecular organization of the stratum corneum lipids.
TLDR
The role of CER 1 for the SC lipid lamellar organization was studied and it was showed that in the absence of C ER 1 almost no long periodicity phase was formed over a wide CHOL/CER molar ratio.
Barrier characteristics of different human skin types investigated with X-ray diffraction, lipid analysis, and electron microscopy imaging.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Cer(EOS) and Cer(EOH) are key elements for the molecular organization of the long periodicity lamellar phase in the human stratum corneum.
Model membranes prepared with ceramide EOS, cholesterol and free fatty acids form a unique lamellar phase.
TLDR
The studies reveal that an equimolar ratio of EOS, cholesterol, and free fatty acids forms a lamellar phase with a very long repeat distance of approximately 14.7 nm that exhibits exceptional behavior in that in the thermotropic response the fatty acid chains and the ceramide chains undergo an order-disorder transition in different temperature ranges.

Structure of lamellar lipid domains and corneocyte envelopes of murine stratum corneum. An X-ray diffraction study.
TLDR
By X-ray diffraction, the structure of the intercellular domains and the extracted lipids of murine stratum corneum and the protein envelopes of the corneocytes are surveyed, and patterns suggest a beta-pleated sheet organizational scheme.
