Possible role of metallothionein in the cellular defense mechanism against UVB irradiation in neonatal human skin fibroblasts.

Abstract

The role of metallothionein (MT) in protecting skin cells against UVB irradiation was investigated. Fibroblast strains from normal adult (HS-K) and neonatal (NB1RGB) human skins as well as keratinocyte strains from human skin (SV40-HSK) and newborn Balb/c mouse skin (Pam 212) were exposed to UVB irradiation. The sensitivity of HS-K and NB1RGB cells to UVB… (More)
