Selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibition does not alter keratinocyte wound responses in the mouse epidermis after abrasion.


The cyclooxygenase isoforms, COX-1 and COX-2, are the rate limiting enzymes in the biosynthesis of prostaglandin E(2), a major prostaglandin involved in epidermal homeostasis and repair. Epidermal injury results in transient hyperplasia and induction of COX-2 expression. The role of COX-2 in this hyperplasia is unknown, however. In this study, we… (More)
