S100a2 As A Putative Tumour Suppressor

The suppressor function of S100A2, however, is not so clear-cut either in normal melanocytes or in melanomas. Thus, in normal melanocytes S100A2 is expressed at very low levels or is virtually undetectable. Neither is its expression up-regulated in malignant melanoma (L.B. Andersen et al. 1996). S100A2 staining has been reported in the basal layer of the epidermis and in hair follicles, but none has been found in naevi. Also, only a small proportion (4 39) of primary cutaneous melanomas and none of 14 metastatic lesions stained for S100A2 (Boni et al. 1997). A further report has appeared on S100A2 expression in epidermal cell types and epithelial tumours of the skin. Again the basal cells, epithelial cells of the sebaceous glands, and epithelial cells of hair follicles stained positive for S100A2. Also immunoreac-tive were basal cell as well as squamous cell carcinomas (Shrestha et al. 1998). Overall, the evidence available to date does not lend itself to a firm interpretation that...

The eyelids and conjunctiva

Lacrimal Gland Conjunctiva

Of the two eyelids, the upper is the larger and more mobile, but apart from the presence of the levator palpebrae superioris in this lid, the structure of the eyelids is essentially the same. Each consists of the following layers, from without inwards skin, loose connective tissue, fibres of the orbicularis oculi muscle, the tarsal plates, of very dense fibrous tissue, tarsal glands and conjunctiva. The eyelashes arise along the mucocutaneous junction and immediately behind the lashes there are the openings of the tarsal (Mei-bomian) glands. These are large sebaceous glands whose secretion helps to seal the palpebral fissure when the eyelids are closed and forms a thin layer over the exposed surface of the open eye if blocked, they distend into Meibomian cysts.

Patient Selection

Patients should be evaluated in static and dynamic positions. Static cheek lines are normally found in patients with photo-damage while dynamic wrinkling is mainly presented in patients with thin and fair skin. On palpation, the skin feels thin and fragile. Dermal atrophy should also be evaluated as well as reduction of fat content. Young patients with thin skin usually dislike cheek wrinkling because it makes them look older. (Fig. 5.7ia,b) Patients with dry skin are also more likely to present fine wrinkling. Patients with oily skin usually present coarser wrinkling. (Fig. 5.72a,b)

Scientific Foundations

Companies manufacture cosmetics for different skin types. Skin type is determined by an individual's cellular activity. People with oily skin, for instance, have overactive oil-producing cells. Cleansers for oily skin contain substances that act as oil solvents and are effective at cleaning the pores of the skin.

Approach To Hirsutism

Followed by acne, oily skin, increased libido, and virilization. Virilization consists of clitoromegaly. deepening of the voice, balding, increased muscle mass, and male body habitus. Adrenal hyperplasia and androgen-secreting tumors of the adrenal gland or ovary are causes of virilization. Treatment depends on the underlying etiology.

Hyaluronan in Epidermal Appendices and Other Derivatives of Ectodermal Epithelium

Stratified layers of keratinocytes constitute the epidermis, but a number of other epithelial cell types differentiate from the same primitive surface ectoderm during the early embryonic period. These cell types include the secretory and conducting channels of sweat glands, the several cells involved in hair formation, the sebaceous glands and sebocytes and the suggested stem cell population located in the hair bulge (21). The epithelial, secretory cells of tear glands, mammary glands and salivary glands are also derived from the surface ectodermal cells, and the enamel organ of teeth is induced from the mouth epithelium (22). Microscopic The stratified epithelia in the hair follicle, including outer and inner root sheaths, show hyaluronan in the same pattern as epidermis, abundant around the non-differentiated cells but absent in the differentiated cell layers (23). The fat-laden sebocytes in the sebaceous glands show an interesting pattern, with a cell surface hyaluronan staining...

CMyc and Activated Ras During Skin Tumorigenesis Cooperation at the Cancer Stem Cell Level

A number of transgenic mouse models have been used to study the in vivo effects of c-Myc ectopic or overexpression in murine skin. For example, human c-Myc (Waikel et al. 1999) or 4-OH tamoxifen-inducible, human c-MycER (Pelengaris et al. 1999 Flores et al. 2004) were targeted to the postmitotic (endogenously c-Mycneg) suprabasal compartment of the skin with the loricrin or involucrin promoters, respectively. In both cases, the mice developed epidermal hyperplasia and papillo-mas as a result of differentiated keratinocytes re-entering the cell cycle while subsequent terminal differentiation was inhibited. Interestingly, Loricrin-Myc mice exhibit reduced sensitivity to UV-B-induced apoptosis, suggesting that Myc may possess unexpected antiapoptotic functions, at least in some cell types (Waikel et al. 1999). Similar tumors were obtained by overexpressing mouse c-Myc within the basal layer of the epidermis, hair follicle outer root sheath, sebaceous glands, and hair follicle bulge...

Clinical features

1 The skin of the external nose and its surrounds contains many sebaceous glands and hair follicles which may become blocked and infected. The significance of this fact is that the facial veins, which may become secondarily infected, communicate directly with the ophthalmic veins and hence with the cavernous sinus. For this reason, this zone is often known as the 'danger area of the face'.

Expression Pattern in Mammals

In keeping with the housekeeping gene characteristics of the mammalian ACBP gene, ACBP appears to be ubiquitously expressed from early stages of mammalian embryogenesis 24 as well as in adult tissues (reviewed in Ref. 25 ). However, the level of ACBP differs markedly among different cell types. High concentrations are found in steroid-producing cells (glomerulosa and fasciculate cells of adrenal cortex, leydig cells of testis) 26 , keteratinocytes, and cells from sweat and sebaceous glands 27 . Lower concentrations are found in epithelial cells involved in water and electrolyte transport (intestinal mucosa, distal convoluted tubules of kidney) 26 . Interestingly, fruit fly ACBP is also highly expressed in potassium-transporting cells in the urine-secreting Malpighian tubules 28 . Hepatocytes contain moderate amounts of ACBP, however, the total amount of ACBP in liver is relatively high due to the diffuse presence of ACBP in all hepatocytes. Also brain exhibits differential expression...

Structure Activity Relationships

It is now well established that the MCI receptor mainly expressed in melanocytes and leukocytes plays a key role in skin pigmentation and inflammatory response (136, 137). The MC2 receptor is expressed only in the adrenal gland and mediates glucocorticoneogen-esis (123). The MC3 and MC4 receptors are both found in the brain, the MC3 receptor is found in the arcuate nucleus and the nucleus of the solitary tract, whereas the MC4 receptor is mainly found in the hypothalamus (138). Finally, the MC5 receptor is involved in exocrine functions and is localized predominantly in the sebaceous glands (139). The complex role of the melanotropins and the MC receptors, in controlling various physiological functions, has made it difficult to draw simple correlations between these receptors and the

Diet Acne

Foods) can aggravate acne by increasing sebum production. Foods high in refined carbohydrates (particularly sucrose) and low in fiber can also stimulate sebum production. Food sensitivities (especially to nuts and colas) can trigger acne in susceptible individuals. Acne can be caused by preparations containing iodine, such as kelp products and certain medicines.


In animals there are two functional divisions of the immune system innate (non-specific) immunity and adaptive (specifically acquired) immunity. The former includes physical and chemical barriers to entry of pathogens (e.g. lysozyme, mucus, intact skin cuticle, sebum, colony-stimulating factors, stomach acid, ciliary respiratory lining, commensal put competitors, non-lymphocytic leucocytes of the RETICULO-ENDOTHELIAL system and neutrophils. Adaptive immune responses, unlike innate immune responses, differ in quality and or quantity of response on repeated exposure to antigen the primary response to antigen takes longer to achieve significant antibody titre than does the secondary response. They include active natural immunity, in which the animal's memory cell s respond to a secondary natural contact with antigen by multiplication and specific antibody release and active induced immunity, in which a v A c c IN e (see also I n 0 c u l a t io n) initially sensitizes memory cells....

Genes In Melanoma

The expression of chemokines is normally tightly regulated and is only transiently induced in response to mediators of the inflammatory response such as IL-1, tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a), and a variety of other agents (3). Interestingly, during tumor progression and chronic inflammation, this tight regulation of chemokine expression is disturbed such that numerous tumor lesions and chronically inflammed tissues have been reported to express chemokines continuously (2,6,44,46,50,63,66). For example, in the absence of cytokine stimulation, the expression of MGSA GRO is very low in normal melanocytes and normal retinal pigment epithelial cells, but is quite high in malignant melanoma (7,10,47,63,64). In normal skin keratinocytes, MGSA GRO expression appears to coincide with differentiation, as noted by the presence of immu-noreactive MGSA GRO in suprabasal keratinocytes and in the hair follicles, sebaceous glands, and sweat ducts. By contrast, lesional tissue from 7 7 squamous cell...

Skin Cancer

Production Sebum

ANATOMY The skin protects us against heat, light, injury, and infection. It helps regulate body temperature and stores water, fat, and vitamin D. The skin is made up of two main layers the outer epidermis and the inner dermis. The epidermis is mostly made up of flat, scalelike cells called squamous cells. Under the squamous cells are round cells called basal cells. The deepest part of the epidermis also contains melanocytes, cells that produce melanin, which gives the skin its color. The dermis (just below the epidermis) contains blood and lymph vessels, hair follicles, and glands. These glands produce sweat to regulate body temperature and sebum, an oily substance that helps keep the skin from drying out. Sweat and sebum reach the skin's surface through tiny openings called pores.
