In this study, our goal was first to functionally profile and characterize the response of normal human keratinocytes (NHEK) to microbial patterns (TLR agonists) and IL-1α in parallel. To do so, the effects of multiple TLR agonists and IL-1α were evaluated on the gene expression profile, on signal transduction (NF-ƘB translocation) and also on IL-8 and IL-6 release. Secondly, we also tried to link these responses to those of pathogens of interest in skin microbiota (namely, C. acnes, S. aureus and P. aeruginosa), by evaluating the effect on IL-8 release by NHEK infected with living bacteria from these 3 strains...

Evidence of a potential immunosuppressive effect of DHT.
Acne is a skin pathology targeting the pilosebaceous unit…sebum hypersecretion and bacterial infection. We studied the effects of living bacteria on the induction of an innate immune response in a sebocyte cell line.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an opportunistic pathogen involved in skin and lung diseases, possesses numerous virulence factors, including type 2 and 3 secretion systems (T2SS and T3SS) and its flagellum, whose functions remain poorly known during cutaneous infection.
