Les enzymes de l'espace extra-cellulaire du stratum corneum

International Journal of Cosmetic Science
J P Forestier


Synopsis Bien que le stratum corneum soit composé de cellules 'mortes', il est le siège d'une activité métabolique très importante. Mais, contrairement à la plupart d'autres tissus, cette activité a la particularité d'étre extra-cellulaire. Elle est due à des enzymes excrétées par les Corps d'Odland avec les bicouches céramidiques. Ces enzymes sont des hydrolases, elles sont identiques ou très proches de celles des lysosomes. Les principales activités observées correspondent à une (ou des) glycosidase(s), une phospholipase, une sphingomyélinase, une phosphatase, une (ou des) estérase(s), des sulfatases, des protéases. Comme les hydrolases des lysosomes, elles semblent peu spécifiques. Ce pool enzymatique pourrait jouer plusieurs rôles fondamentaux, notamment: 1. La transformation des bicouches gluco-céramidiques en bicouches ceramidiques plus lipophiles; 2. L'élimination de la membrane plasmique, dont certains produits du catabolisme, comme les acides gras et les céramides, peuvent être intégrés aux bicouches céramidiques; 3. La diminution de la cohésion entre les cornéocytes; 4. La protection contre l'intrusion de corps étrangers. Comme tout système enzymatique, les hydrolases extra-cellulaires, sont certainement soumises à de...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.

Long COVID-19

“Long Covid-19” describes illness in patients who are reporting long-lasting effects of the SARS-CoV-19 infection, often long after they have recovered from acute Covid-19. Ongoing health issues often reported include low exercise tolerance and breathing difficulties, chronic tiredness, and mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. This feed follows the latest research into Long Covid.
