Substance P and nitric oxide mediate would healing of ultraviolet photodamaged rat skin: evidence for an effect of nitric oxide on keratinocyte proliferation

Neuroscience Letters
J BenrathF Gillardon


Since it has been demonstrated recently that neuropeptides are involved in wound healing in vivo we investigated the role of substance P (SP), calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and nitric oxide (NO) in regeneration of ultraviolet (UV) photodamaged rat skin by topical administration of specific antagonists. Topical application of the neurokinin (NK)1-receptor antagonist (2S,3S)-cis-2-(diphenylmethyl)-N-[(2-methoxyphenyl)methyl]-1-azabi cyclo[ 2.2.2]octan-3-amine (CP-96,345) significantly delayed the reduction of the necrotic area at all timepoints post UV-irradiation, whereas topically administered NO synthase inhibitor NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester hydrochloride (L-NAME) resulted in an increased necrotic area only at 7 days post-irradiation. More important, topically administered L-NAME but not SP reduced nuclear immunolabelling for proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) of the UV-exposed epidermis, suggesting a NO-mediated stimulation of keratinocyte proliferation. These findings suggest that endogenous SP and NO have a trophic function in wound healing after UV-induced damage of the skin which may be mediated by stimulation of angiogenesis or epidermal cell proliferation.

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.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
