Epithelial cell migration during wound healing is regulated in part by enzymatic processing of laminin-332 (formerly LN-5), a heterodimer formed from α, β, and γ polypeptide chains. Under static conditions, laminin-332 is secreted into the extracellular matrix as a proform and has two chains processed to smaller forms, allowing it to anchor epithelial cells to the basement membrane of the dermis. During incisional wounding, laminin γ2 chains in particular are processed to smaller sizes and function to promote epithelial sheet migration over the wound bed. The present study examines whether this same function occurs following chemical injury. The mouse ear vesicant model (MEVM) was used to follow the pathology in the ear and test whether processed laminin-332 enhances epithelial cell migration. Skin biopsies of sulfur mustard (SM) exposed ears for several time points were analyzed by histology, immunohistochemistry, real-time PCR, and Western blot analysis. SM exposure greatly increased mRNA levels for laminin-γ2 in comparison to the other two chains. Protein production of laminin-γ2 was upregulated, and there was an increase in the processed forms. Protein production was in excess of the amount required to form heterotrimeric laminin-332 and was associated with the migrating epithelial sheet, suggesting a potential role in wound healing for monomeric laminin-γ2. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Laminin 5/laminin 332 (LN332) is an adhesion substrate for epithelial cells. After secretion of LN332, a regulated cleavage occurs at the carboxy-terminus of its alpha3 subunit, which releases a tandem of two globular modules named LG4/5. We show that the presence of the LG4/5 domain in precursor LN332 decreases its integrin-mediated cell adhesion properties in comparison with mature LN332. Whereas cell adhesion to the recombinant LG4/5 fragment relies solely on the heparan sulfate proteoglycan ...

The basement membrane molecule laminin 332 (previously known as laminin 5) activates various signalling pathways and interacts with other basement membrane components to promote squamous-cell carcinoma (SCC) development. How does laminin 332 coordinate SCC tumorigenesis and can it be targeted therapeutically?

Basal cell carcinoma cells show low proliferation rates at the invasive front and a concordant upregulation of the cdk-inhibitor p16, limiting proliferative capacity. Little is known about the mechanisms of p16 regulation in normal and malignant cells apart from that many transcription factors such as Ets1, Ets2, SP1, SP3, JunB and the polycomb protein Bmi1 have the potential to induce or repress p16 expression. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine how p16 is regulated in basal cell...

The healing of a skin wound is a complex process involving many cell lineages. In adult tissues, repair is always accompanied by a robust inflammatory response, which is necessary to counter the potential for infection at any site where the skin barrier is breached. Unlike embryonic tissues that can repair perfectly without a remnant scar at the wound site, adult tissue repair always leads to formation of a fibrotic scar where the wound has healed. In recent years, it has become clear that the w...

Keratinocytes become migratory to heal wounds, during early neoplastic invasion, and when undergoing telomere-unrelated senescence in culture. All three settings are associated with expression of the cell cycle inhibitor p16 INK4A (p16) and of the basement membrane protein laminin 5 (LN5). We have investigated cause-and-effect relationships among laminin 5, p16, hypermotility, and growth arrest. Plating primary human keratinocytes on the γ2 precursor form of laminin 5 (LN5′) immediately induced ...

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), a class of enzymes responsible for the degradation of extracellular matrix proteins, play important roles in inflammatory and immune responses. In skin, MMP-2 (gelatinase A) and MMP- 9 (gelatinase B) are normally inactive but can be expressed during tissue injury. Both degrade collagen IV and other critical components of the basement membrane zone that separates the epidermis from the dermis. The expression of MMP-2 and -9 was studied in sulfur mustard (SM)-expo...

The proper functioning of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is critical for numerous aspects of cell physiology. Accordingly, all eukaryotes react rapidly to ER dysfunction through a set of adaptive pathways known collectively as the ER stress response (ESR). Normally, this suite of responses succeeds in restoring ER homeostasis. However, in metazoans, persistent or intense ER stress can also trigger programmed cell death, or apoptosis. ER stress and the apoptotic program coupled to it have been im...

The development and progression of tumor cells is controlled by their interactions with neighboring host cells and a variety of microenvironmental factors including extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules, growth factors and proteinases. Cell-adhesive ECM proteins are a prerequisite for growth and migration of many types of cells. Their interactions with integrins and other cell surface receptors induce intracellular signaling that regulates the actin cytoskeleton and gene expression. The basement ...

The basement membrane protein laminin-5 (Lm5), a heterotrimer of a3 (or a3A), β3, and γ2 chains, regulates cellular adhesion and motility. Here we examined the proteolysis and biological function of the laminin p3 chain. First, we found that the p3 chain of Lm5 is cleaved at its N-terminal, short arm by an endogenous proteinase(s) in normal human keratinocytes and some other cell lines. To examine the effect of β3 chain cleavage, we expressed a wild-type Lm5 and two Lm5 mutants with partially de...

The replicative lifespan of human keratinocytes in culture is restricted by a telomere-unrelated induction of p16 INK4A (p16) and p14 ARF . We have found that, in vivo , p16 is expressed by epidermal and oral keratinocytes at the migrating fronts of healing wounds and at the stromal interface of severely dysplastic and early invasive lesions and that such cells also invariably display increased expression of Laminin 5 (Lam5). In culture, p16 and Lam5 are coexpressed in keratinocytes at senescenc...

Abstract Sulfur mustard (2,2′-dichlorodiethyl sulfide, SM) is a chemical warfare agent that generates an inflammatory response in the skin and causes severe tissue damage and blistering. In earlier studies, we identified cutaneous damage induced by SM in mouse ear skin including edema, erythema, epidermal hyperplasia and microblistering. The present work was focused on determining if SM-induced injury was associated with alterations in mRNA and protein expression of specific cytokines and chemok...

Abstract Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell (HSPC) functions are regulated by a specialized microenvironment in the bone marrow - the hematopoietic stem cell niche - of which the extracellular matrix (ECM) is an integral component. We describe here the localization of ECM molecules, in particular the laminin α4, α3 and α5 containing isoforms in the bone marrow. Laminin 421 (composed of laminin α4, β2, γ1 chains) is identified as a major component of the bone marrow ECM, occurring abundantly ...

Sulfur Mustard (SM) is a potent vesicant or blistering agent. It is a highly reactive bi-functional alkylating agent that cross links proteins, DNA, and other cellular components. Laminin 332 is a heterotrimer glycoprotein and a crucial skin component that attaches the epidermal basal keratinocytes to the dermis. SM wounds histologically appear similar to Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), human genetic blistering diseases that involve genetic changes in laminin 332. The specific mechanism of action of...

Abstract Sulfur mustard (SM) is a chemical warfare, which has been used for one hundred years. However, its exact pathomechanisms are still incompletely understood and there is no specific therapy available so far. In this systematic review, studies published between January 2000 and July 2017 involving pathomechanisms and experimental treatments of SM-induced skin lesions were analyzed to summarize current knowledge on SM pathology, to provide an overview on novel treatment options, and to iden...

Sulfur mustard (SM) is a strong bifunctional alkylating agent that produces severe tissue injuries characterized by erythema, edema, subepidermal blisters and a delayed inflammatory response after cutaneous exposure. However, despite its long history, SM remains a threat because of the lack of effective medical countermeasures as the molecular mechanisms of these events remain unclear. This limited number of therapeutic options results in part of an absence of appropriate animal models. We propo...

Sulfur mustard (bis(2-chloroethyl) sulfide, SM) is a highly reactive bifunctional alkylating agent inducing edema, inflammation, and the formation of fluid-filled blisters in the skin. Medical countermeasures against SM-induced cutaneous injury have yet to be established. In the present studies, we tested a novel, bifunctional anti-inflammatory prodrug (NDH 4338) designed to target cyclooxygenase 2 (COX2), an enzyme that generates inflammatory eicosanoids, and acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme med...
