Kallikrein 5 induces atopic dermatitis-like lesions through PAR2-mediated thymic stromal lymphopoietin expression in Netherton syndrome.
Half of these cytokines, namely CCL-24 (official gene symbol, CCL24), IL-7 (official gene symbol, IL7), lymphotoxin [beta] (LT[beta]; official gene symbol, LTB), and thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP; official gene symbol, TSLP) were not induced in mock-transfected control cells after LPS stimulation.

Beck concluded by describing a likely nearterm atopic dermatitis prevention and management scenario: High-risk infants will be identified on the basis of noninvasive assessment of epithelial features, such as transepidermal water loss or the presence of high levels of thymic stromal lymphopoietin on the skin surface.

In AD patients, genetic conditions, external stimuli, or scratching episodes disrupt barrier skin that facilitates allergen penetration and activation of keratinocytes to produce thymic stromal lymphopoietin that triggers dendritic cells to induce a Th2-cell mediated response [4].
These cells secrete several cytokines such as thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), IL25, and IL33, which can directly activate DC [20-22], and chemokines such as monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP1/also called CCL2) and macrophage inflammatory protein-3 (MIP3a/also called CCL20), which recruit basophils (BS).

Additionally, it has been reported that hospitalized infants with viral bronchiolitis have detectable levels of nasal IL-13, IL-33, and thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) [96, 97].
Another hint that loss of dendritic HIF-1[alpha] may affect the crosstalk between DCs and IECs was the finding that only HIF-1[[alpha].sup.+f/+f] mice exhibited increased levels of thymic stromal lymphopoietin receptor (TSLPR) in DSS colitis.
