Immunohistochemical studies of HS surgical specimens from 18 patients demonstrated high levels of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), including psoriasin
and human beta-defensin, in the epidermis.
), S100A8 (calgranulin A), S100A9 (calgranulin B), and S100A12 (calgranulin C) are markedly increased in psoriasis lesions [2, 75].
In similar models (postmenopausal women treated with estrogens), a diminished risk of bacterial infections has been observed due to the increase of mRNA coding for the AMPs HBD-1 and HBD-3, as well as psoriasin
and cAMP [3, 6, 8].
Novel S100A7 (psoriasin
)/ S100A15 (koebnerisin) subfamily: highly homologous but distinct in regulation and function.

 Vitamin D analogs suppress Th17-induced proinflammatory functions of psoriasin
and koebnerisin, and thus, interfere with the inflammatory feedback loop in psoriatic skin.
(S100A7) associates with integrin [beta]6 subunit and is required for [alpha]v[beta]6-dependent carcinoma cell invasion.
According to Reisner, syndicated data indicate that Psoriasin
Ointment remains the No.
Another protein, psoriasin
, is found in the urine of bladder cancer patients and can be used as an early diagnostic marker for the disease.
(S100A7): a putative urinary marker for the follow up of patients with bladder squamous cell carcinomas.
In combination with another antimicrobial peptide, psoriasin
, LL-37 was even more effective against P.
