Summary of "IL-17E (IL-25) enhances innate immune responses during skin inflammation."

IL-17E (IL-25) is a member of the IL-17 cytokine family involved in the promotion of type 2 immune responses. Recently, IL-17E has been reported to be upregulated in distinct skin inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis, atopic and contact dermatitis. We assessed the role played by IL-17E in skin inflammation. Here we show that IL-17E induces skin inflammation in vivo, characterized by the expression of innate immune response genes and the recruitment of innate immune cells, particularly neutrophils. Genetic deletion or IL-17E neutralization ameliorated skin inflammation induced by imiquimod application, or tape-stripping, with reductions in neutrophil and macrophage infiltration as assessed by t-SNE-guided multiparameter flow cytometry analysis, in mice. In man, IL-17E promotes the recruitment of neutrophils via activation of macrophages in a p38-dependent mechanism. In addition, IL-17E is up-regulated in neutrophil-rich inflammatory skin diseases, such as pyoderma gangrenosum and acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis. Our data demonstrate a role for IL-17E in skin inflammation, which is unrelated to the development of type 2 immune reactions. We propose that IL-17E is an important common denominator of chronic skin inflammation promoting innate immune cell recruitment and activation.

A heterodimeric cytokine that plays a role in innate and adaptive immune responses. Interleukin-12 is a 70 kDa protein that is composed of covalently linked 40 kDa and 35 kDa subunits. It is produced by DENDRITIC CELLS; MACROPHAGES and a variety of other immune cells and plays a role in the stimulation of INTERFERON-GAMMA production by T-LYMPHOCYTES and NATURAL KILLER CELLS.

A heterogeneous, immature population of myeloid cells that can suppress the activity of T-CELLS and NATURAL KILLER CELLS in the INNATE IMMUNE RESPONSE and ADAPTIVE IMMUNE RESPONSE. They play important roles in ONCOGENESIS; INFLAMMATION; and INFECTION.

A member of the S100 PROTEIN FAMILY that regulates INFLAMMATION and the immune response. It recruits LEUKOCYTES, promotes cytokine and chemokine production, and regulates leukocyte adhesion and migration. S100A12 can also function via binding to ADVANCED GLYCOSYLATION END PRODUCT-SPECIFIC RECEPTORS, to stimulate innate immune cells.

Inflammation of the MUCOSA of both the SMALL INTESTINE and the LARGE INTESTINE. Etiology includes ISCHEMIA, infections, allergic, and immune responses.
