Summary of "Exogenous hydrogen sulfide supplement accelerates skin wound healing via oxidative stress inhibition and vascular endothelial growth factor enhancement."

Hydrogen sulfide (H S) is an important gasotransmitter with several physiological functions. However, the roles and the detailed mechanisms of H S on skin wound healing are not known well. In the present study, 129S1/SvImJ mice were intraperitoneally injected with NaHS (50 μmol/kg/d) for 2 weeks. Then a round wound of 6 mm diameter with depth into the dermis was made. The skin wound area, blood perfusion, superoxide production, malondialdehyde (MDA) levels, total antioxidant capacity (T-AOC), expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), dynamin-related protein 1 (DRP1) and optic atrophy 1 (OPA1) were measured. After NaHS (50 μmol/L) pre-administration for 4 h, cell migration rate, DRP1, OPA1 and α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) expression, superoxide production and mitochondrial membrane potential in primary skin fibroblasts were measured. Tube formation in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and cell migration in human keratinocytes were also measured. The results showed that NaHS pre-treatment significantly accelerated wound healing and improved blood flow in the wound after operation. NaHS increased VEGF expression in the wound and promoted tube formation in HUVECs. Meanwhile, NaHS attenuated reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, suppressed MDA level but restored T-AOC in the wound. NaHS also promoted skin fibroblasts migration and α-SMA expression after scratch. Moreover, NaHS alleviated ROS, increased mitochondrial membrane potential, decreased DRP1 but enhanced OPA1 expression in skin fibroblasts after scratch. NaHS also accelerated human keratinocytes migration after scratch. Taken together, exogenous H S supplementary accelerated the skin wound healing, which might be related to oxidative stress inhibition and VEGF enhancement. This article is protected by copyright.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.

A heterogeneous group of autosomally inherited COLLAGEN DISEASES caused by defects in the synthesis or structure of FIBRILLAR COLLAGEN. There are numerous subtypes: classical, hypermobility, vascular, and others. Common clinical features include hyperextensible skin and joints, skin fragility and reduced wound healing capability.

Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)

A NADPH-dependent oxidase that reduces hydrogen sulfite to HYDROGEN SULFIDE. It is found in many microoganisms.

A topically used antibiotic from a strain of Pseudomonas fluorescens. It has shown excellent activity against gram-positive staphylococci and streptococci. The antibiotic is used primarily for the treatment of primary and secondary skin disorders, nasal infections, and wound healing.
