Autocrine and Paracrine Regulation of Keratinocyte Proliferation through a Novel Nrf2-IL-36γ Pathway

Nrf2 transcription factor activation is a promising strategy for tissue protection and cancer prevention, but a proinflammatory activity and stimulating effect on epithelial cell proliferation was shown. The proinflammatory cytokine IL-36γ encoding gene is a novel Nrf2 target in keratinocytes and hepatocytes, and upregulation of IL-36γ expression occurred upon Nrf2 activation. In vitro studies suggest that the Nrf2-IL-36γ axis promotes keratinocyte proliferation through a double paracrine loop. Read more
