    Self-organization process in newborn skin organoid formation inspires strategy to restore hair regeneration of adult cells.
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2017 Aug 10;114(34):E7101-E7110. Epub 2017 Aug 10.
    Department of Pathology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90033;
    Organoids made from dissociated progenitor cells undergo tissue-like organization. This in vitro self-organization process is not identical to embryonic organ formation, but it achieves a similar phenotype in vivo. This implies genetic codes do not specify morphology directly; instead, complex tissue architectures may be achieved through several intermediate layers of cross talk between genetic information and biophysical processes.

    IL-1 Receptor-Knockout Mice Develop Epidermal Cysts and Show an Altered Innate Immune Response after Exposure to UVB Radiation.
    J Invest Dermatol 2017 Nov 25;137(11):2417-2426. Epub 2017 Jul 25.
    Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Diego, California, USA. Electronic address:
    In this study, we observed that mice lacking the IL-1 receptor (IL-1R) (IL1r(-/-)) or deficient in IL1-β developed multiple epidermal cysts after chronic UVB exposure. Cysts that developed in IL1r(-/-) mice were characterized by the presence of the hair follicle marker Sox 9, keratins 10 and 14, and normal melanocyte distribution and retinoid X receptor-α expression. The increased incidence of cysts in IL1r(-/-) mice was associated with less skin inflammation as characterized by decreased recruitment of macrophages, and their skin also maintained epidermal barrier function compared with wild-type mice.
