Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN 46202, USA. Electronic address:

Sensorineural hearing loss and vestibular dysfunction are caused by damage to neurons and mechanosensitive hair cells, which do not regenerate to any clinically relevant extent in humans. Several protocols have been devised to direct pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) into inner ear hair cells and neurons, which display many properties of their native counterparts. The efficiency, reproducibility, and scalability of these protocols are enhanced by incorporating knowledge of inner ear development. Read More

Hairline-Lowering Surgery.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2020 May 2;28(2):197-203. Epub 2020 Mar 2.

Philip Frost Department of Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, University of Miami, 6280 Sunset Drive, Suite 504, Miami, FL 33143, USA.

As an alternative to hair transplantation for lowering the overly high hairline, hairline-lowering/forehead-reduction surgery has several advantages, including unsurpassed density and immediate results. Appropriate candidates for this surgery must have a stable frontal hairline (thus excluding most men) and a fairly to very mobile scalp that will permit sufficient advancement to warrant this more "invasive" approach. The main objective of this surgery is the lowering of the hairline. Read More

Robin Neustein Laboratory of Mammalian Development and Cell Biology, The Rockefeller University, New York, NY 10065;

Aging manifests with architectural alteration and functional decline of multiple organs throughout an organism. In mammals, aged skin is accompanied by a marked reduction in hair cycling and appearance of bald patches, leading researchers to propose that hair follicle stem cells (HFSCs) are either lost, differentiate, or change to an epidermal fate during aging. Here, we employed single-cell RNA-sequencing to interrogate aging-related changes in the HFSCs. Read More

Multimodal imaging of hair follicle bulge-derived stem cells in a mouse model of traumatic brain injury.

Cell Tissue Res 2020 Feb 8. Epub 2020 Feb 8.

Optical Molecular Imaging, Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a devastating event for which current therapies are limited. Stem cell transplantation may lead to recovery of function via different mechanisms, such as cell replacement through differentiation, stimulation of angiogenesis and support to the microenvironment. Adult hair follicle bulge-derived stem cells (HFBSCs) possess neuronal differentiation capacity, are easy to harvest and are relatively immune-privileged, which makes them potential candidates for autologous stem cell-based therapy.

Lgr4 deletion delays the hair cycle and inhibits the activation of hair follicle stem cells.

J Invest Dermatol 2020 Feb 5. Epub 2020 Feb 5.

Shanghai Key Laboratory of Regulatory Biology, Institute of Biomedical Sciences and School of Life Sciences, East China Normal University, Shanghai 200241, China. Electronic address:

It is known that Lgr4 plays an important role in hair follicle development, but the impact of Lgr4 on hair cycle is still unclear. In the present study, we have found that K14-Cre-mediated skin epithelia-specific deletion of Lgr4 results in delayed anagen entry during physiological hair cycle and compromised hair follicle regeneration upon transplantation. We show that while Lgr4 deletion does not appear to affect the number of quiescent hair follicle stem cells, it leads to reduced numbers of Lgr5 and actively proliferating stem cells in the hair follicles.

Phosphatase Regulator NIPP1 Restrains Chemokine-Driven Skin Inflammation.

J Invest Dermatol 2020 Jan 21. Epub 2020 Jan 21.

Laboratory of Biosignaling & Therapeutics, KU Leuven Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium. Electronic address:

Nuclear inhibitor of protein phosphatase 1 (NIPP1) is a ubiquitously expressed nuclear protein that regulates functions of protein serine/threonine phosphatase-1 in cell proliferation and lineage specification. The role of NIPP1 in tissue homeostasis is not fully understood. This study shows that the selective deletion of NIPP1 in mouse epidermis resulted in epidermal hyperproliferation, a reduced adherence of basal keratinocytes, and a gradual decrease in the stemness of hair follicle stem cells, culminating in hair loss.
