Abstract

Sortilin, a member of the family of Vps10p domain receptors, has been shown to be able to bind the precursor peptide of nerve growth factor (proNGF). ProNGF interacts with sortilin and the p75 NTR receptor on the cell surface to form a molecular complex capable of activating an apoptotic cascade. Keratinocytes can secrete proNGF and they have p75 NTR on their surface. The expression of sortilin in normal human keratinocytes has not yet been clearly shown. In this study, we show that keratinocytes express sortilin mRNA, and the presence of sortilin protein is shown in cultured keratinocytes and in normal human skin. We have also shown that the cutaneous neuropeptides substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide, and galanin are able to reduce the expression of sortilin mRNA and sortilin protein in cultured human keratinocytes. In addition, each of the analyzed neuropeptides has the ability to arrest the proNGF-induced apoptosis of human keratinocytes. These results suggest that all the participants in the NGF/proNGF pathway are present in the keratinocytes, and cutaneous neuropeptides can modulate their expressions and actions. The NGF/proNGF balance and its regulation by neuropeptides may have an important role in skin homeostasis.
