Extracellular products of Staphylococcus aureus reversibly inhibit the terminal differentiation of cultured mouse epidermal cells






Cell Structure and Function 12(4): 395-399

Extracellular products of Staphylococcus aureus reversibly inhibit the terminal differentiation of cultured mouse epidermal cells

The effect of extracellular products from Staphylococcus aureus on the differentiation of mouse epidermal cells was studied using an in vitro cell culture system. The extracellular products from a clinical strain of S. aureus isolated from human skin lesions reversibly inhibited the Ca2+-induced terminal differentiation of epidermal cells, as determined by their morphology and the extent of cornified envelope formation. This suggests that a similar modification of cell differentiation is involved in the pathogenesis of S. aureus-induced skin disease.
