Cutaneous tissues are frequently exposed to prooxidative environments, including UV radiation and air pollutants.

Abstract

Cutaneous tissues are frequently exposed to prooxidative environments, including UV radiation and air pollutants. Among the latter, ozone (O-3) is of particular concern because of its high and dominating presence in photochemical smog. It is well known that O-3 depletes small molecular weight antioxidants, oxidizes proteins, induces lipid peroxidation and activates cellular responses in various tissues. Using an in vivo model (SKH-1 hairless mice), the interaction between O-3 exposure (0.5 ppm x 6 h/day) and age was examined in relation to cutaneous wound healing. Compared to younger (8 weeks) mice, older (18 months) mice exposed to 03 (day 0 to day 9 after wounding) exhibited delayed Wound closure, increased lipid peroxidation (measured as 4-HNE protein adducts) and protein oxidation (measured as carbonyls concentration) and decreased levels of P-I kappa B alpha and TGF beta protein. These findings support the hypothesis that oxidant pollutant exposure and age interact so as to disrupt normal wound healing processes. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
