Propionibacterium acnes Strains Differentially Regulate the Fate of Th17 Responses in the Skin


Contassot, Emmanuel; French, Lars E (2018). Propionibacterium acnes Strains Differentially Regulate the Fate of Th17 Responses in the Skin. Journal of Investigative Dermatology, 138(2):251-253.

Abstract

Agak et al. demonstrate that different strains of Propionibacterium acnes, a bacterium colonizing pilosebaceous units in healthy skin and acne, have the ability to induce T helper type 17 cells secreting either IFN-γ or IL-10 and exhibiting either pathogenic or protective properties, respectively. This work contributes to growing evidence indicating that the phenotype of T helper type 17 cells is largely dependent on their microbiological environment.
