Abstract
Protease-activated receptor-2 (PAR-2) functions as innate biosensor for proteases and regulates numerous functions of the skin. However, the expression and physiological role of PAR-2 in sebocytes remain to be elucidated. Here, we identified PAR-2 expression in SZ95 sebocytes at both mRNA and protein levels. Intracellular Ca(2+) mobilization by PAR-2 agonist peptide (PAR-2 AP) or Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) culture supernatant was detected, indicating that P. acnes is a potent activator of PAR-2 on sebocytes. The small interfering RNA (siRNA)-mediated PAR-2 knockdown in sebocytes resulted in defective differentiation and lipogenesis. PAR-2 AP treatment enhanced lipogenesis and sterol response element-binding protein-1 (SREBP-1) expression, suggesting a role of PAR-2 in the differentiation and lipogenesis of sebocytes. Moreover, PAR-2 AP induced cytokines and human β-defensin-2 (hBD-2) transcription in sebocytes. PAR-2 expression was increased in sebaceous glands of acne lesions. PAR-2 silencing by siRNA abrogated the increase in sebaceous lipogenesis and SREBP-1 expression by P. acnes supernatant. PAR-2 knockdown also inhibited the P. acnes supernatant-induced expression of cytokines and hBD-2. In conclusion, PAR-2 is expressed in SZ95 sebocytes and mediates differentiation, lipogenesis, inflammation, and innate immunity in response to P. acnes. Therefore, PAR-2 might be a therapeutic target for sebaceous gland disorders such as acne.
