1-Chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene was used in determination of relative amounts of individual glutathione S-transferases subunits in human tissues by reverse-phase HPLC. It was used as contact sensitizer to study the antibacterial peptides hBD-2, -3 and -4 and LL-37 induced IL-18 protein release in human keratinocytes.

Biochem/physiol Actions

2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene induces atopic dermatitis in BALB/c mice model.

Preparation Note

The product is dissolved in ethanol when used as glutathione S-transferase substrate and then added to a buffer to form a final concentration of 1mM in phosphate buffer (8 mL of 0.2 M KH2PO4 and 28 mL of 0.1 M Na2HPO4 per 100 mL of solution, adjusted to pH 6.5) and 4% (v/v) ethanol.

Bacillus Calmette-Guerin extract (BCGE) has been proven to be clinically effective for anaphylactic disease, infectious diseases and cancer. In this study, we investigated the effect of the intramuscular application of BCGE on 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB)-induced atopic dermatitis (AD). We established an

In addition to its physical barrier against invading microorganisms, the skin produces antimicrobial peptides, human beta-defensins (hBDs) and cathelicidin LL-37, that participate in the innate host defense. Because IL-18 is produced by keratinocytes and involved in skin diseases in which

Allergen-specific responses in atopic dermatitis (AD) are skewed toward a Th2 profile. However, individuals with AD have been shown to make effective virus-specific Th1 responses, raising the possibility that the skin itself contributes to driving the AD Th2 immunophenotype. Therefore
