Transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) is an ion channel mainly studied in sensory neurons where it mediates itch, pain and neurogenic inflammation. Recently, some nonneuronal cells have also been shown to express TRPA1 to support inflammatory responses. To address the role of TRPA1 in skin inflammation, we aimed to investigate TRPA1 expression in keratinocytes. HaCaT cells (a model of human keratinocytes) and skin biopses from wild-type and TRPA1 deficient mice were used in the studies. TRPA1 expression in nonstimulated keratinocytes was very low but significantly inducible by the proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor (TNF) in an nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB), and mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase (p38 and c-Jun N-terminal kinase, JNK)-dependent manner. Interestingly, drugs widely used to treat skin inflammation, the calcineurin inhibitors tacrolimus and cyclosporine and the glucocorticoid dexamethasone, significantly decreased TRPA1 expression. Furthermore, pharmacological inhibition and genetic deletion of TRPA1 reduced the synthesis of TNF-induced monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1) in keratinocytes and mouse skin biopsies. In conclusion, these findings point to an inflammatory role for TRPA1 in keratinocytes and present TRPA1 as a potential drug target in inflammatory skin diseases.
