N1 - Funding Information: soriasis is a common benign hyperproliferative skin dis-ease, characterized by an abnormal pattern of keratino-cyte growth and differentiation, invasion of an inflam-matory infiltrate into both the dermis and epidermis, P and morphologic changes in the dermal capillary network [ 1]. The molecular etiology of the disease is not understood, though cytokines mediating their response via protein kinase C have been hypothesized to alter the growth characteristics of psoriatic keratinocytes . The transforming growth factors are known to regulate both keratinocyte growth and differentiation  and TGFalpha, which is rresent in normal adult epidermis , is elevated in the epidermis o psoriatic plaques . Here we show by a combination of in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry that the elevated expression of TGF-alfha RNA is localized specifically to the high-level keratinocytes o the epidermis in psoriatic plaques. Transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) is a 50-amino acid polypeptide which is involved in the regulation of both growth and differentiation of epithelial cells [6 ]. It is a structural homologue of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and effects its responses via the EGF receptor. In psoriatic skin EGF receptors are present in all viable layers of the epidermis as compared to normal skin where rhey are mainly restricted to the basal and parabasallayers [7,8]. This loss of EGF receptor down-regulation in differentiating psoriatic keratinocytes is accompanied by an increase in the numbers of cells replicating DNA in the basal and immediately suprabasal layers. Uninvolved psoriatic epidermis also shows some persistent expres- Manuscript received October 25, 1989; accepted for publication November 29, 1989.
