S., et al. Hence, to bypass the biases and selection caused by strain isolation and culture (Goodman et al., 2011), next-generation sequencing techniques are prescribed to capture the complete diversity of the skin microbiome (Neuman and Koren, 2016). The skin is home to a wide variety of normal microbiota, consisting of commensal organisms that derive nutrition from skin cells and secretions such as sweat and sebum. Skin microbiota's community effort. 352, 1463–1472. Functioning as the exterior interface of the human body with the environment, skin acts as a physical barrier to prevent the invasion of foreign pathogens while providing a home to the commensal microbiota. Epidemiologic similarities in pediatric community-associated methicillin-resistant and methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus in the san francisco bay area. An adult human body has approximately 2 m2 of skin, and it contains about 10^12 numbers of bacteria. Nature. 136, e23–e27. (2018) found that a strain of S. epidermidis, which is common on human skin, produces 6-N-hydroxyaminopurine (6-HAP) that has selective antiproliferative activity against tumor lines by interfering with the essential process of DNA replication but did not inhibit primary keratinocytes. AV affects up to 85% of adolescents of varying ethnicities and persist into adulthood with a prevalence in 11% (Cunliffe and Gould, 1979; James, 2005; Jahns et al., 2012). 143, 26–35. doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(15)00388-8, Tomich, M., Planet, P.

Two phase 3 trials of dupilumab versus placebo in atopic dermatitis. Furthermore, Staphylococcus epidermidis, the most prominent of the coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (CoNS) species (Sohn, 2018), which is generally beneficial to the host, appears unexpectedly in AD flares and predominates in less severe flares (Byrd et al., 2017), implying that a disease could arise from dysbiosis of the microbial community without an invading pathogen prevailing in the community. The skin microbiome is the genetic material of all these microbes. The aim of this chapter is to sum up important progress in the field of human skin microbiota research that was achieved over the last years.The human skin is one of the largest and most versatile organs of the human body. doi: 10.1038/nature25177, Chien, A.

L., Li, C., Ng, A. H. Q., Wang, J., Suri, B. K., et al. Whole metagenome profiling reveals skin microbiome-dependent susceptibility to atopic dermatitis flare. The tad locus: postcards from the widespread colonization island. AV (also commonly called acne) is one of the most ubiquitary non-communicable inflammatory dermatoses of the pilosebaceous unit (Williams et al., 2012; Lichtenberger et al., 2017), characterized by both specific localization on skin regions of abundant sebaceous glands (such as the face, neck, and back) and manifestations within a narrow age range in association with adolescence followed by frequent resolution (Szegedi et al., 2019). Here, we focus on members of the healthy human skin microbiota, which we consider as those taxa that stably reside (intransient) on the normal skin in the majority of humans. In a separate study, whole metagenome sequencing analysis that compared the non-flare skin of AD adults with that of a control cohort revealed skin microbiome-dependent susceptibility in AD flares and identified a distinct AD-associated skin microbiota signature, which had an enrichment of Streptococcus and Gemella reported to be originally enriched in children and a depletion of Dermacoccus often present on healthy human skin (Oh et al., 2012; Chng et al., 2016; Kennedy et al., 2017). (2014). (c) the distinction of beneficial skin microorganisms from microorganisms or communities with an adverse or sickening effect on their hosts, (d) factors shaping the skin microbiota and its functional role in health and disease, (e) strategies to manipulate the skin microbiota for therapeutic reasons. Human skin is colonized by a complex microbial community, considered for a long time as dominated by Gram-positive bacteria such as staphylococci, micrococci, corynebacteria, Propionibacterium spp., Brevibacterium spp., and members of the genus Acinetobacter being the most frequently encountered Gram-negative bacteria in human skin microbiota. Long believed to represent mainly a source of infection, the human skin microbiota is nowadays well accepted as an important driver of human (skin) health and well-being. Claesen et al. Except for the constitutively expressed AMPs, others can be agitated by cues from certain members of the skin microbiota, a phenomenon known as heterologous protection. These observations mirror AD treatment effects of other skin bacteria present in healthy and AD individuals but lack known cellular and molecular mechanisms. Across the 1.8 m 2 of the skin surface, one million bacteria reside on each square centimeter, yielding a total of more than 10 10 bacterial cells on the human body . doi: 10.1126/scitranslmed.aal4651, Cammarota, G., Ianiro, G., Tilg, H., Rajilic-Stojanovic, M., Kump, P., Satokari, R., et al. 2020 Apr;42(2):116-126. doi: 10.1111/ics.12594. Normal Microbiota of the Skin. (2012). JCI Insight 3:e120608. Skin microbiome surveys are strongly influenced by experimental design. AD (also known as eczema) is a paradigmatic chronic inflammatory cutaneous disease that affects 10–30% of children in industrialized countries and has a lifetime prevalence of up to a fifth of the population in the developed world (Weidinger and Novak, 2016; Tsakok et al., 2018; Guttman-Yassky et al., 2019). Genome Res. [The skin microbiota: a colossus steps into the spotlight]. (2018). The qualitative and quantitative analysis of the bacteria present on the surface of the skin are carried out on samples with the SW Kit. Updates on the epidemiology of dermatophyte infections. The molecular mechanism of accessory gene regulatory (agr) quorum sensing system plays a pivotal role in the orchestration of cellular behavior between CoNS species and S. aureus via an autoinducing peptide (AIP) signaling molecule. doi: 10.1128/IAI.69.3.1957-1960.2001, Paetzold, B., Willis, J.

Characterization of different courses of atopic dermatitis in adolescent and adult patients. 167, 50–58. Biomed Res. In addition, advanced sequencing technology makes it possible to provide an analysis of the skin microbiota composition in healthy or disease states at previously unexplored resolution even including the strain level within a species (Byrd et al., 2018). There is no doubt that the composition of the skin microbiota can shift dramatically during the disease progression (Kong et al., 2012). |, Concluding Remarks and Future Perspectives, https://doi.org/10.3389/fcimb.2020.570261, Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY). As we learn more about how commensal microbiota shape the cutaneous ecosystem, we may be able to leverage this specificity by the reintroduction of living microbiota to govern the skin homeostasis. What lives on our skin: ecology, genomics and therapeutic opportunities of the skin microbiome. In contrast, RT6 was found to be enriched in 99% of individuals with healthy skin. 2019 Feb 1;95(2):fiy241. (2019). We examine roles for skin microbes within this ecosystem and how these roles present risk as … In contrast to the skin microbiota of healthy adult, this distortion in patients with more severe AD flares is mainly caused by a single clade of S. aureus and demonstrates a strong correlation with S. aureus relative abundances (Byrd et al., 2017), suggesting that disease states of skin have a specific microbiota composition differing from that of healthy skin. The development of high-throughput microbial genomic sequencing technique, including amplicon sequencing and whole genome sequencing (shotgun metagenomic sequencing), makes it possible to thoroughly characterize skin microbiota constituents (Byrd et al., 2018; Grogan et al., 2019). Sci. The skin’s relatively dry environment and normal microbiota discourage colonization by transient microbes. In contrast to the interspecies dysbiosis of skin microbiota in AD, the distortion of AV is caused by the shifts of intraspecies population structures of skin bacterium C. acnes (Fitz-Gibbon et al., 2013). doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0034171, Byrd, A.
