Delayed wound healing (WH), characterized by ischemia, is exacerbated by glucocorticoid (GC) excess. Local GC availability is regulated by the enzyme 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11β-HSD1) which generates the GC cortisol from inactive cortisone. We previously reported improved WH in 11β-HSD1-null mice but regulation of 11β-HSD1 by hypoxia in human skin remains unknown. Primary human dermal fibroblasts (HDF, biological n=3), were treated...
