概要 In this study, we attempted to detect a candidate biomarker of early stage atopic dermatitis by focusing on the levels of nitrated residues in the plasma proteins of atopic dermatitis model mice (NC/Nga mice). We found that the immunoglobulin (Ig) light chain was more highly nitrated in the plasma of the animal model than that of control mice. Western blot analysis showed a statistically significant difference between the 6-nitrotryptophan content of the Ig light chain in the NC/Nga mice before onset of atopic dermatitis symptoms and that of the control mice. Our findings suggest that the 6-nitrotryptophan content of Ig light chains could be a new biomarker for detecting early stage atopic dermatitis.
