For example, HLA-A/HLA-B/HLA-C expression is prominently downregulated on both keratinocytes and melanocytes of the PNM, compared to other regions of the nail epithelium (fig. 8a). The PNM also shows moderate HLA-G IR and strong IR for locally generated immunosuppressants such as TGF-␤1, ␣-MSH and ACTH, as well as for macrophage migration-inhibitory factor as prominent inhibitor of NK cell activity. Around the PNM, there are only very few CD1aϩ, CD4ϩ or CD8ϩ cells, compared to nail fold and hyponychium (fig.
MHC Class I Expression and Human HF The striking downregulation of MHC class Ia expression in the proximal epithelium of anagen hair bulbs is also seen in rat  and human  HFs. Although corresponding expression changes during whole human hair cycle remain to be elucidated, MHC class I expression has been studied in greater detail in human anagen VI scalp HFs [45, 60]. Here, MHC class I IR was found on all interfollicular cutaneous cells. In comparison with the epidermis and the distal ORS, the isthmus region of the ORS showed substantially reduced MHC class I IR, and a striking restriction of MHC class I IR to basal keratinocytes.
