This study interested me, it’s nice to know a little about what is different between normal skin cells and psoriasis skin cells.

New research promises to pry some long held secrets from one of humanity’s oldest known diseases. Scientists at Rockefeller University have discovered how to parse the most troublesome cells behind the debilitating skin lesions in psoriasis and have identified several distinctive markers that suggest how they might be contributing to the disease
Dendritic cells, which are believed to be fundamental contributors to the diseasedendritic cells expressed a host of genes that differentiated them from the resident dendritic cells. Among them were molecules known as TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand (TRAIL), Toll-Like Receptor (TLR) 1 and 2, and others that could fuel inflammatory pathways
