Skin equivalents (SEs) have been designed to meet both basic and applied research needs. The successful application of tissue-engineered SEs requires that the reconstituted tissues be endowed with the correct organization and function. A large body of experimental evidence now supports the notion that the inducing effects of mesenchymal tissue on epithelial(More)
The process of skin aging is a combination of an extrinsic and intrinsic aspect, and knowing the molecular changes underlying both is a prerequisite to being able to effectively counter it. However, despite its importance for a deeper understanding of skin aging as a whole, the process of intrinsic skin aging in particular has barely been investigated. In(More)
A tissue engineered human skin equivalent is successfully used for the testing of raw materials and cosmetic formulations. This reconstructed skin is supported by a collagen-glycosaminoglycan-chitosan biopolymer in which human keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts were co-cultured to form a tissue that closely reproduces the in vivo architecture of normal(More)
