Increasing evidence supports a role for mast cells (MC) in the control of tissue remodeling. Using the cyclic growth and regression activity of the murine hair follicle (HF) as a model, we have previously demonstrated that MC are involved in regulating the HF transformation from resting (telogen) to active hair growth (anagen). In the present study, we investigated the potential role of skin MC in spontaneous HF regression (catagen), a rapid and highly controlled process of organ involution… CONTINUE READING
