Co-culture of human melanocytes and keratinocytes in a skin equivalent model: effect of ultraviolet radiation

Abstract

Melanocytes grown in pure monolayer culture lack the three-dimensional organization and many of the cellular interactions that exist in vivo. This can be partially overcome by growing melanocytes together with other epidermal cells in skin equivalent models. In this study skin equivalents were prepared by seeding mixtures of cultured human keratinocytes and… (More)
