Nearly 50 years ago, Chase published a review of hair cycling in which he detailed hair growth in the mouse and integrated hair biology with the biology of his day. In this review we have used Chase as our model and tried to put the adult hair follicle growth cycle in perspective. We have tried to sketch the adult hair follicle cycle, as we know it today and what needs to be known. Above all, we hope that this work will serve as an introduction to basic biologists who are looking for a defined… Expand
Biology of the hair follicle: the basics.
The mammalian hair follicle represents a unique, highly regenerative neuroectodermal-mesodermal interaction system that contains numerous stem cells. It is the only organ in the mammalian organismExpand

TLDR
The data are summarized demonstrating that regulation of hair follicle development in the embryo and control ofhair follicle growth during postnatal life are highly conserved and both require involvement of similar molecular mechanisms. Expand
Dynamic signals for hair follicle development and regeneration.
TLDR
Recent advances in the understanding of the molecular signals underlying hair follicles morphogenesis and regeneration are reviewed, with a focus on the initiation of the primary hair follicle structure placode. Expand
Hair follicle stem cells: walking the maze.
TLDR
The current review attempts to provide some guidance in this growing maze of hair follicle-associated SCs and their progeny, critically reviews potential or claimedhair follicle SC markers, highlights related differences between murine and human hair follicles, and defines major unanswered questions in this rapidly advancing field. Expand
The dermal sheath: An emerging component of the hair follicle stem cell niche
TLDR
The murine pelage DS is defined in comparison with human DS and recent work that highlights the emergent importance of the DS in the hair follicle SC niche is discussed, and potential therapeutic applications for the DS are examined in hair regeneration and wound healing. Expand

TLDR
Basic background information and key concepts that one needs to keep in mind when exploring the enigmatic "hair cycle clock"(HCC) are sketched, and competing models of the HCC are summarized. Expand
Plasticity and cytokinetic dynamics of the hair follicle mesenchyme: implications for hair growth control.
TLDR
The hair follicle mesenchyme exhibits significant hair cycle-associated plasticity, and modulation of these cell interchanges is likely to be important during clinically importanthair follicle transformations, e.g. vellus-to-terminal and terminal- to-vellus during androgenetic alopecia. Expand
The Biology of Hair Growth
TLDR
The functions of hair, its structure and the processes occurring during the hair growth cycle, the changes which can occur with the seasons, and the importance of the main regulator of human hair growth, the androgens are reviewed. Expand
Human hair follicle organ culture: theory, application and perspectives
TLDR
The guide closes by pointing out how serum‐free HFOC can be utilised optimally to obtain previously inaccessible insights into human HF biology and pathology that are of interest to experimental dermatologists, geneticists, developmental biologists and (neuro‐) endocrinologists alike. Expand
Analyses of regenerative wave patterns in adult hair follicle populations reveal macro-environmental regulation of stem cell activity.
TLDR
A new molecular understanding of the classic early concepts of inhibitory "chalone" is developed, suggesting that stem cells within the hair follicle micro-environment, or other organs, are subject to a higher level of macro-environmental regulation. Expand

Human hair growth in vitro: a model for the study of hair follicle biology.
TLDR
An in vitro human hair growth model is developed that enables us to maintain isolated human hair follicles for up to 10 days, during which time they continue to grow at an in vivo rate producing a keratinised hair fibre. Expand
What controls hair follicle cycling?
TLDR
The following contributions are designed to stimulate the discussion of the chronobiological control system that cyclically drives the hair follicle through dramatic remodelling processes between phases of growth, regression, and relative resting. Expand
Molecules of the cycling hair follicle--a tabulated review.
TLDR
This review tabulated molecules which have been experimentally identified to be associated with, or play a role in, hair follicle growth and concluded that the field of hair biology has entered a new molecular era. Expand
The fate of hair follicle melanocytes during the hair growth cycle.
TLDR
Historically, it has been proposed that hair bulb melanocytes adopt a self-perpetuating, catagen-resistant strategy of de-differentiation during hair follicle regression and re- differentiation upon entry into a new anagen phase; however, this explanation remains problematic in the absence of evidence for de- Differentiation/re-differentiated plasticity in most nonmalignant cell systems.

Hair cycle stage of the mouse vibrissa follicle determines subsequent fiber growth and follicle behavior in vitro.
The establishment of culture models representative of all aspects of in vivo hair follicle behavior is an important goal for theoretic and analytic studies. Rodent vibrissa follicles have regular,Expand
Chronobiology of the hair follicle: hunting the " hair cycle clock".
TLDR
It is suggested here that the HCC may be driven by autonomous, cell cycle-coupled secretory activities of the HF mesenchyme, namely by changes in the G0/G1-associated secretion of "papilla morphogens" by dermal papilla fibroblasts, to encourage the proposition of novel, comprehensive HCC theories. Expand
Expression of the bcl-2 protooncogene in the cycling adult mouse hair follicle.
TLDR
The expression of bcl-2, a protooncogene associated with apoptosis control, is sought in the cycling follicle of the adult mouse and the action of this apoptosis-inhibiting molecule should serve to elucidate the dynamics of follicular cycling. Expand
Human hair growth in vitro.
TLDR
The importance of this model to hair follicle biology is demonstrated by the observations that TGF-beta 1 has a negative growth-regulatory effect on hair follicles in vitro and that EGF mimics the in vivo depilatory effects that have been reported in sheep and mice. Expand
Cells within the bulge region of mouse hair follicle transiently proliferate during early anagen: heterogeneity and functional differences of various hair cycles.
TLDR
The results of tritiated thymidine-labeling of DNA-synthesizing cells and colcemid-arrest of mitotic figures on the skins of 20-23 and 75-80 day old SENCAR mice, when the follicles entered the anagen phase of the 2nd and 3rd hair cycles, indicate that the normally slow-cycling bulge cells indeed undergo transient proliferation during early anagen. Expand
A comprehensive guide for the accurate classification of murine hair follicles in distinct hair cycle stages.
TLDR
This guide should become a useful tool when screening new mouse mutants or mice treated with pharmaceuticals for discrete morphologic abnormalities of hair follicle cycling in a highly reproducible, easily applicable, and quantifiable manner. Expand
