Cutaneous application of α-methylspermidine activates the growth of resting hair follicles in mice

Abstract

Recent studies using transgenic animals have revealed a crucial role for polyamines in the development and the growth of skin and hair follicles. In mammals, the growth of hair is characterized by three main cyclic phases of transformation, including a rapid growth phase (anagen), an apoptosis-driven regression phase (catagen) and a relatively quiescent… (More)
