Damage at the root of cell renewal--UV sensitivity of human epidermal stem cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The epidermis harbors adult stem cells that reside in the basal layer and ensure the continuous maintenance of tissue homeostasis. Various studies imply that stem cells generally possess specific defense mechanisms against several forms of exogenous stress factors. As sun exposition is the most prevalent impact on human skin, this feature would… (More)
