Desmosomes, corneosomes and desquamation. An ultrastructural study of adult pig epidermis

Abstract

We recently developed a pig skin model to determine the role of corneosomes (modified desmosomes in the stratum corneum) and extracellular lipids in desquamation. The present study provides control morphometric data on the morphological changes in desmosomes and corneosomes leading to desquamation in adult pig epidermis in vivo. The extracellular space… (More)
