Cryostat sections of human skin were stained with monoclonal antibodies to involucrin, a range of cytokeratins, epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), and an ovarian cystadenocarcinoma antibody (OM1) to identify combinations of antibodies that could be used to discriminate between basal and differentiated sebocytes and other cell types present in the pilosebaceous unit. Both the EMA and OM1 monoclonal antibodies specifically recognized differentiated sebocytes. No staining of basal sebocytes or… CONTINUE READING
