  • Involucrin is a precursor protein of the cornified cell envelope in epidermal keratinocytes, where it has been located by immunohistochemistry in the upper spinous and granular layers of human epidermis. In the hair follicle, involucrin has been found in the inner root sheath and in the upper layers of the infundibulum and the isthmus (upper outer root sheath), whereas its presence in the lower outer root sheath and the cortex has been controversial. Therefore, we analyzed the distribution of… CONTINUE READING
