Hair is a mini-organ in which dermal papilla (DP) cells play important roles in hair follicle morphogenesis and formation via interactions with epithelial cells. DP cells have previously been difficult to analyze because of the lack of a specific surface marker. We have demonstrated that prominin-1/CD133 (CD133) is a useful marker for murine DP cells. DP cells express CD133 during the early anagen stage (active growth phase) not only during hair morphogenesis, but also during the growth phase… CONTINUE READING
