Keratinocyte cultures: an experimental model for studying how proliferation and terminal differentiation are co-ordinated in the epidermis.

Abstract

The epidermis is the outer covering of the skin. It consists of multiple layers of epithelial cells, keratinocytes, that are renewed throughout adult life. Proliferating keratinocytes are generally confined to the basal (deepest) layer of the epidermis. Cells that leave the basal layer have lost the ability to divide and they undergo terminal… (More)
