Cells of various morphologies have been cultured from plucked hairs in vitro. These include keratinocytes, large polygonal cells, large and small spindle‐shaped cells and endothelial cells. 

Topics from this paper

In vitro culture of chick down feather bulbi: A tool to obtain proliferating and differentiating keratinocytes in an organotypic structure
TLDR
Morphological analysis and3H-thymidine incorporation measurements prove that the majority of cells are viable epithelial cells in chick down feather bulbi. Expand
Culture of hair matrix and follicular keratinocytes.
TLDR
Several in vitro models today to cultivate ORS KC and hair matrix cells that have increased knowledge on the regulation of the human hair cycle by soluble factors and dermal-epidermal interactions are disposed of. Expand
Growth of human hair follicle keratinocytes in vitro. Ultrastructural features of a new model.
TLDR
A simple experimental technique was developed to provide an in vitro model for the study of human follicular keratinocytes, producing multilayered cultures of cells joined with fully developed desmosomes that may provide a promising model on which to base further studies of hair biologic processes and hair growth. Expand
In Vitro Culturing and Harvesting of Human Plucked Hair Follicles
TLDR
It is proposed that plucked human hairs are a cheap source to treat male baldness and in vitro culturing of hair follicle cells is the potential method to apply the cultured cells back into the balding scalp. Expand
Electron microscopic study of cultured cells from the murine hair tissues: cell growth and differentiation
TLDR
Electro microscopic study of cultured hair cells from 4-day-old C3H mice reveals that immature cells obtained from mouse hair tissues proliferate in vitro and differentiate into several subpopulations corresponding to those of in vivo cell layers of hair tissues. Expand
Epidermal growth factor and fibroblast growth factor accelerate proliferation of human hair bulb papilla cells and root sheath tibroblasts cultured in vitro
MADAM, Recently, Messenger, Senior and Bleehen (Briiish Journal of Dermatology, 1986, 114: 425) reported on some in viiro properties of human hair bulb papilla ceil lines as compared to those ofExpand
Organ culture of human scalp hair follicles: effect of testosterone and oestrogen on hair growth
TLDR
The minimum effective doses of both hormones to suppress hair growth were around 5 ng/ml, which corresponds well to the normal plasma level of testosterone in adult males in vivo, suggesting that scalp hair growth may be critically controlled by testosterone inAdult males. Expand
Cultivation of Human Hair Follicle Cells
TLDR
A wide variety of endogenous and environmental factors influence the periodic life cycle of human hair and the role of nutritional factors such as vitamins, proteins, minerals, and also light, temperature, and several hormones, including the androgens was studied. Expand
Organ culture conditions of human hair follicles.
TLDR
It was found that culture conditions of 95% O2-5% CO2 at 31 degrees C were superior when compared to normal culture conditions for cultures of human hair follicles when attempting to maintain the normal morphology of hair germinative cells. Expand
Evaluation of chromosomal aberrations in lymphocytes and micronuclei in lymphocytes, oral mucosa and hair root cells of patients under antiblastic therapy.
TLDR
The structural chromosomal aberration test in peripheral lymphocytes was compared with the micronucleus test in lymphocytes, in oral cavity cells and in hair root cells of the scalp and the last test appears to be very promising but, used following the current method, does not appear suitable to monitor acute exposure.

For the first time a method for culturing human hair follicle cells is described, using the bovine eye lens capsule as the substrate for the cultures. Expand
Human adult endothelial cell growth in culture.
TLDR
A technique that allows HAECs from human adult arteries, veins, and capillaries to proliferate vigorously in culture for up to 80 population doublings is developed and permits for the first time with human cells the in vitro study of prosthetic grafts--HAEC interactions and the factors that enhance optimal growth and adherence to prosthetic materials.

TLDR
An area effect was observed in the epithelial response to 90Sr irradiation and it is suggested that the area effects could be explained by different modes of epithelial repopulation after irradiation. Expand
Changes in the DNA labelling index after beta irradiation of the mouse epidermis.
TLDR
Between days 10 and 20 the major source of repopulation is probably derived from local migration and proliferation of surviving hair follicle basal cells within the irradiated field, and this is primarily due to cell proliferation and migration from the unirradiated margins of the field. Expand
