Organ culture studies on human skin and cholesteatoma epithelium. Contact with connective tissue and exposure to vitamin A.

Abstract

In tissue culture trunk skin from 8-day-old chick embryos showed a consistent change from keratinizing into more columnar non-keratinizing epithelium under the influence of vitamin A acid using concentrations from 10 to 20 IU/ml.
