Early stages of wound healing rely on the ability of keratinocytes (KCs) to move over the denuded dermis to re-epithelialize the defect. The agarose gel keratinocyte outgrowth system (AGKOS) is an in vitro model of skin re-epithelialization designed to study the migratory function of KCs. Endogenously secreted acetylcholine controls crawling locomotion of… CONTINUE READING
