Abstract

Mouse epidermis can be induced to undergo sequential waves of proliferation and keratinization by treatment with the tumor promoter TPA (12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate). This model system offers a unique possibility to study the synthesis of differentiation-specific proteins in the epidermis. During these studies it could be shown by sodium dodecyl… (More)
