Dermal papilla is considered the control center of hair follicle growth and hair cycle. The secondary hair follicle (producing cashmere) growth cycle of the Cashmere goat (Capra hircus) is circannual, and each growth phase can be easily distinguished by its long duration. To identify gene expression patterns and differences of the dermal papilla cell (DPC) between the anagen and telogen phases, we established two DPC lines: ana-DPCs (DPCs derived from the anagen secondary hair follicle) and tel… CONTINUE READING
