    Ultrastructural analysis shows persistence of adhesion and tight junction proteins in mature human hair


    BIOCELL, Vol.45, No.4, pp. 1013-1022, 2021, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2021.013913

    Abstract The differentiation of cells composing mature human hairs produces layers with different corneous characteristics that would tend to flake away one from another, as in the corneous layer of the epidermis, without anchoring junctions. It is likely that cell junctions established in the forming cells of the hair bulb are not completely degraded like in the corneous layer of the epidermis but instead remain in the hair shaft to bind mature cuticle, cortex, and medulla cells into a compact hair shaft. During cell differentiation in hairs, cell junctions seem to disappear, and little is known… More >
