Epidermal desquamation

Abstract: Epidermal desquamation, a continuous but insensible bodily activity, is largely ignored unless the rate or amount of scale production becomes abnormal. It is the last topic to be considered in any serious discussion of epidermal growth and differentiation, but is becoming an increasingly fertile ground for investigation. This review summarizes: (a) methods for measuring desquamation; (b) variables that affect normal desquamation; (c) mechanisms of desquamation; (d) the role of desquamation in nutritional homeo… Show more

“…It has been demonstrated that alterations in the normal distribution of keratin markers, as well as scaffold and cornified envelope markers, are excellent means of determining the integrity of the epidermal differentiation program (9,13,14,25,28,39). Therefore, immunohistochemistry analysis of early, later, and terminal differentiation markers in back skin samples from Inv-C⌬187 transgenic mice versus those of their age-matched wild-type littermates was done.…”

“…11 The reported values are normalized. The sampling period ranged from 5 min to 1 h. 12 The data reported correspond to loosebox experiments performed at UK Institute of Animal Health and assume similar aerosol loss rates. Additional data are available for a small (610 l) sampling chamber.…”

“…In adult humans (the most studied species with respect to airborne skin cell emissions), healthy skin typically sheds one cell layer per day. Exfoliated skin cells are typically shed as individual hexagonal plates, 25 mm on a side and 0.1-0.5 mm thick [11,12]. Mature skin cells (corneocytes) can become airborne by air moving across the skin surface [23] (see also electronic supplementary material, Particle Suspension Mechanisms); however, emissions over a short period of time can significantly increase with mechanical abrasion (e.g.…”
