Keratinocytes are predominant in the epidermal layer of the skin.

A keratinocyte is the predominant cell type in the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin, constituting 90% of the cells found there. Those keratinocytes found in the basal layer (stratum basale) of the skin are sometimes referred to as "basal cells" or "basal keratinocytes.

Keratinocytes are the epidermal cells of the skin.

The outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, consists mainly of cells called keratinocytes.

"Basal cell layer" divides continuosly to provide proliferation, which continues with differentiation in upper layers to evolve Keratinocytes.

Mitotic cell division occurs in the Basale layer of the epidermis. Stem cells undergo mitosis to produce new keratinocytes. Of the two keratinocyte daughter cells produced by mitosis, one migrates to the surface of your skin while the one remains in the basale layer of the epidermis to produce more keratinocytes cells.

No, keratinocytesdoes not produce pigments.. they receive it from melanocyteswho produces it.. this pigment it's called melanine.Instead, keratinocytesproduce keratin.

Keratinocytes in the deepest layer of the epidermis that undergos rapid cell division.

No, hemoglobin is found predominantly in blood. The stratum corneum is avascular, and hemoglobin is not predominant in this skin layer.

Melanocytes are pigment cells that synthesize melanin. These cells inject the melanin pigment in the living keratinocytes cells (skin cells) of the stratum basale layer of the epidermis. Note: The Melanocyte cells also reside in the stratum basale.

Accumulate the melanin granules on their superficial portion, forming a pigment that protects DNA from UV radiation

A layer of skin can be Extra Skin or Fat.

The dermis is the inner layer of the skin. The epidermis is the outer layer of your skin. The dermis is the inner layer of skin underneath the epidermis

the epidemis is the outermost layer of the skin

No the epidermis is the superficial layer of the skin and the dermis is the deep layer of skin.

well on the bottom layer of skin is a smooth layer of skin & the top layer of skin is rough and bummpy ..

Keratin is found in all the layers of the epidermis. Keratinocytes are filled with a tough, fibrous protein that protects the deeper layers of the skin. They are produced in the stratum germinativum and move through the layers of the epidermis towards the most outer layer, the stratum corneum.

The Stratum Corneum is the most superficial layer of skin.

The layer of skin that adds cushion is the fatty layer.

The dermis is the vascular layer of your skin.

The dermis is the vascular layer of the skin.

the thin outermost layer of skin is your epidermisThe outermost layer of skin is called Epidermis

the skin consists of the epidermis, or the outside layer of skin, and the dermis, or the inside layer of skin.

Your skin is made up of two layers that cover a third fatty layer. The outer layer is called the epidermis, and the second layer is called the dermis, which contains nerve endings, sweat glands, oil glands and hair follicles.The most important cell type of the skin, in fact the one that can be actually said to form up the skin in common speak, are keratinocytes.It should be noted that skin can be divided into epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis.Epidermis is made up of the aforementioned keratinocytes plus melanocytes, Langerhans cells, and the Merkels cell.In the dermis fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells and various epithelial cellscan be found.Finally, in the hypodermis one can find adipose cells, distinct immune cells, nerve cells, and again fibroblasts, endothelial cells and various epithelial cells
