Stratum germinativum, also called stratum basale or basal cell layer.

The epidermal layer is a your skin.

We skin cells are made, they are made in the deep layers of the skin, the dermal layer. This layer of the skin has blood supply, and cells that are in the dermal layer stay alive just fine. However, as cells in the upper layer, the epidermis, die; the skin cells in the dermal layer gets, pushed up into the epidermal layer. In this layer of the skin, there is no blood supply. However, nutrients are still passed from the blood rich dermal cells to the epidermal cells. The problem occurs when the epidermal cell is pushed right to the top of the epidermal layer, where there is no blood supply and it is too far away from the dermal layer to get nutrients vie osmosis. The cells in the upper epidermis get no nutrients and therefore die. Epidermal cells also die, ironically, because of the substances that they produce, keratin. Keratin is secreted by all skin cells to make the skin tough, durable and waterproof. However the build up of this keratin in the cell, leaks out in the extracellular space (the area outside the cell) and starts to breakdown the membranes of the cells around them and the cells essentially end up killing each other. Epidermal cells die because of the loss of nutrient supply as they get closer and closer to the surface of the skin, and the buildup of keratin inside them that leaks out into the area outside the cells.

The Bascal Cell Layer, the deepest layer where cells divide to produce new skin cells.

An epidermal cell is a cell that is part of the outer layer of an organism. For example, in humans, skin cells are epidermal. Leaves on plants have epidermal layers on the top and bottom of the leaf.

Epidermal means above (epi-) the dermis (main skin layer). The epidermal layer is made of dead skin cells which you shed all day long. They also make up most of what we call house dust.

protects skinThe function of the cells in the epidermis is to die and form a protective layer around the body.

Keratinocytes are predominant in the epidermal layer of the skin.

Our skin has two layers: (1) Epidermal layer and (2) Dermal layer.Micro-organisms that penetrate through the epidermal layer is trapped in dermal layer which has WBC's, mast cells that fight antigen.Dermal layer has two parts, papillary layer and dermis. Other processes in the dermis then gets rid of any waste collected in the papillary of epidermal layer.

Low blood supply and low keratin cause epidermal cells to die. Epidermal cells make up the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin covering the exterior body surface of vertebrates.

The outer skin layer, the epidermis

Epidermal growth factor is the substance that helps promote mitosis in epidermal skin cells .

Keratinocytes are the epidermal cells of the skin.

Epidermal pigment is pigment that is on the outer layer of the skin. In humans, that is usually melanin, which is the pigment that makes up skin.

its found in the epidermal layer of the skin

They are skin and plant cells nd i love yhouu

epi is a prefix meaning on or above dermal means skin So... epidermal refers to skin cells or may also refer to the outer most plant cells as well.

Keratin is the protein that strengthens and waterproofs the epidermal layer of the skin.

HIV mainly attacks cells in the immune system. I'm not aware of a major impact on skin (epidermal) cells.

Stratum Lucidum.....The palms and the soles of his feet has the thickest skin layer.

That is the outer layer of skin covering the body.

The epidermal layer. (below that is the acellular dermal layer)

It is the matrix in the nailbed is responsible in making the cells to form the nail plate.
