Stratum Basale also known as Stratum Germinativum.
The epidermis contains skin cells.
The meristems are regions of active growth. Cells divide mitotically in this region.
The epidermis contains pigment cells.
The basal keratinocytes which comprises the stratum basale/germinativum of the skin are mitotically active.
The stratum Basale contains the most cells of the epidermis. Through the process of enucleation and apoptosis, the number of cells decrease as you move up the strata (layers).
Something is going through mitosis, which is the process by which a cell duplicates into two genetically alike daughter cells.
The Stratum Basale. Or, perhaps, 'the epidermis', or the epidermal layer.
Some characteristics of the epidermis include flexibility and several layers. The epidermis also contains desmosomes. The epidermis is the outer layer of cells that cover an organism.
The dermis is the layer of skin that contains only living cells. The epidermis contains both living and dead cells.
The basal layer of the epidermis contains melanocytes, or pigment-producing cells.
Phagocytic cells, or phagocytes, use active transport to engulf bacteria, viruses.
The Epidermis. The epidermis contains Merkel cells which are sensory receptors that let you feel touch/pain
The epidermis contains phagocytic cells called DENDRITIC CELLS. The slender, fingerlike processes of dendritic cells extend among the surrounding cells, forming an almost continuous network to intercept invaders.
The outer layer, technically known as the epidermis.
Stratum basale, which is the deepest layer of the epidermis.
