What nourishes the stratum basale?
Is the outermost layer of the epidermis the stratum basale and the innermost layer the stratum corneum?
Cell division occurs in the stratum basale of the epidermis. The epidermis is made up of 5 layers. From outer to inner these layers are: stratum corneum, stratum licidum, stratum granulosum, stratum spinosum, and stratum basale. The basale is the innermost layer of the epidermis and is where cell division occurs.
The layer of skin that is composed of several layers of different-shaped cells and is responsible for the growth of the epidermis is the?
The epidermis is divided into different layers: - Stratum corneum - Stratum lucidum - Stratum granulosum - Stratum spinosum - Stratum basale The stratum basale is made up of the cells which through mitosis replicate several times. Each of these cells goes up towards the surface by being "pushed" by the new cells in formation. Stratum basale is the place of "birth" of the cells that compose the rest of layers which form the epidermis.
Stratum germinativum (also known as stratum basale or basal layer) is the deepest layer of the epidermis. In this layer, mitosis generates new keratinocytes. The epidermis is composed of 5 layers. From most superficial to most deep, those are: 1) stratum corneum 2) stratum lucidum 3) stratum granulosum 4) stratum spinosum 5) stratum basale
