Which layer of the skin is the mitotic layer?
stratum germinativum or basil
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.
