    • Prevent fluid loss
    • -Immune surveillance
    • -Sensory organ
    • Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis –life-threatening consequences are dehydration and infection
    • Mutations in genes that severely compromise epidermal function are embryonic/neonatal lethal
    • TISSUE RENEWAL–Continuous self-renewal of keratinocytes
    • STRENGTH–Both intracellular and intercellular strength
    • CORNIFICATION–Process that creates a water impermeable barrier
  • 23. Self-renewing tissue requires
    • A highly regulated process that balances cellular proliferation and cell death
  • 24.
    • Stem cells
    • Proliferating cells
    • Terminal differentiation
  • 25. Two functions required of proliferating cells in a self-renewing tissue:
    • Maintain the integrity of the genome
    • Stem cells - located within the bulge region of the hair follicle and at the base of rete ridgesof interfollicular
    • epidermis
    • Maintain the correct cell number in epidermis
    • Transient amplifying cells - located immediately adjacent to clusters of stem cells
    • pluripotent cells
    • slowly replicating cells (label retaining cells)
    • replicate symmetrically (a stem cell can divide into two equal daughter stem cells)
  • 27. How does a stem cell remain a stem cell?
    • Most agree the local microenvironment (including both mesenchymal and keratinocyte cell-cell interactions. But right now there are very few details on what keeps the cells “stemness”
    • Example of two proteins implicated in the maintenance of stemness
    • β-catenin
    • myc
  • 28.
    • β-catenin - Identified as part of the cytoplasmic plaque in adherens junctions “structural protein” link between cadherins and actin filaments
    • Keratinocyte stem cells have a high level of free, non-cadherin -associated β-catenin
  • 29.  
    • β-catenin
    • Constitutively active β-catenin
    • leads to highly enriched stem cell populationβ
    • Dominant-negative β-catenin
    • stimulates exit from stem cell
    • compartment into transient
    • amplifying cellsβ-
    • myc (c-myc)
    • Proto-oncogene involved with induction of cell proliferationIn the epidermis.
    • myc stimulates exit from the stem cell compartment into transient amplifying cells
  • 32. Stem cell failure in epidermis
    • Loss of stem cells may lead to phenotype of aged epidermis?
    • -flattening of the epidermal/dermal junction
    • -keratinocyte cell size becomes variable
    • -nuclear atypia
    • -loss of melanocytes
    • -loss of Langerhanscells
    • -slowed injury response
    • -slowed chemical clearance
    • -decreased immune response
    • -decreased resistance to mechanical stress
    • -increased incidence of cancer
  • 33.  
  • 34. KERATINOCYTE Proliferation
    • most of proliferation done by transient amplifyingcells ( TA cells )
    • -in normal epidermis, all TA cells remain attached to basement membrane
    • -transition from stem cell to TA cell is the first step in keratinocytes differentiation
  • 35. Epidermal proliferation
    • in normal epidermis, all TA cells remain attached to basement membrane
    • -transition from stem cell to TA cell is the first step in keratinocyte differentiation
    • -TA cells migrate laterally along the basement membrane
  • 36. Epidermal proliferation
    • - TA cells migrate laterally along the basement membrane
    • - TA cells have a restricted ability to proliferate -usually divide only 3-5 times
  • 37. Epidermal proliferation
    • Once TA cells stop proliferating, they lose their attachment to the basement membrane
    • Proceed towards terminal differentiation
  • 38. Vitamin D in epidermis proliferation
    • Vitamin D and the Vitamin D receptor
    • – active molecule is 1α,25(OH)2D3
    • -binds to VDR inside of cell
    • -functions as a homodimer, or heterodimer with RXR, RAR, THR
    • -Dimers are transcriptional factors
  • 39. Vitamin D in the epidermis :
    • Activation of the VDR in quiescent or slowly cycling cells stimulates a proliferative response
    • -activation of the VDR in prfolierating cells stimulates a differentiation response
  • 40. Epidermal proliferation
    • NF-κB
    • transcription factor associated with response to cell stress
    • -maintained inactive in cytoplasm through association with IκB
    • cell stress activates IKK complex of IKKα, IKKβ, and IKKγleads to phosphorylation of IκB
    • -phosphorylation of IκB leads to degradation and release of NF-κB
    • -NF-κBis now free to enter nucleus and activate transcription
  • 41. Epidermis proliferation sequences of failure
    • Dysregulation of proliferation can lead to hypo-proliferative
    • &
    • hyperproliferative diseases
  • 42.
  • 43.
    • - when a keratinocyte releases from the basement membrane, it undergoes changes in morphology and gene expression
    • -gradual change in cell strength and water impermeability
    • -terminally differentiated keratinocytes synthesize a cornified cell envelope and undergo programmed cell death
  • 44.  
  • 45.  
  • 46.
    • Keratinocyte morphology and function
    • Stratum corneum–keratinocytes contain thickened cell envelopes, contain no nucleus, imbedded in lipid matrix
    • Stratum granulosum –cells become elongated, usually 1-2 cell layers thick,accumulate amorphous keratohyaline granules
    • Stratum spinosum –cells increase in size,increased cytoplasm:nucleus ratio, cell layer4-6 cells thick, no further cell division
    • Stratum basale –cuboidal cells , cells within this layer proliferate, all cells attached to thebasement membrane, one cell layer thick.
  • 47. Differentiation-specific proteins expressed
    • Stratum corneum : no new protein expression ..

  • 48.  
  • 49. Regulation of keratinocyte cell transitions
    • Stem cells into TA : upregulation of catenin,integrins and vitamin D
    • TA cells into squamous cells : loss of integrins and vitamin D
    • Squamous cell into Granular cell : Epidermal differentiation complex ( EDC )

  • 51. Epidermis Tissue Strength
    • 1- Intracellular –Intermediate Filaments
    • 2-Intracellular -Adhesion Molecules
    • Keratins are members of the intermediate filament (IF) gene family
    • there are over 50 members of the IF gene family that are expressed in a tissue-and differentiation-specific manner
    • - IF proteins have a conserved central rod domain of helical coiled-coil segments
    • -the amino-and carboxy-terminal sequences of IF proteins are variable
    • keratins heterodimerize with specific pairing partners:
    • one Type I family
    • one Type II family
    • -the heterodimers then oligomerize into longer fibrils
    • fibrils continue to assemble until IF is 10-12 nm in diameter
  • 54.  
  • 55.
    • - keratin filaments extend from the nuclear membrane to desmosomal plaques at the cell membrane
