Renewal of the epidermis takes approximately:
D. It takes 13 to 14 days for maturation of keratinocytes from the basal layer to the corneum and another 13 to 14 days for shedding.
Fibulin-2 is capable of binding
D. Fibulins are calcium-binding extracellular matrix proteins that do not form large aggregates but are capable of joining other supramolecular structures. Fibulin-2 is capable of binding fibrinogen, fibronectin, nidogen, PGs, aggrecan, and versican.
Stratum lucidum is a layer present between the granular and cornified layer found in:
A. The layer appears as an electronlucent zone and contains nucleated cells.
Seventy percent of the cornified cell envelope consists of:
B. Loricrin accounts for the majority of proteins in the cornified cell envelope. It is insoluble and is highly hydrophobic. It is cross-linked by transglutaminase-3 to form homodimers and heterodimers with other proteins to increase solubilization.
Krause end bulbs or mucocutaneous end organs are found in:
A. Mucocutaneous junction
A. These structures are found at the vermillion border of the lips, glans penis, and clitoris.
