corneodesmosomes

Saturday 23 April 2005

Corneodesmosomes are intercellular structures that are involved in desquamation, the shedding of superficial corneocytes from the skin surface. Corneocytes are anucleated cells derived from keratinocytes during the late stages of terminal differentiation of cornified squamous epithelia such as the epidermis.
