Elemental Distribution in Cross Sections of Guinea-pig Epidermis: X-ray Microanalysis in the Electron Microscope
The barrier function of skin is maintained by a continous renewal of the stratum Corneum. By means of quasi-functional studies (e.g. autoradiography) the turnover of amino acids and nucleic acids has been studied. The stratum of the skin where “cell life” ceases, however, has not been recognized by these means.
