abstract
The epidermis, which forms the outer layer of the body, is a self-renewing stratifying epithelium that provides a uniques system to study the cellular mechanisms controlling tissue homeostasis and differentiation. This project will focus on two proteins identified in our laboratories, caspase-14 and ECM1, that have a role in the epidermis. However, their exact function is currentley not clear.
