False-colour SEM of the surface of human skin Featured February Print

False-colour SEM of the surface of human skin

False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the surface of human skin, showing a hair penetrating the outer layer of squamous cells that comprise the epidermis. The hair is covered by a modified cellular layer known as the hair cuticle; these cells are highly flattened & partially overlap one another. The epidermal cells are composed of the protein keratin, which provides a tough, uninterrupted covering over the body surface; keratin serves as a waterproofing material & is impermeable to many disease organisms.
