Figure 2: Dependence of keratinocyte outgrowth on the dermal papilla. Keratinocyte outgrowths from four types of explant were quantified. Intact DP/GE explants were compared with isolated GE tissue, DP and GE tissue that was separated and then recombined, and isolated DP tissue.The latter are a control to determine how effectively GE tissue could be removed from the papilla— the limited keratinocyte outgrowth seen from these explants is presumably derived from remnants of GE tissues that were not removed from some papillae.Data from three replicate experiments are represented by white, light grey, and dark grey bars; (a) The areas of polygonal keratinocytes growing from each explant were measured (any stellate dermal cells were excluded).Error bars = S.E.M; (b) The proportions of explants producing keratinocytes were counted
