The mammalian epidermis has been described as consisting of three different cell populations: keratinocytes, pigment cells, and Langerhans cells. Ultrastructural investigations of mamalian skin within the last decade have resulted in criteria whereby these cell types can be differentiated upon electron microscopic examination.
The present study was undertaken to investigate the occurrence of epidermal Langerhans cells in both neural crest-free and normal PET mouse skin, and to present evidence for a possible origin of the epidermal Langerhans cells of murine skin.
