Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Epidermal Keratinocytes which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro HEK culture.


The major cell type in epithelial layer is keratinocytes which consists around 85% of living epidermal cells. Keratinocytes are the cells of stratified squamous epithelia. It is so named because its most abundant protein is keratin. Keratinocyte divide and are thus generated in the basal layer of the epidermis; this division is followed by a programmed death as they produce keratin and move up to the surface of the epidermis. Keratinocyte proliferation, differentiation, & apoptosis are a complex and carefully choreographed process. Keratinocyte also plays a central role in tissue homeostasis, wound healing, cancers, and skin-based gene-therapy. Human keratinocytes express adhesion molecules and cytokines indicating their participation in skin innate immunity and homeostasis in vivo.
