Morphogenetic Mechanisms in the Cyclic Regeneration of Hair Follicles and Deer Antlers from Stem Cells

Figure 9

Examples showing the importance of the interactive tissue types coming together for organogenesis. (a) Reproduced with permission from [23, Plate 1 Figure 2]. Broken HF epithelial strand (arrows) in a hairless mouse skin that failed to bring the DP (dp) upward towards the bulge. (b) Perennial antler grown by a female deer. This type of antlers is not subject to annual regeneration cycles as they do not shed their velvet; hence, the epidermis of a pedicle skin cannot come to abut directly on the PP.
