Abstract

Abstract The epidermal cells of the open wound margins are characteristically elongated with their long axes parallel to the wound defect. Their cytoplasmic organelles are polarized, suggesting that secretory products are released from one end of the cell. Results indicate that orientation and polarization of wound epidermis is coupled with cellular migration as wound closure proceeds.
