Characteristics of stratified epithelia in sebaceous glands.

In this issue (see pages 298-308), Atsugi and coworkers use3D-reconstructed confocal immunofluorescence images to demonstratethat sebaceous glands represent a form of stratified epithelia with tightjunctions. They also determined that tight junction integrity regulatessebocyte structure and function. ZO-1 (green), claudin-1 (purple) andHoechst nuclear dye (blue).
