Keratohyalin granules are storage sites for several different proteins in addition to profilaggrin, where they are sequestered from other cellular constituents until. The term keratohyalin was introduced by Waldeyer (cited by Matoltsy and Matoltsy ) for components of cytoplasmic granules of the mammalian epidermis. ABSTRACT. Keratohyalin granules were isolated in the native form from the epidermis of newborn rats by the use of citric acid and a detergent.

In the stratum granulosumthe “grainy” third layer of the human epidermisthe protein Keratohyalin forms dense cytoplasmic granules that promote dehydration of the cell as well as aggregation and cross-linking of the keratin fibers. Backscattered electron imaging of high pressure frozen soybean root nodules visualizes formation of symbiosome membranes.

Skin and related structures. On the histidine content of human epidermis. Acid phosphatase activity is demonstrated on the dense lamellae in both of the intracellular lamellar granules and kerwtohyalin the lamellar pattern in the intercellular space of the homy and granular layers.

Occasionally, spherical dense granules morphologically identical with keratohyalin droplets are found in the nuclei of the mouse epidermis; their function is still unknown. Journal List J Cell Biol v. Citing articles via Google Scholar.

These cells contain keratohyalin granules, which are filled with histidine- and cysteine-rich proteins that appear to bind the keratin filaments keratohtalin.

Keratohyalin granules in the uppermost cell layer of the stratum granulosum were positively stained with the Pauly reagent, though the stratum granulosum consisted of three of four cell layers in the hematoxylin-eosin-stained specimen.

Further dehydration creates a tightly interlocked layer of cells that consists of keratin fibers surrounded by keratohyalin. As the lamellar granule is found to contain two different substances forming lamellae of different density, the function of granules may also be duplicate. Keratohyalin also known as the glandular layer, is a protein structure found in granules in the stratum granulosum of the epidermiswhich may be involved in keratinizationand in Hassall’s corpuscles in the thymus.

This case indicates that human keratohyalin granules could consist of a less electron-dense component and an electron-dense amorphous component, and the Pauly-positive substance could be electron-dense and amorphous, and the basophilic material in the hematoxylin-eosin specimen granhles be less electron-dense and granular under electron microscopy.
