  • keratinocytes
  • One year later, a Chesebrough-Ponds patent 6 disclosing cosmetic compositions containing phytovitamin D 3 contained a discussion of keratinocytes, which constitute 75-80% of the total number of cells in the human epidermis. (cosmeticsandtoiletries.com)
  • pore
  • The aqueous pathway within the monomer unit is characterized by a narrow curvilinear pore that is ~4.0Å in diameter, ~18Å in length, and bends ~25 degrees as it transverses the membrane. (proteopedia.org)
