Split-thickness or full-thickness grafts "take" on a bed of scar tissue or dermis following the removal of the epidermis. The technique is useful in repairing unstable scars from chronic leg ulcers or x-ray scars. It also can camouflage acne scars. extensive nevi pigmentosus, and tattoos. Examples of their use in dermatology are presented.

    The Notch ligand Delta1 (Dll1) is expressed in human interfollicular epidermis (IFE) and regulates differentiation and adhesion of cultured human keratinocytes. However, the consequences of deleting Dll1 in mouse epidermis have not been examined. Here, we report that in embryonic mouse skin Dll1...
