Number of dendrites per LC in epidermal sheets.

<p>(<b>A</b>) Microscopic examination revealed each LC to have a distinct cell body from which dendrites protruded (bar = 10µm). Two individual LCs designated (i) and (ii) with 4 and 5 dendrites per cell, indicated by the white and red arrows, respectively. Percentage frequency of dendrites per LC in (<b>B</b>) pre-cultured epidermal sheets and post-cultured epidermal sheets at 24 (<b>C</b>) and 48 (<b>D</b>) hours; untreated skin (black bars), skin treated with H1 VLPs delivered by ID injection (white bars). Data presented as mean ± SEM (n = 8).</p>
