They can also form stratified epidermal structure [15], but they can revert, back and forth, between a differentiated and a basal state upon changes in [Ca.sup.2+] concentration in the medium [16]; they retain the capacity to reconstitute a well-structured epidermis after transplantation in vivo [17].
HaCaT cells remain in the basal state (high levels of K14) when maintained in low [Ca.sup.2+] conditions and less than 80% confluent (A6), while they begin to differentiate expressing high levels of K10 and involucrin after a long-term culture (A14), that is when, although maintained in low [Ca.sup.2+] medium, they are overconfluent.
