Abstract: 
For the past 30 years, the prevailing model of epidermal homeostasis has been that epidermal stem cells give rise to transit amplifying cells, which undergo a limited number of cell divisions before initiating terminal differentiation. Recent studies challenge the existence of a transit amplifying cell compartment and suggest a new paradigm for epidermal homeostasis.
