In vitro approaches to elicit folliculogenic EMI. a Co-culture of hair follicle epithelial and mesenchymal components using cell inserts. b Formation of spheres in which keratinocytes (KCs) are covering a dermal papilla (DP) cell aggregate. c Compartmentalization of KCs and DP cells in a collagen gel droplet. d Reproduction of hair follicle-like structures made of human KCs and DP cells in Matrigel. e Regenerated HF-like structure in Matrigel. The data shown in (d, e) are obtained in a preliminary experiment supported by JSPS KAKENHI (Grant Number JP 16H05370 to MO)
