Name:   Human fingernail surface
Copyright:   Copyright 2009 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Caption: Human fingernail surface. The structured keratin layers are dead keratinized epithelial cells produced by the mitotic division of epithelial cells in the nail bed. The dead cells are linked firmly together by keratin attachments forming a hard protective translucent layer. Nails grow at an average rate of 3 millimeters a month. It takes about 6 months for a fingernail to grow from base to tip. Deep transverse grooves that form across the nails often indicates illness or a deficiency. Keratin is a protein that is also found in skin and hair. A similar process occurs in the growth of a hair from its follicle.
Magnification*: x98
Type: SEM
    *(Magnifications are based on a 35mm slide image of 24mm in the narrow dimension.)
