Epidermal thickening is seen in the skin of transgenic mice expressing the transcription factor Snail, as shown in this skin section. Expansion of basal and terminally differentiating layers occurs, as detected by antibodies against keratin 5 (green), which normally marks the innermost (basal) layer, and against filaggrin (red), a late-stage marker of upper layers.
