Question and answer
Q: Explain the organization of the epidermis.
A: The epidermis is composed of the outermost layers of cells in the skin,"epi" in Greek meaning "over" or "upon", [ which together with the dermis forms the cutis. The epidermis is a stratified squamous epithelium,composed of proliferating basal and differentiated suprabasal keratinocytes which acts as the body's major barrier against an inhospitable environment, by preventing pathogens from
entering, making the skin a natural barrier to infection. It also regulates the amount of water released from the body into the atmosphere through transepidermal water loss (TEWL) ]
