Description This high power view illustrates the relationship of epidermal pegs, which invaginate into the dermis, with the dermal papillae which extend into the epidermis. This sample has a highly pigmented basal layer, composed of keratinocytes with melanosomes. Melanocytes produce the pigment melanin and are distinguishable due to their clear cytoplasm. Note the spiny layer. UCLA Histology Collection.
