Fibroblasts migrate upwards and populate the The isolation and cultivation of the three major cell de-epidermized dermis, which then is seeded on top with types of normal human skin is well established and keratinocytes. A similar approach was recently described characterized. Stroma-supporting fibroblasts are isolated by Lee et al. (2000). Regardless of which dermis from the dermis, while stratified epithelium-forming equivalent is used, it has become evident that fibroblasts ke r a t i n o cytes and pigment-producing melanocytes are play an important role both for the formation of a mature isolated from the epidermis. Keratinocytes are essential basement membrane (Smola et al., 1998) and for for skin reconstruction and fibroblasts are widely used epidermal differentiation (Lee et al., 2000). for construction of the supporting dermis. The optional In skin reconstructed with de-epidermized dermis, addition of melanocytes to keratinocytes in a ratio of 1:3 an intact basement membrane and a papillary to 1:20 leads to pigmented skin reconstructs. Also morphology of the epidermal-dermal junction zone is Langerhans cells can be successfully integrated into the preserved, whereas in skin reconstructed with fibroblast- reconstruction model, when cord blood-derived CD34+ containing type I collagen matrix, a basement membrane hematopoietic progenitor cells are used (Regnier et al., is being produced by the fibroblasts and ke r a t i n o cy t e s 1997).

The different layers of anormal stratified epithelium are described in Fig. 2A. Amacroscopic view of a pigmented skin reconstruct after2 weeks of culture is demonstrated in Fig. 2C. Themelanocytes are found in the basal layer as single cellssurrounded by the neighboring ke r a t i n o cytes (Fig. 2D).
The melanocytic dendrites extend into the upper layersof the epidermis and pigment is transferred to thekeratinocytes (Archambault et al., 1995). Recently, it hasbeen shown that melanocytes in skin reconstructs protectepidermal basal cells from UVB-induced apoptosis(Cario-Andre et al., 2000). Grafting of skin reconstructs
Skin reconstructs are being used in medicine for covering wounds of patients (Kirsner, 1998). While skinreconstructs in vitro h ave a maximum life-span ofapproximately one month, survival is increased tos everal months or years when grafted to living hosts.
Long-term studies have become possible, which isparticularly of interest for carcinogenesis studies( J avaherian et al., 1998). Fig. 2E shows a pigmentedhuman skin reconstruct on an immunodeficient albinomouse. Histological and immunohistochemical analysesrevealed that: i) host vessels and immune cells infiltratedthe dermis of the grafts, ii) a papillary morphology of theupper dermis developed, iii) the differentiation of theepidermis improved, and iv) the basement membranematured (Fig. 2F). Obviously, not yet defined diffusiblefactors from the host's microenvironment support themorphology and viability of the grafted skinreconstructs. Melanoma in skin reconstructs
When melanoma cells are incorporated into skin reconstructs, a progression stage-related growth patterncan be observed (Bechetoille et al., 2000; Eves et al.,2000; Meier et al., 2000). While cells derived from RGPprimary melanomas or non-aggressive melanoma celllines are found as single cells or clusters throughout theepidermis, cells derived from VGP primary melanomasor aggressive metastatic melanoma cell lines traverse thebasement membrane and invade the dermis equiva l e n t(Fig. 2G,H). Competence for metastasis and long-termg r owth properties may be tested when melanoma-containing skin reconstructs are grafted to living hosts,for example, to immunodeficient mice.

Slovak Academy of Sciences, Institute of Animal Biochemistry and Genetics, 900 28 Ivanka pri Dunaji, Czech and Slovak Federal Republic The assumption is introduced that there are two types of adaptive responses in central neurons in response to signicantly changed circuit activity. Morphological synaptic modications and synapse turnover are thought to be involved in both of these responses, in such a way that in the rst case they are to restore the
