Keratohyalin granules are storage sites for several different proteins in addition to profilaggrin, where they are sequestered from other cellular constituents until. The term keratohyalin was introduced by Waldeyer (cited by Matoltsy and Matoltsy ) for components of cytoplasmic granules of the mammalian epidermis. ABSTRACT. Keratohyalin granules were isolated in the native form from the epidermis of newborn rats by the use of citric acid and a detergent.

Among others, the ultrastructural features of globular KHG were observed in the cheek, nonspecialized tongue mucosa, and parakeratotic epidermis occurring in psoriasis, pityriasis rubra pilaris, and acute dermatitis, whereas gums and palate showed a mixture of characteristics, also resembling stellate KHG as seen in normal skin.

Abstract Fine structure of lamellar granules Odland bodies and keratohyalin granules in the pathological human keratoyyalin normal mammalian glabrous skins keratohyxlin demonstrated. The isolated granules revealed a fine granular substructure in the electron microscope similar to that seen in situ.

Active cell division on the seventh day resulted in sparse keratohyalin formation inside globular granules of low hranules density, whereas numerous, rather electron-translucent lipid droplets occurred in upper spinous and horny cells.

These cells contain keratohyalin granules, which are filled with histidine- and cysteine-rich proteins that appear to bind the keratin filaments together.

Accordingly, it was concluded that keratohyalin represents a sulfur-rich amorphous precursor of the horny cell content, rather than a sulfur-poor side product of the keratinization process, or a unique histidine-rich protein as proposed by in situ histochemical and radioautographic studies.
