Caption: SKIN, ILLUSTRATION Illustration showing the epidermal lamellar bodies, also called Odland body, lamellar bodies, lamellar granules, or keratinosomes. Epidermal lamellar bodies are vesicles present in keratinocytes of the prikly layer (stratum spinosum) and, in larger numbers, in the keratinocytes of the granuluar layer (stratum granulosum) of the epidermis. They contain lipids and enzymes. After exocytosis in the intercellular space, the lipids are metabolized by the enzymes to give the free ceramids and the fatty acids present in the horny layer (stratum corneum) of the epidermis, thus forming a protectrive barrier.
