Figure 2: Native beard, chest and scalp hair follicles have different morphological features that are characteristic for the body site they are derived from. The morphology of grafted hair follicles is changing independently on the follicles' former site of origin. (a) Photomicrographs showing the comparison of the measured follicle lengths of native beard, chest and scalp hair follicles. Dashed arrows demarcates length determination. (b and c) Quantification of the measured follicle length of native and transplanted hair follicles from different body sites to the scalp (b) and eyebrows (c). (d) Representative microscopic images showing hair bulbs of native beard, chest and scalp hair follicles with analyzed DP cross‑section area highlighted by dashed lines. (e and f) DP sizes of native and transplanted hair follicles from different body sites to the scalp (e) and eyebrows (f) as determined by measuring the maximum area of longitudinal DP cross‑sections. Scale bars indicate 100 μm (a) or 200 μm (d), respectively. DP: Dermal papilla
