During chronic stress, it was observed that the hair follicle stem cells went to rest, so that the degenerated hair was shed.
In the study, it was discovered that when mice are given corticosterone (adrenal hormone), which is increased by chronic stress, this effect occurs on stem cells, which causes spillage.
“With this study, we found that stress actually delays stem cell activation and fundamentally changes the frequency with which hair follicle stem cells regenerate tissues,” said Ya-Chieh Hsu, leader of the research team. used the expressions.
Details of the research have been published in the journal “Nature”.
