Abstract
The mathematical model of processes in UV-irradiated furocoumarin-sensitized epidermis is presented taking into account the mutual influence of keratinocytes and melanocytes populations. The model describes epidermis as a hierarchical structure on tissue (keratinocytes-melanocytes cooperation, melanin screen formation), cellular (proliferation and differentiation, transitions between subpopulations), subcellular (cell movement on mitotic cycle, generation, maturing and migration of melanosomes), and molecular (melanin synthesis, processes of DNA damage and repair, molecular signal transduction) levels.
