signalling for physiological color change.
In sea urchin larvae, the skeletogenic mesenchyme cells (4), pigment cells
(6), and muscle cells (7) are derived from mesodermal cells, and spatiotemporal and temporal-numeric studies of pigment cells
have been conducted in a variety of sea urchin species (8-11).
In pigment cells
, NO causes aggregation in amphibian melanophores (Nilsson et al., 2000, 2001) and dispersion in fish melanophores (Hayashi and Fujii, 2001).
Additionally, the pigment cells
aggregated and were fewer in number (Table 1; Fig.
Quantitative in vitro assay for crustacean chromatophorotropins and other pigment cell
Melanoma is a cancer of the pigment cells
in our skin.
Cytoplasmic processes arising from the apical region of the photocyte extend into the surrounding reflecting pigment cell
processes [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 6 OMITTED].
They consist of no more than two cells: a photoreceptor cell and a pigment cell
The study published in the journal 'Pigment Cell
and Melanoma Research' states that your genes along with exposure to sun has a great influence on the number and location of the moles on your body.

"This is transformative research because it provides new pathways for studying pigmentation and pigment cell
diseases," says study coauthor William Pavan, senior investigator in the Genetic Disease Research Branch at the National Institute of Health's Human Genome Research Institute, Bethesda, Md.
