Effect of pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) on melanogenic protein expression in murine B16 melanoma.


BACKGROUND Increased production and accumulation of melanin leads to various hyperpigmentation disorders. Melanin synthesis is regulated by melanogenic proteins such as tyrosinase, tyrosinase-related protein (TRP)-1 and -2, and their transcription factors. OBJECTIVE In this study, we assessed the effects of PQQ on melanogenic protein expression of murine… (More)
