Genes involved in regulating the melanocyte and melanoblast-melanocyte populations in the epidermis of newborn mouse skin.

Abstract

In the dorsal epidermis of both C57BL/10J and C3H/He mice, the number of melanocytes positive to the dopa reaction increased from birth to 3 or 4 days of age, and then gradually decreased and disappeared by 30 days of age. However, the number of melanoblasts plus melanocytes positive to the combined dopa-premelanin reaction remained constant until 3 or 4… (More)
