  • Hormone-induced pigment translocation studies were conducted at both the light and electron microscopic levels on cultured dermal iridophores from the Mexican leaf frog, Pachymedusa dacnicolor. Two distinct types of dermal iridophores were characterized which differed in (1) their in vivo locations, (2) their overall morphologies in vitro, (3) their responses to alpha-MSH, ACTH, c-AMP or theophylline, (4) their physical alterations of light, and (5) certain ultrastructural features.
