BACKGROUND Although the function of human melanocytes is well characterized at cellular and molecular levels, the mechanism of the regulation of the life cycle (proliferation, differentiation, and cell death) of human melanocytes is not fully understood. OBJECTIVE This study aims to clarify what factors are involved in regulating the life cycle of human… CONTINUE READING
