  • THERE are two types of pigmented cells in normal human skin, the junctional dendritic melanocyte and the intradermal melanosome-phagocytosing melanophage (Fig. 1). In contrast to the melanocyte and its contained melanosome synthesizing process which have been thoroughly investigated, the cellular physiology of the melanophage remains unknown despite recent advances in electron microscopy and gradient biochemistry. The two cells containing melanin appear similar under the light microscope but… CONTINUE READING
