Melanosomes are synthesized in melanocytes and transferred to neighboring keratinocytes. However, the associations of melanosome uptake with the proliferation and differentiation of keratinocytes are not fully understood. We examined the associations of melanosome uptake with keratinocyte differentiation and proliferation. SV40T-transformed human epidermal keratinocytes (SV-HEKs) were treated with isolated melanosomes. The effects of melanosome uptake on the proliferation and differentiation of… Expand
