Quercetin (3, 3', 4', 5, 7-pentahydroxylflavone) is one of the representative flavonoids and is present in many vegetables and fruits. We studied the effects of quercetin on melanin production in hair follicle tissues from the buccal region of C3H/HeN Jel mice. These follicle tissues synthesized larger amounts of melanin than control tissue, with the amount dependent on the concentration of added quercetin. Additionally, the expression of tyrosinase protein was significantly enhanced in… Expand
Flavonoids enhance melanogenesis in human melanoma cells.
TLDR
It was inferred that a hydroxyl group bound to the phenyl group plays an important role in stimulating melanogenesis. Expand

Stimulation of Melanogenesis by Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid in Human Melanoma Cells
TLDR
It is found that NDGA is a novel potent stimulator of melanogenesis in human melanoma cells and can increase tyrosinase activity and de novo synthesis of melanin in human skin cancer cells. Expand
Molecular mechanisms of flavonoids in melanin synthesis and the potential for the prevention and treatment of melanoma.
TLDR
Although many flavonoid compounds are extremely promising nutraceuticals, their detailed molecular mechanism and their multi-target (simultaneously targeting multiple molecules) nature warrant further investigation before advancement to translational studies or clinical trials. Expand

Novel Quercetin Derivative of 3,7-Dioleylquercetin Shows Less Toxicity and Highly Potent Tyrosinase Inhibition Activity
TLDR
Novel 3,7-dioleylquercetin (OQ) exhibited a low cytotoxic concentration level at >100 µg/mL (125 µM), which is five times less toxic than native quercetIn conclusion, OQ might be a valuable asset for the development of novel skin-whitening agents. Expand

Quercetin enhances melanogenesis by increasing the activity and synthesis of tyrosinase in human melanoma cells and in normal human melanocytes.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in human melanoma cells and in NHEM, quercetin stimulates melanogenesis by increasing tyrosinase activity and decreasing other factors such as melanogenic inhibitors. Expand
Regulation of melanogenesis induced by 5-methoxypsoralen without ultraviolet light in murine melanoma cells.
TLDR
In murine melanoma cells 5-MOP stimulates melanogenesis by increasing activity and synthesis of tyrosinase, and the role of cyclic AMP and protein kinase C (PKC) is explored. Expand
PUVA (5-methoxypsoralen plus UVA) enhances melanogenesis and modulates expression of melanogenic proteins in cultured melanocytes.
TLDR
Results show that melanogenesis induced by PUVA is related to an increase in expression of tyrosinase, which suggests that PUVA favors the metabolic pathway of dark-eumelanins with high UV-protective properties. Expand
Inhibition of melanogenesis in response to oxidative stress: transient downregulation of melanocyte differentiation markers and possible involvement of microphthalmia transcription factor.
H(2)O(2) and other reactive oxygen species are key regulators of many intracellular pathways. Within mammalian skin, H(2)O(2) is formed as a byproduct of melanin synthesis, and following u.v.Expand
Antioxidative action of flavonoids, quercetin and catechin, mediated by the activation of glutathione peroxidase.
TLDR
It was proved that the intracellular antioxidative function of flavonoids requires the interaction with GSH-PO, at least in the cells expressing the enzyme, and its mechanism is discussed. Expand
Pigment content of cultured human melanocytes does not correlate with tyrosinase message level
TLDR
No correlation between tyrosinase message levels and melanin content is found, suggesting that post‐transcriptional regulation of tyros inase and/or other events determine the rate of pigment synthesis in human melanocytes. Expand
Quantitative assay of melanin in melanoma cells in culture and in tumors.
TLDR
A simple method has been developed for the quantitative fluorimetric determination of melanin and it is shown that the resulting solution has a characteristic fluorescence which is quantitatively related to the melanin initially present. Expand
Flavonoid quercetin sensitizes a CD95-resistant cell line to apoptosis by activating protein kinase Cα
TLDR
It is reported that HPB-ALL cells are normally resistant to CD95-mediated apoptosis, and quercetin is able to sensitize this cell line through a mechanism independent of its antioxidant properties, and the involvement of specific PKC isoforms in CD95 signaling is suggested, for the first time, to be confirmed.

Epidermal oxidative stress in vitiligo.
TLDR
Both an imbalance of the intracellular redox status and a significant depletion of enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants feature the epidermis of AVP, and represent a fingerprint of an abnormal oxidative stress leading to epidermal cell injury. Expand
