  • Abstract 1. 1. Binding of riboflavin, flavin mononucleotide, flavin-adenine dinucleotide, 6,7-dimethyl-8-ribityllumazine, isoxanthopterin and pterin to melanosomes or natural and synthetic melanin has been studied in vitro . 2. 2. Binding of riboflavin to melanosomes or melanin is greater than the binding of the other compounds. 3. 3. The known distribution patterns of the fluorescent substances in the pigmented integuments of cold-blooded vertebrates are explained by the selective binding of… CONTINUE READING
