The fact that the skin of the frog is capable of varying in colour, has been for some years known to German naturalists. The first account of the mechanism by which these changes are effected, appears to have been given by Professor Brücke, of Vienna, in 1852, and the subject has since been very carefully investigated by Dr. von Wittich of Königsberg, and Dr. E. Harless of Munich. All these observers describe the dark pigment as contained in stellate cells, each composed of a central part or…

Animal Color Changes and Their Neurohumors

The modern intensive investigation of the color changes in animals may be said to have begun with the publication in 1852 of Bruicke's elaborate monograph on the African chameleon, which brought to full development what may be called the purely nervous interpretation of animal color changes.

Nerve stimulation and the movement of melanin granules in the pigment cells of the frog's web.

The present work has been confined to the epidermal and dermal melanophores, and it is shown that fluctuating pituitary secretion is adequate to interpret all the accredited phenomena in adult amphibia, without invoking a direct innervation of melanophore.

The Pigmentary Effector System IV.--A Further Contribution to the Role of Pituitary Secretion in Amphibian Colour Response

It is legitimate to conclude that pituitary secretion is the main factor in regulating the chromatic function throughout the Amphibia as a class, and the interpretation of colour response here put forward for Amphibia can be extended to Reptiles and Fishes.

In this article, morphological color changes are discussed as physiological phenomena involved in the balance between differentiation and apoptosis of chromatophores, and changes in their morphology are discussed.

Argument on Neural Tumours and Their Allies

Several large swollen cells with homogeneous or finely granular cytoplasm and excentric nucleus with diffusely and finely chromatinic nuclei when not pycnotic are shown.

Zebrafish Endzone Regulates Neural Crest-Derived Chromatophore Differentiation and Morphology

The results suggest that enz is required relatively late in the development of all three embryonic chromatophore types and is normally necessary for terminal differentiation and the maintenance of cell size and morphology.
