Modulation of melanogenic protein expression during the switch from euto pheomelanogenesis
Once melanin biosynthesis is completed to conduct either eu-or pheomelanogenesis
within melanosomes, they then move along dendritic processes and are transferred to surrounding keratinocytes in normal skin [26-28].
The switch between eumelanogenesis and pheomelanogenesis
is also the main factor whose mechanism has drawn considerable attention and is clearly complex (Barsh et al., 2000).
, vesiculoglobular bodies are incorporated into stage I melanosomes, while at stage II melanosome pheomelanin is deposited in the vesiculoglobular bodies.
