Formation of the browning pigment melanin decoded

Melanin is a pigment which is present in almost all life forms and that determines hair and skin color in humans. It helps insects protect themselves against the effects of pathogenic microorganisms a...

The C9orf72 protein interacts with Rab1a and the ULK1 complex to regulate initiation of autophagy

A GGGGCC hexanucleotide repeat expansion in the C9orf72 gene is the most common genetic cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia (C9ALS/FTD). C9orf72 encodes two C9orf72 prot...

Nontoxic Battery Promising for Ingestible Devices

(MedPage Today) -- Researchers turn to melanin as power source

Edible battery could power medical devices of the future

Future biomedical devices may find their source of power from biodegradable battery pills. Developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in the US, the edible battery is made from natu...

Edible, melanin-based battery introduced by scientists for medical devices

A digestible, non-toxic battery that can power 5-milliwatt ingestible medical devices for up to 18 hours has been unveiled by -More- 

Battery you can swallow could enable future ingestible medical devices

Non-toxic, edible batteries could one day power ingestible devices for diagnosing and treating disease. One team reports new progress toward that goal with their batteries made with melanin pigments, ...

Synthetic Dye and Pigment Global Market Briefing Report 2017Including: Synthetic Pigments and Synthetic Dye Prices from USD $750

Dye is a colored substance that has an affinity to the substrate to which it is being applied. Dyes are applied in an aqueous solution, and may require a mordant to improve their fastness on the fiber...

Fluorescent quantification of melanin.

Melanin quantification is reportedly performed by absorption spectroscopy, commonly at 405 nm. Here, we propose the implementation of fluorescence spectroscopy for melanin assessment. In a typical in...

Cuttlefish Ink Melanin Encapsulated in Nanolipid Bubbles and Applied Through a Micro-Needling Procedure Easily Stains White Hair Facilitating Photoepilation.

Photothermolysis of unwanted hair depends on the presence of melanin in the hair follicle as the chromophore, but is not effective in patients with non-pigmented, melanin-sparse hair shafts and follic...

Superior Performance of Polyurethane Based on Natural Melanin Nanoparticles.

Melanin, a kind of well-known multifunctional biomacromolecules that are widely available in large quantities from a variety of natural sources. In this work, Polyurethane (PU) /melanin nanocomposites...

Does melanin matter in the dark?

In living cells, melanin pigment is formed within melanosomes, which not only protect the cells from autodestruction, but also serve as second messenger organelles regulating important skin functions,...

The Noncanonical Role of ULK/ATG1 in ER-to-Golgi Trafficking Is Essential for Cellular Homeostasis.

ULK1 and ULK2 are thought to be essential for initiating autophagy, and Ulk1/2-deficient mice die perinatally of autophagy-related defects. Therefore, we used a conditional knockout approach to invest...
