Melanin-linked skin conditions: Breakthrough

Spots resulting from too much sun exposure and other effects of dysfunctional melanin production may become a thing of the past. Scientists have solved the structure of one of the three enzymes that g...

New breakthrough opens doors to treat melanin-linked skin conditions

(European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) Spots resulting from too much sun exposure and other effects of dysfunctional melanin production may become a thing of the past. Scientists have solved the st...

Scientists have created a ‘sunless tanner’ drug that boosts melanin in skin

Scientists hoping to harness melanin's protective power against skin cancer have found a way to help the skin produce more UV-absorbing pigments.

Fine-Tuned Microscopy Offers Breakthrough Resolution of Melanoma

Researchers have refined a classic Raman-based technique and succeeded in imaging the two dominant melanin molecules, which could lead to...

Chemists create the ultimate natural sunscreen

Chemists, materials scientists and nanoengineers have created what may be the ultimate natural sunscreen. They report the development of nanoparticles that mimic the behavior of natural melanosomes, m...

Skin color no shield against skin cancer

(Rush University Medical Center) The misconception that people with more pigment -- called melanin -- in their skin cells are protected from cancer-causing ultra-violet rays can be deadly. Melanoma, ...

Study replicates tanning response in cultured human skin

Investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) have developed a way of increasing pigmentation in human skin without the damaging effects of ultraviolet ...

Ulk1 over-expression in human gastric cancer is correlated with patients' T classification and cancer relapse.

Ulk1 is a key autophagy protein. Here, we tested expression and potential function of Ulk1 in human gastric cancer. Ulk1 mRNA and protein were significantly elevated in multiple fresh human gastric ca...

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...

A small-molecule activator induces ULK1-modulating autophagy-associated cell death in triple negative breast cancer.

ULK1 (unc-51 like autophagy activating kinase 1) is well known to be required to initiate the macroautophagy/autophagy process, and thus activation of ULK1-modulating autophagy/autophagy-associated ce...

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...

Autophagy up and down by outsmarting the incredible ULK.

Macroautophagy/autophagy initiation is finely regulated by post-translational modifications of key proteins, to comply with the fast kinetics of the cellular response to several stress stimuli. Phosph...
