FBXO32 Links Ubiquitination to Epigenetic Reprogramming of Melanoma Cells

Investigators showed that MITF, the master transcription factor in melanocytes, controls ubiquitination in melanoma cells. They identified FBXO32, a component of the SCF E3 ligase complex as a new MITF target gene.

Anti-Melanogenesis Effects of Lotus Seedpod In Vitro and In Vivo

Researchers examined the effect of Lotus seedpod extract (LSE) on melanogenesis and the involved signaling pathways in vitro and in vivo. They showed that non-cytotoxic doses of LSE and its main component epigallocatechin reduced both tyrosinase activity and melanin production in the α-melanocyte stimulating hormone-induced melanoma cells.

Hair Graying with Aging in Mice Carrying Oncogenic RET

Researchers found that the microscopic appearance of hair follicles without melanocyte stem cells and descendant melanocytes as well as macroscopic appearances of hair graying in RET‐transgenic mice carrying RET oncogene were in accordance with previously reported results for hair graying in humans.
