 Synonyms & Historicals
Melanocytes .
Melanocyte .
Mammalian pigment cells that produce MELANINS, pigments found mainly in the EPIDERMIS, but also in the eyes and the hair, by a process called melanogenesis. Coloration can be altered by the number of melanocytes or the amount of pigment produced and stored in the organelles called MELANOSOMES. The large non-mammalian melanin-containing cells are called MELANOPHORES. .

Melanocortin Receptor, Melanocyte .
Receptor 1, Melanocortin .
Receptor, MC1 .
Receptor, Melanocortin 1 .
Receptor, Melanocyte Melanocortin .
Melanocortin Receptor 1 .
A melanocortin receptor subtype found primarily in MELANOCYTES. It shows specificity for ALPHA-MSH and ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. Loss of function mutations of the type 1 melanocortin receptor account for the majority of red hair and fair skin recessive traits in human. .
Melanoma .
Malignant Melanomas .
Melanoma, Malignant .
Melanomas .
Melanomas, Malignant .
Malignant Melanoma .
A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo. Melanomas frequently metastasize widely, and the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and brain are likely to be involved. The incidence of malignant skin melanomas is rising rapidly in all parts of the world. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2445) .

Melanoma Antigen Recognized by T Cells 1 .
MART1 Antigens .
Melanoma Antigen Recognized by T-Cells 1 .
A melanosome-specific protein that plays a role in the expression, stability, trafficking, and processing of GP100 MELANOMA ANTIGEN, which is critical to the formation of Stage II MELANOSOMES. The protein is used as an antigen marker for MELANOMA cells. .
