Contents Introduction to the pigmentary system -- Introduction to mutant pigmentary genes -- White spotting and progressive graying -- 'Albinism' and the failure of normal melanosome maturation -- Pigment-type switching -- Novel mouse pigmentary mutants generated by genetic manipulation -- Other species and other resources
Summary "Serving the needs of pigment cell biologists, cellular physiologists, developmental geneticists, researchers interested in melanoma and more, this new book brings to market a blend of new technologies and new insights in the fields of both pigmentation and mouse geneticists. It will include some comparative information on other organisms as well. The book is hailed for being written by some of the premier scientists in the field. These authors aim to present the molecular /cellular work in the context of phenotype and the interacting functions of genes that direct the development and function of one biological system. Interactions over details that can be found on the web are stressed. Overall the pigmentary systems provides a model for the study of all systems because it is a particularly well developed model"--Provided by publisher
