    Medical Letter on Drugs & Therapeutics (Abstracts) 41(1058):68 (1999) PMID 10445020

  2. A comparison of 3H-cocaine binding on melanin granules and human hair in vitro.

    International Journal of Legal Medicine 110(2):55 (1997) PMID 9168320

    The in vitro experiments on the interaction of 3H-cocaine and melanin from Sepia officinalis confirmed the existence of drug binding sites on melanin granules. The results suggested that the binding of 3H-cocaine to melanin could be analyzed by assuming that the binding to the surface of pigment gra...
  3. Absence of graying of pinnal hairs.

    Archives of Dermatology 125(11):1589 (1989) PMID 2817925

  4. Implications of the phenotype of POMC deficiency for the role of POMC-derived peptides in skin physiology.

    Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences 885:419 (1999) PMID 10816678

  5. Premature greying of the hair is not associated with low bone mineral density.

    Osteoporosis International 10(4):290 (1999) PMID 10692977

    We report a further re-examination of this proposal in 52 prematurely grey-haired women from East Yorkshire who responded to an advertisement inviting them for bone densitometry. Thirty-five had no clinical or drug history that could influence bone density. All were Caucasian with a mean age of 52.8...
  6. Longevity and gray hair, baldness, facial wrinkles, and arcus senilis in 13,000 men and women: the Copenhagen City Heart Study.

    Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sc... 53(5):M347 (1998) PMID 9754140

    We found no correlation between the mortality and the extent of graying of the hair, or baldness or facial wrinkles in either of the sexes, irrespective of age. A single exception was observed in a small subgroup of men with no gray hair. They had a slightly, but significantly, lower mortality than...
  7. Ocular and testicular abnormalities in alopecia areata.

    Archives of Dermatology 118(8):546 (1982) PMID 7103523

    Ocular abnormalities similar to those usually found in patients with vitiligo occurred in nine patients with alopecia areata and one patient with poliosis. Exophthalmos, iris color change, discrete depigmentation, and, frequently, associated pigment hyperplasia of the choroid and retinal epithelium...
  8. Oral contraceptive use and risk of melanoma in premenopausal women.

    British Journal of Cancer 81(5):918 (1999) PMID 10555769

    We examined prospectively the association between oral contraceptive (OC) use and diagnoses of superficial spreading and nodular melanoma among 183,693 premenopausal white women in the Nurses' Health Study (NHS) and the Nurses' Health Study II (NHS II) cohorts. One hundred and forty six cases were c...
  9. Subcellular localization of GFP-myosin-V in live mouse melanocytes.

    Journal of Cell Science 112 ( Pt 17):2853 (1999) PMID 10444380

    We have expressed fusions of the green fluorescent protein with segments from two distinct myosin-V heavy chains. The expression patterns of constructs encoding four different domains of chick brain myosin-Va were compared to a single construct encoding the globular tail region of mouse myosin-Vb. I...
  10. Melanocortin receptors, red hair, and skin cancer.

    Journal of Investigative Dermatology Symposium ... 2(1):94 (1997) PMID 9487023

    Cutaneous pigmentation is a major determinant of the cutaneous response to ultraviolet radiation, and consequently of the risk of developing skin cancer. Over the past 10 years, several genes involved in melanogenesis have been identified, including the melanocortin 1 receptor gene. Recent work on t...
