This book is a compilation of symposia proceedings and lectures from the 13th International Pigment Cell Conference held in Tucson, Ariz, October 5 through 9, 1986. There are 135 contributors, including a number of international authorities in the field. The book is organized into nine sections or symposia. Each section consists of five or nine reports selected from a symposium. These nine sections include the structure and development of vertebrate pigment cells, melanogenesis, acquired pigmentary disorders, recent advances in the molecular genetics of pigment cells, human melanoma, control of color change (invertebrates), photoaging and pigmentation, melanin-concentrating hormones, a novel chromatophore-regulating hormone, immunology, and pigmentation.

The book also includes four special lectures presented at the conference: biochemical mechanisms of tumor invasion and metastases by L. A. Liotta et al, protein and active-site structure of tyrosinase by Konrad Lerch, some
