PreMel synthetize melanin and form melanosomes. a, b Representative cellular pellets of ADSC, PreMel, and HEM and quantification of the respective mean gray value. c Melanin content was determined in ADSC, PreMel, and HEM. Pigment is present in PreMel but is significantly lower than in HEM. *P < 0.05 unpaired Student’s t test and Welch’s correction. df Ultrastructural analysis shows representative melanosomes in the cytoplasm of PreMel and a higher magnification in the inset. White arrowheads show the single and double membrane of melanosomes and mitochondria, respectively. gi Cytoplasmic HEM melanosomes. Scale bar = 250 μm
