Caption

Melanocyte in basal layer of the skin, Illustration of a melanocyte (melanin-producing cell, bottom left with red nucleus) in the basal layer of the epidermis of the human skin. Melanocytes produce melanin (dark droplets), the pigment that gives rise to skin colours. Once produced, the melanin is transported to other skin cells via extended cell organelles known as melanosomes. The melanosomes are shown extending outwards here from the melanocyte.
