Total Melanin

Differentiation and melanin expression is increased 2.5x after melanocytes are switched to CnT-PR-MD Melanocyte Differentiation medium.

CnT-PR-MD medium is specifically tailored to create the ideal environment for melanocyte differentiation. It is a fully supplemented, frozen, and ready to use culture medium. It does not contain or antibiotics / antimycotics and is free of PMA and TPA.

It differs from standard melanocyte media, which contain a mixture of signals and aim to provide both proliferation and melanin expression in parallel. However, the cells do not receive such mixed signals in vivo and are unable to provide both these behaviours optimally at the same time.

As a result of this focused formulation, CnT-PR-MD delivers 2.5x more melanin and increased dendricity compared with the proliferative CnT-40 medium.

CnT-PR-MD may also be used in conjunction with the CnT-PR-MH Melanocyte Homeostasis medium when conducting melanocyte whitening assays.
