Correlation of ultrastructure and chemical composition of crustacean chromatophore pigment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Chromatophores, with chemically identified pigment, from the body and eyes of crustaceans were investigated ultrastructurally. Red carotenoid-, black ommochrome-, and white pteridine-containing chromatophores were found to have pigment granules of different morphological appearance.
