L'Oréal Research honored on the front cover of JID 10/20/2005






In August, the front cover of JID (Journal of Investigative Dermatology) displayed an image of the three-dimensional structure of a skin protease, and the September issue had immunofluorescence photos showing the location of transglutaminases in hair. While it is not surprising that photographs of proteins expressed in the skin and hair should be displayed on the front page of an international journal for research into skin biology, the facts that they came from two publications of L'Oreal research and that all these proteins are involved in epidermal differentiation are not only worth noting but also deserving of a few words of explanation.

L'Oréal researchers throw light on the hair greying process 21.06.2004






The colour of the hair, like that of the skin, is the outcome of a complex biological process: melanogenesis. Deep within the melanocytes, specialised pigmentation cells, three enzymes, tyrosinase, tyrosinase-related protein 1 (TRP1) and TRP2, act in conjunction to synthesise two types of pigment: phaeomelanin (red/yellow) and eumelanin (brown/black) whose blending in different proportions provides the entire colour range from the lightest to the darkest.
