The cells that produce melanin are called melanocytes and are present in the bottom layer of the skin's epidermis, the middle layer of the eye, the inner ear, meninges, bones, and heart. The color of skin is regulated with the help of the pigment melanin. The pigment granules of melanocytes are transferred to adjacent epidermal cells through dendrites.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
