Background Information

Melan-A is a palmitoylated integral membrane protein of 118 amino acids with a short amino-terminal luminal domain and a longer carboxy-terminal cytoplasmic domain . The protein does not possess any detectable enzymatic activity and has not been linked to any of the numerous genetic defects that affect skin pigmentation. Melan-A is new immunohistochemical markers that can be used in the diagnosis of melanocytic lesions. (PMID: 15703212, PMID: 17445277)
