How to use pigment in a sentence?

  1. Jennifer Glass:

    The big question, and a topic of active scientific debate, is whether the purple bacteria living on the ancient Earth had the ability to protect themselves from UV radiation well enough to inhabit vast expanses of the land surface, like plants do on the modern Earth, the spectral signature of the pigment would be much stronger if the pigmented bacteria covered the land surface.

  2. Saj Khan:

    Dr Homer said. The laser treats only the iris and does not enter the pupil or treat any portion of the inside of the eye where the nerves affecting the vision are located. The company is still in the fundraising stage but hopes to have completed clinical trials within several years. And the cost of turning your brown eyes blue ? Dr Homer says Stroma Medical would charge around $ 5,000( £ 3,120) for the procedure. Industry skepticism Industry reaction to the process has been muted. Ophthalmologists who deal with people's eyes, Dr Homer concedes, have every right to be skeptical for the simple fact they are dealing with one of the most sensitive organs in the human body. Saj Khan, an ophthalmologist at the London Eye Hospital, told CNN the treatment raised some red flags. ' The main concern with any procedure that involves releasing pigment inside the eye is that the pigment can clog up the normal drainage channels which can in turn cause the pressure inside the eye to go up, if that happens significantly enough, for long enough, it's how patients develop glaucoma.

  3. Christian Yates:

    Piebaldism is actually a disease, it's caused by cells in the early embryo failing to migrate correctly.... failing to get to the right place. The cells which we're interested in, that cause piebaldism, are called melanocytes and they're responsible for pigmentation of hair and of the skin. These cells start at the back of the embryo and they try to migrate round through the skin and cover the whole of the( embryo's) skin. When they fail to do that properly you tend to get regions of skin or hair which are lacking in pigment, often regions at the front of an animal. This is common in cats...... tuxedo cats, and it's also common in horses and pigs and even in humans.

  4. Michael Vecchione:

    This animal was particularly unusual because it lacked the pigment cells, called chromatophores, typical of most cephalopods, and it did not seem very muscular.

  5. Baader Bank analyst Markus Mayer:

    The pigment business is still operating in a really depressed environment.
