pigmentation
• hair tips are brown, the rest of the hair shaft white
• mice are distinguished from normal by 2 weeks of age
• coat color is rapidly lightened as hair lengthens
• moulting often creates a mosaic coat color pattern
• the lighter coat color is difficult to see on an agouti background

hearing/vestibular/ear
• pigmentation is abundant as clumps in older mice
• loss of endocochlear potential correlates with loss of pigment
• potential is reduced to 19-59mV in 30% of two age groups: 2.5 to 4 mo and 1-2 years
• loss of potential is correlated with loss of pigment with age

pigmentation
• pigmentation is abundant as clumps in older mice
• pigment is lost as mice age
• base of hairs become lighter as more pigment is lost with age, older mice are pale grey in color
• pigment loss is due to premature melanocyte death mediated by natural toxicity of pigment production

pigmentation
• the ventral hairs are substantially less pigmented than those of the dorsum
• although in early stages of hair growth the granules are round and relatively uniform in size, in later stages they are larger, more variable in size, and some clumping is found
• by the 9th day of a new hair growth cycle some hair bulbs are devoid of pigmentation and by 14 days very few follicles have active melanocytes
• variation in the amount of pigmentation present in one hair shaft versus the next
• variation in the size ans shape of pigment granules, with some instances of large masses of pigment in a particular hair shaft
• hair shafts have large clumps of pigmented granules predominantly restricted to the medullary regions
• decreased pigmentation in the hair shafts with age
