Microscopy research and techniqueMicrosc Res TechComparative ultrastructural-functional characterizations of the skin in three reptile species; Chalcides ocellatus, Uromastyx aegyptia aegyptia, and Psammophis schokari aegyptia (FORSKAL, 1775): Adaptive strategies to their habitat.2104-211810.1002/jemt.23766The current investigation was planned utilizing SEM, histological, and furthermore cytokeratin immunohistochemical to give a full depiction of skin of three reptiles species; Chalcides ocellatus (Scincidae), Uromastyx aegyptia aegyptia (Agamidae), and Psammophis schokari aegyptia (Colubridae) captured from Egypt with various ecological environment. Our SEM results showed different scales covered epidermis of three reptile's species with diverse surface microstructure. Overlapped rhomboid scales with numerous lenticular sense organs with numerous pores and oberhäutchen layer with microridges in C. ocellatus. In U. aegyptia, scales were overlapped elliptical-shaped possess lens-like sense structure with several scattered pits and oberhäutchen layer with polygonal outlined cells. While in P. schokari aegyptia, smooth scales flattened with two large dome-shaped scale receptors/sensilla and lens-like sense structure, moreover polygonal-shaped micro-ornamentation in scale hinge joints were observed. Histologically, skin of three species had outer epidermis with stratum germinativum, stratum corneum (?-keratin, ?-keratin layer) capped by surface Oberhäutchen and inner dermis. Osteoderms were observed with dermis of C. ocellatus. There are marked variation within pigment cells types among examined species. Melanophores observed in dermal layer of C. ocellatus, while in U. aegyptia, three pigment cells in tegument dermis; melanophores, xanthophores, and iridophores whereas, P. schokari aegyptia had two forms of chromatophore cells (melanophores and iridophores) in dermis and few melanophores scattered between stratum germinativum cells. The highest cytokeratin immunostaining observed in epidermal cell layer of U. aegyptia aegyptia than two other species. Conclusion, dry scaly skin of reptiles reflects a great range of functional aspects and success to adapt with terrestrial life.© 2021 Wiley Periodicals LLC.KandyelRamadan

EcolUntangling the structural and molecular mechanisms underlying colour and rapid colour change in a lizard, Agama atra.2262-228410.1111/mec.15901With functions as diverse as communication, protection and thermoregulation, coloration is one of the most important traits in lizards. The ability to change colour as a function of varying social and environmental conditions is thus an important innovation. While colour change is present in animals ranging from squids, to fish and reptiles, not much is known about the mechanisms behind it. Traditionally, colour change was attributed to migration of pigments, in particular melanin. More recent work has shown that the changes in nanostructural configuration inside iridophores are able to produce a wide palette of colours. However, the genetic mechanisms underlying colour, and colour change in particular, remain unstudied. Here we use a combination of transcriptomic and microscopic data to show that melanin, iridophores and pteridines are the main colour-producing mechanisms in Agama atra, and provide molecular and structural data suggesting that rapid colour change is achieved via melanin dispersal in combination with iridophore organization. This work demonstrates the power of combining genotypic (gene expression) and phenotypic (microscopy) information for addressing physiological questions, providing a basis for future studies of colour change.© 2021 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.NicolaïMichaël P JMPJ0000-0002-9570-0311Evolution and Optics of Nanostructures Group, Department of Biology, University of Ghent, Ghent, Belgium.D'AlbaLilianaL0000-0002-2478-3455Evolution and Optics of Nanostructures Group, Department of Biology, University of Ghent, Ghent, Belgium.GoldenbergJonathanJ0000-0002-8832-6544Evolution and Optics of Nanostructures Group, Department of Biology, University of Ghent, Ghent, Belgium.GansemansYannickY0000-0001-5018-044XLaboratory of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium.Van NieuwerburghFilipF0000-0001-8815-5485Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium.Clusella-TrullasSusanaSDepartment of Botany and Zoology & Centre for Invasion Biology, Stellenbosch University, Stellenbosch, South Africa.ShawkeyMatthew DMD0000-0002-5131-8209Evolution and Optics of Nanostructures Group, Department of Biology, University of Ghent, Ghent, Belgium.engDryad10.5061/dryad.12jm63xwvJournal ArticleResearch Support, Non-U.S. Gov'tResearch Support, U.S. Gov't, Non-P.H.S.20210413EnglandMol Ecol92144780962-10830MelaninsIMAnimalsColorLizardsgeneticsMelaninsgeneticsPigmentationgeneticsAgamidaecolourcolour changegenestranscriptomics20210310202011192021031820213286020216226020213271735ppublish3377294110.1111/mec.15901REFERENCES, 2021</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>9.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>A new species of Sitana (Squamata: <b>Agamidae</b>) from the Deccan Peninsula Biogeographic Zone of India.</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Deepak V, Tillack F, Kar NB, Sarkar V, Mohapatra PP<br><font color=gray><i>Zootaxa, 2021</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>10.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Mitochondrial genome of <i>Diploderma micangshanense</i> and its implications for phylogeny of the genus <i>Diploderma</i>.</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Li Y, Wang Y, Bai Y, Lv Y, Xiong J<br><font color=gray><i>Mitochondrial DNA.
