Pigment Organelles in Colour-Changing Crab Spiders

Crab spiders have the ability to change their body coloration reversibly, and this study has investigated the catabolism of their pigment organelles.

Silicon nitride membranes made by Silson were used for the Synchrotron X-Ray fluorescence process. The article by Figon et al was published by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in February 2021, and you can read the full article here!
