*The results of this research was sent out to the media as a press release.

● Previously, a three-component reaction-diffusion model (2) was proposed to explain interactions between pigment cells (1), that derived from laser ablation experiments in zebrafish.

● The model could then be applied to experimental results subsequently obtained after a decade from its original development.

● Interactions in the mathematical model (2) were interpreted on a molecular level and connected with the functions of molecular channels on different cells (3).
