Brown pigment characteristic of ageing. Found in lysosomes and is the product of peroxidation of unsaturated fatty acids and symptomatic, perhaps, of membrane damage rather than being deleterious in its own right.

lipofuscin

A pale yellow-brown pigment, made of free-radical-damaged protein and fat, which stains red with Sudan black and is PAS-positive. Lipofuscin granules accumulate in the cytoplasm of muscle and nerve cells, acting as a marker of wear and tear. They concentrate beneath the skin (forming so-called age s...
