The generation of dense granules within cultured human retinal pigment epithelial cells at senescence

Academic Article


  • Human retinal pigment epithelial cells routinely lose all forms of pigmentary inclusion when cultured. We report the repigmentation of a senescent population of cells. The pigmented inclusions were found to be neither melanin or lipofuscin but some form of dense membranous lamellae. © 1986 Springer-Verlag.
