Volume fraction and ultrastructure of age pigment in the saccular epithelium of old mice.

Abstract

Age pigment in the sensory and supporting cells was a prominent characteristic distinguishing old saccules from young. However, the pigment was not distributed uniformly throughout the sensory epithelium but displayed cell-specific patterns of accumulation. The highest cytoplasmic volume density was in the old supporting cells followed by type I hair cells… (More)
