increased cerebral lipofuscin Gene Set

Category disease or phenotype associations
Type phenotype
Description Lipofuscin (age pigment) is a brown-yellow, electron-dense, autofluorescent material that accumulates progressively over time in lysosomes of postmitotic cells, such as neurons and cardiac myocytes. This term pertains if there is an increase in the accumulation of lipofuscin (also known as autofluorescent lipoprotein) more than expected for the age of the patient.
