Abstract

In the central nervous system of Torpedo marmorata lipofuscin accumulates electively in the electric lobes. It has been found that the electric lobes have significantly lower superoxide dismutase activity than other areas of the central nervous system in animals of various ages and weights. These observations indicate that the lipoperoxidation action of the superoxide radicals or of their derived free radicals, due to superoxide dismutase deficit in these areas, might be related to lipofuscin accumulation.
