Summary

The Structure of Mitochondria provides an extensive account of the structure of mitochondria. This book illustrates the variety of mitochondrial structure revealed by electron microscopy of intact cells.

Organized into nine chapters, this book begins with an overview of the application of electron microscopy to the study of the structure of cells and their mitochondria. This text then explains the short-term changes of the type revealed by phase contrast microscopy of living cells. Other chapters consider the rationale behind the procedures generally employed for the isolation of mitochondria and other sub-cellular components. This book discusses as well the important component of mitochondria. The final chapter describes the interesting similarities of mitochondria, chloroplasts, and bacteria and the bearing these have on the concept about the way in which the relationships between mitochondria and the rest of the eukaryotic cell have evolved.

This book is a valuable resource for biologists, physiologists, and bacteriologists.
