Figure 2. Mitochondrion morphology during late stages of sporulation. A) Several mitochondria profiles are shown; note ‘teeth-like’ structures in the left most mitochondria (cross-section) and darkly stained, parallel structures in lower right mitochondria. B) A longitudinal section through a mitochondria. Note that there are two structures that run parallel to the mitochondria membrane, one structure is directly associated along its entire length with the mitochondrial inner membrane. C and D) In cross-section these two parallel structures are seen as two rows of multiple ‘teeth’. These teeth are generally located to one side of the mitochondria and occasionally around the entire inner membrane (D). A and B) Bars = 0.2 mm; C and D) bars = 0.1 mm.
