Figure 4. Movement of mitochondria in lens epithelial cells

Representative time series showing the dynamic movement of TMRE (up to 5 μm/min, arrows) in epithelial cells. This movement appears to be multidirectional. Occasional branching of the mitochondria in lens epithelium is highlighted by a circle. This animation was reconstructed from 50 images of the lens epithelium that were taken from the same z-plane for 8 min.

Note that the slide bar at the bottom of the quicktime movie can be used to manually control the flow of the movie. If you are unable to view the movie, a representative frame is included below.


This animation requires Quicktime 6 or later.
Quicktime is available as a free download.
