Figure 5. Movement of mitochondria in the superficial cortical fiber cells

Representative time series showing the dynamic movement of TMRE (up to 18.5 μm/min, shown in the box) in the superficial cortical fiber cells. The movement of the mitochondrion highlighted in the box appears to be bidirectional. Other faster movements are highlighted with arrows. This animation was reconstructed from 60 images of the superficial cortical fiber cells that were taken from the same z-plane for 12 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.
