Mitochondrial Mysteries

Standard confocal versus super-resolution confocal microscopy of rat pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells. The ‘question mark’ mitochondria seen at the centre of the left image is actually three separate organelles. We are characterizing the mitochondrial network of various cell types and determining how this network is related to sensing changes in oxygen levels.
