Progressive reorganization of mitochondrial apparatus in aging skeletal muscle of naked mole rats (Heterocephalus glaber) as revealed by electron microscopy: potential role in continual maintenance of muscle activity


Figure 3. Ultrastructure of mitochondria in skeletal muscle of six-month-old naked mole rat. (A) Cross section of muscle fiber. Small, isolated mitochondria and group of mitochondria, which ultrastructure is demonstrated at higher magnification in (B) is indicated by an arrow. (C) Longitudinal section of muscle fiber. Small, widely spaced mitochondria.
