The giant mitochondria of ctenophore comb-plates
The elongated cells which bear the continually active giant cilia of the combs contain numerous large mitochondria, up to 8 µ by 6 µ in size, which are filled with irregular tubular cristae. The ciliated cells are up to 100 µ long, but only 10 µ wide, and from their centrally situated nucleus can be traced a succession of stages, tentatively interpreted as the formation, growth, erosion, and final dissolution of mitochondria. Small ones occur near the nucleus in the region of the nuclear...[Show more]
