Two methods are described for measuring the mitochondrion-vesicle association seen by electron-microscopy in thin sections of the guinea-pig taenia coli. Both methods are based on comparisons of the observed distributions with predicted random distributions. It was found in control muscles that mitochondria were consistently nearer to vesicles than(More)
The ratio of cell volume to cell surface area (V/A) has been measured by electron microscopy, for the smooth muscle cells of the guinea-pig taenia coli. The extent of shrinkage which occurs during processing for electron microscopy has been estimated using Archimedes' principle. The corrected ratio of V/A is 0.8 μm which is lower than previously published(More)
