Degenerative Changes in the Mitochondria of Flight Muscle from Aging Blowflies


Mitochondria from flight muscle of aging blowflies, Phormia regina, were examined morphologically and biochemically with the electron microscope. An age-dependent degeneration of the mitochondria that is characterized, in part, by the reorganization of the inner membrane into myelin-like whorls has been found. The concentric rings increase in size and… (More)
