Estimation of subcellular organelle volume from ultrathin sections through centrioles with a discretized version of the vertical rotator.

Abstract

A method for the fast and efficient estimation of the volume (but not surface area) of subcellular organelles is presented. It consists of a rotator/coaxial-section approach based on the Pappus theorem and represents a discretized version of the vertical rotator where, instead of measuring intercept lengths, the points in distance classes are counted… (More)
