SummaryThe three-dimensional structure and arrangement of mitochondria in the red, white and intermediate striated muscle fibers of the rat were examined under a field-emission type scanning electron microscope after removal of cytoplasmic matrices by means of the Osmium-DMSO-Osmium procedure.Beneath the sarcolemma, spherical or ovoid subsarcolemmal mitochondria show accumulations. The mitochondria are numerous and large in size in the red fibers, intermediate in the intermediate fibers, and… Expand
High -resolution scanning electron-microscopic studies on the three-dimensional structure of mitochondria and sarcoplasmic reticulum in the different twitch muscle fibers of the frog
TLDR
The three-dimensional structure of the mitochondria and sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) in the three types of twitch fibers, i.e., the red, white and intermediate skeletal muscle fibers, of the vastus lateralis muscle of the Japanese meadow frog was examined by high resolution scanning electron microscopy.

Scanning electron-microscopic studies on the three-dimensional structure of sarcoplasmic reticulum in the mammalian red, white and intermediate muscle fibers
SummaryThe three-dimensional structure of the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) in the red, white and intermediate striated muscle fibers of the extensor digitorum longus muscle of the rat was examinedExpand
Ultra-high-resolution scanning electron microscopic studies on the sarcoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria of the rat intrafusal muscle fibers. Part II: The extracapsular region.
The three-dimensional structure of the transverse-axial tubular system, sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) and mitochondria in the extracapsular region of the intrafusal muscle fibers of the rat lumbricalExpand
Mitochondrial regular arrangement in muscle cells: a "crystal-like" pattern.
TLDR
The results show that intermyofibrillar mitochondria are arranged in a highly ordered crystal-like pattern in a muscle-specific manner with relatively small deviation in the distances between neighboring mitochondria, consistent with the concept of the unitary nature of the organization of the muscle energy metabolism. Expand
The ultrastructural anatomy of the nuclear envelope in the masseter muscle indicates its role in the metabolism of the intracellular Ca+.
TLDR
It appeared that the I-band-limited transverse mitochondria participate with the column-forming mitochondria in building a rather incomplete mitochondrial reticulum of the masseter muscle, suggesting that nucleoplasmic calcium could contribute to balance the cytosolic concentration via pre-built anatomical routes.

Ultrastructure of motor nerve terminals in the anterior third of wistar rat tongue
The nerve terminals of intrinsic muscular fibers of the tongue of adult wistar rats was studied by using silver impregnation techniques, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and high resolutionExpand
The use of CalciumOrange-5N as a specific marker of mitochondrial Ca2+ in mouse skeletal muscle fibers
TLDR
The results show the loss of Ca2+ from mitochondria when ΔΨm is depolarised and demonstrate the usefulness of CaOr-5N to mark mitochondrial [Ca2+]m. Expand
The Evolution of the Mitochondria-to-Calcium Release Units Relationship in Vertebrate Skeletal Muscles
TLDR
A comparative look at the vertebrate subphylum shows that this specific association is only present in the higher vertebrates (mammals), and muscles in all other vertebrates rely on a less precise and more limited mitochondrion-CRU proximity. Expand
ULTRASTRUCTURAL ASPECTS OF THE MUSCLE OF THE ANTERIOR THIRD OF RABBIT TONGUE
The structural organization of the anterior third of adult rabbit tongue was studied using light microscopy and conventional and high resolution scanning electron microscopy. Histologically, theExpand
Role of Mitofusin-2 in mitochondrial localization and calcium uptake in skeletal muscle.
TLDR
The results indicate that Mfn2 promotes proper mitochondrial morphology, localization, and membrane potential required for optimal activity-dependent mitochondrial Ca(2+) uptake and buffering of the global myoplasmic Ca( 2+) transient in adult skeletal muscle. Expand

TLDR
Most of the mammalian striated muscle fibers fell into three types following a histochemical demonstration of oxidative enzyme reaction: Small red muscle fibers showed higher activities of oxidative enzymes, while large white fibers lower activities and the third type of fibers, "medium fiber" which were intermediate in size showed activities between red and white muscle fibers.

TLDR
The guinea pig soleus muscle is a convenient model for the study of slow‐twitch intermediate (STI) fiber ultrastructure and such fibers were compared with fast‐twitch red (FTR) and fast-twitch white (FTW) fibers from the vastus lateralis muscle. Expand
