Mitochondrial crystalline inclusions, frequently found in mitochondrial myopathies, were analyzed by crystallographic techniques and computer-aided image processing. It could be shown that these structures were real crystals. There are two distinct types of crystal, which can be distinguished by shape, size, and pattern. So-called type I crystals are usually present in the intracristal space, whereas the type II crystals are preferentially located in the intermembrane space between outer and… CONTINUE READING
