High resolution imaging of mitochondrial membranes by in situ atomic force microscopy

Author affiliations

Abstract

We used in situ atomic force microscope (AFM) to explore the exquisite structure of mitochondrial membranes under quasi-native conditions. The outer surface of the mitochondrial membrane is slightly rough and protein-embedded inside, while the inner mitochondrial membrane is smooth in the intermembrane space surface and protein-covered on the matrix side.
