Inner Structure Eukaryotic Cell Video

Inner Structure of a Eukaryotic Cell Video. Electron cryotomographic reconstruction of an Ostreococcus tauri cell (a photosynthetic eukaryote). The three-dimensional reconstruction of a single cell is shown slice-by-slice, from which the segmented model emerges in a second pass. After the various subcellular organelles are identified, the substructure of first the Golgi body and then the mitochondrion are shown in isolation, including the position and shape of the cristae junctions.
