Isolated mitochondria that have been quick-frozen, fractured and deep-etched show some space between the inner and outer membranes. Arcs of tubules, where they are tangentially fractured, show the helically arrayed zipper on the outer margin of the curved tubular cristae. A pair of particles can be seen on the cross-fractured tubules. These may be bound to transmembrane subunits. Such complexes are thought to represent the F1F0 synthases. TEM taken on 5/11/88 by C. Schroeder with Zeiss 10A operating at 80kV. Neg. 40,500X. Bar = 0.1µm. This image is suitable for qualitative analysis. There is a high resolution version of this image in the library (CIL:40504) which is available for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
