Noninvasive mitochondrial imaging in live cell culture

Photochem Photobiol. 2005 Nov-Dec;81(6):1569-71. doi: 10.1562/2005-06-18-RC-580.


The observed distribution of mitochondria in a cell can vary with environmental influence, degree of differentiation and disease. Differences in the distribution of mitochondrial autofluorescence may be used to distinguish these different cellular states.
