Mitochondrial inclusions. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a mitochondrion showing crystalline inclusions (thick parallel rods) in the intermembrane spaces. These inclusions are characteristic of mitochondrial myopathies (muscle diseases). Mitochondria are organelles that produce energy for a cell. Defects in their metabolism can lead to muscle weakness and exercise intolerance.
