Mitochondria and cellular secretion, with special reference to the adrenal cortex
MetadataShow full item record
Mitochondria are the sites in which the products of digestion are oxidized to provide the energy for cellular activities, such as contraction and secretion. In the adrenal cortex, the mitochondrial membrane is the site of hydroxylating enzymes essential in the synthesis of cortisone and other corticoids from cholesterol. Pritchard's silver is the recommended strain for use in quantitative studies of mitochondria in the adrenal cortex. [TRUNCATED]
