Table 1 Determinations of the parameters employed for quantification of mitochondrial alterations in neurites and nerve cell somata

From: The type of Aβ-related neuronal degeneration differs between amyloid precursor protein (APP23) and amyloid β-peptide (APP48) transgenic mice

Percentage of altered mitochondria in nerve cell somata = area of altered mitochondria within nerve cell somata area of all mitochondria within nerve cell somata × 100
Percentage of altered mitochondria in neurites (axons and dendrites) = area of altered mitochondria within neurites × 100 area of all mitochondria within neurites
Mitochondrial volume density in the nerve cell somata = area of all mitochondria within nerve cell somata × 100 area of nerve cell somata
Mitochondrial volume density in neurites = area of all mitochondria within neurites × 100 area of neurites
Volume density of altered mitochondria in the nerve cell somata = area of altered mitochondria within nerve cell somata × 100 area of nerve cell somata
Volume density of altered mitochondria in neurites = area of altered mitchondria within neurites × 100 area of neurites
