Mitochondria and Cell Fate

Credit: Ryohei Iwata, Flanders Institute for Biotechnology

In these images, we can see human progenitor cells with their DNA-containing nucleus colored red after division and their mitochondria labeled in green. Human cells with fragmented mitochondria (top) became neurons (top), whereas those with tubular mitochondria (bottom) remained progenitors. Progenitor cells have their DNA-containing nucleus marked with blue while newborn neurons are marked in white.
