Blogxperiment: mitochondrial division, the graphics way

In the blogxperiment series part 1 the question was: What is the best way to summarize peer-review articles for an open web readership and transmit scholarly knowledge and literature? Here is the cartoon way, figure 1. out of the context of The Machines that Divide and Fuse Mitochondria review, written by Suzanne Hoppins, Laura Lackner, and Jodi Nunnari of Section of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of California, Davis.


You can read the legend in the rest of the post to check how much visual information you caught without textual context:

Figure 1
Mitochondrial division. (a) The mitochondrial division proteins are shown with functional domains
represented as boxes. (b) A schematic of the steady-state localization of the mitochondrial division
proteins in wild-type cells. (c) A model of the mechanism of mitochondrial division. Also shown, a thin
section electron microscopy (EM) analysis of yeast cells, showing mitochondrial constriction
intermediates (panel d). Electron microscopy analysis showing that purified Dnm1 assembles on and
constricts liposomes in vitro (panel e). The bars are 100 nm. Panels d and e are reproduced from The
Journal of Cell Biology (47), copyright 2005 The Rockefeller University Press. Abbreviations: arrowheads,
electron-dense structures that are found in association with mitochondrial constriction sites that may
represent Dnm1 spirals; B, insert B; CC, coiled-coil; GED, GTPase effector domain; GTPase, GTPase
domain; M, matrices of the mitochondria; middle, middle domain; NTE, N-terminal extension; TM,
transmembrane domain.
