Figure 1

Differences in mitochondrial shape, the status of matrix, swelling, visibility of double membranes, fragmentation, branching and cristae depletion upon long term CSE exposure in BEAS-2B cells. BEAS-2B cells were exposed to various concentrations of cigarette smoke extract (CSE) for 6 months and subjected to EM analysis. Representative images of BEAS-2B cells exposed to: 0% CSE (control), 1% CSE, 2.5% CSE, 10% CSE, 12.5% CSE and -10% CSE. Scale bar indicates 2 μm and 1 μm (Top left).
