Lysosome Transmission Electron Micrographs
Fig. 1 Reproduction of the first electron micrograph ever that indicated the existence of lysosomes (arrows), as originally published in 1956 by Novikoff and colleagues. The sample represents a liver fraction that also contains mitochondria (MT) and endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Reproduced from Novikoff et al. (1956)
