Method Abstract: "...a computer aided method was employed to generate three-dimensional ultrastructural reconstructions of chemically and cryofixed yeast cells."
Comments P.633 left column: "Due to different surface areas of organelles, however, the number of associations per defined organelle surface area was regarded as a more relevant measure for the affinity between two compartments (Table 2)." P.634 left column: "As can be seen from Tables 1 and 2, however, the method of fixation not only affected the shape of cell organelles as a result of alterations in surface area and volume, but also the number of organelle associations." P.634 right column top paragraph: "The calculated ratios of associations per organelle surface area (Table 2) demonstrated high association rates between lipid particles/mitochondria, ER/mitochondria and lipid particles/nucleus."
