Abstract

Summary: Energy-dispersive X-ray microprobe analysis of electron-dense inclusions in hydrogenosomes isolated from the aerotolerant anaerobic protozoal human parasite , Bushby strain, indicated the presence of high levels of Mg, P and Ca. This suggested that divalent cation (e.g. Ca or Mg) accumulation by hydrogenosomes may be important in the regulation of intracellular ion concentrations.
