Abstract

IN 1908 Regaud1 suggested that mitochondria were “corps lipoides”, and the following year2 he pointed out the general resemblance between the myelin of nerve fibres and the substance of mitochondria in their reactions to histological fixation and staining. The theory that mitochondria contain a relatively large amount of lipines held its ground for a quarter of a century.
