A - nucesul ( ihwt nosueullc disnie ) B - nomroticahdi C - RER ( yuo nac ees dahttaec eisrbosom D) - ?? aym eb soosesmyl E - nggolyec gnelaurs

weenathon  I don't think A is the nucleus, It seems more like a lysosome with digested material inside. If you watch the video below it shows the relative size of the nucleus to the mitochondria - a nucleus would be MUCH bigger than the mitochondria +5  
weenathon  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK26858/ There are very similar looking pictures in this article, it must be a peroxisome +1

does noyaen know athw eht ustructre E is iptoinng ot?

thomasburton  Not sure looks like it might be free ribosomes or other such small cytosolic structure (I picked E too, thought B looked way too big!) +  
targetusmle  same here!! marked e thinking of it as a mitochondria +1  
msyrett  Glycogen Granules! They are not membrane bound and float freely in the cytoplasm. +4

Anyone find a problem with the stem? Seems to me that it doesn't help to state "however, his father's sister and children are unaffected". We already know the mutation runs in the mother's side, right? It seems like that statement doesn't discard nor confirm any inheritance pattern. Why would we care about the patient's father's side?

bbr  It just further helps to tell us this is mitochondrial. I guess they are doing us a favor. +
