Cytochrome Pigments

  • #1
Hi,

Multilocular fat cells (brown adipose connective tissue) are pigmented by the cytochrome pigments in the mitochondria.

That is my text book states, but I don't understand what are cytochrome pigments?

And why they found in mitochondria?

And why they pigment multilocular fat cells?

Could someone explain? Simply pleas!

Thanks in advance!

Newborns and hibernating animals need heat. There is something called thermogenesis within mitochondrial membranes.

Follow along those lines and you should be able to figure it out.

As for the color of cytochromes, look closely at cytochromes in chloroplasts.
