Summary The present study attempts to localize pyruvate dehydrogenase activity in rat heart muscle by electron microscopy. The pyruvate and Mg2+ dependent reduction of ferricyanide was used as an indicator for enzyme activity. The reaction product, copper ferrocyanide, was found in the inner membrane, the intracristal and intermembrane spaces of mitochondria.
