This website fom Tachezy gives some general information about the mitosome, as well as some images.

The mitochondrial origin of mitosome is supported by (i) presence of two membranes surrounding these organelles, (ii) localization of proteins of iron sulfur cluster assembly machinery within these organelles (IscU, IscS, ferredoxin), (iii) targeting of proteins into the mitosome by means of N-terminal leader sequences with similar properties of mitochondrial leader sequences, (iv) FeS cluster assembly activity identified in mitosome-rich cell fraction.
