VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday starting Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 25, through Sunday Nov. 29, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience.
Studies on the structural organization of Golgi complex
Goigi complex is a multi-compartmental organelle involved in posttranslational modification and sorting of secretory proteins. We have characterized the distribution in Vero cells of three Golgi cisternal membrane proteins, Sialyltransferase (SialyIT, tansGolgi/TGN), galactosyltransferase(GalT, trans-GolgiffGN), and Nacetylglucosametransferase-l (GlcNAcT-I, medial-Golgi), during the process of Golgi disassembly and reassembly following the addition or removal of drugs. After 1 h nocodazole (microtubule depolymerizer) treatment, SialylT and GalT were found in scattered punctate structures that increased in number over time as less and less of these proteins were found perinuclearly.
