Dense tubular matrices in the peripheral endoplasmic reticulum (ER) 1

ID Number
5855

Description
Superresolution microscopy work on ER in the peripheral areas of the cell showing details of the structure and arrangement in a complex web of tubes

The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a continuous membrane that extends like a net from the envelope of the nucleus outward to the cell membrane. The ER plays several roles within the cell, such as in protein and lipid synthesis and transport of materials between organelles. The ER has a flexible structure to allow it to accomplish these tasks by changing shape as conditions in the cell change. Shown here an image created by superresolution microscopy of the ER in the peripheral areas of the cell showing details of the structure and the arrangements in a complex web of tubes. Related to images 5856 and 5857.
