Part I focuses on proteins, including the Atg5-12 families, ubiquitin, p62, and the Golgi complex and autophagosomes in protein secretion.
An acrosome vesicle, derived from the Golgi complex, was observed near the nuclear envelope (Fig.
In SKM cells, the canonical ER distribution is not clear: cells may contain two major rough ER subcompartments, one without exit sites, localized in correspondence to the I-band, and a second responsible for export activity toward the Golgi Complex (GC), near the Z-disc.
Under transmission electron microscope, the ultrastructure of treated cells were not clearly distinguishable, the membranes of the mitochondrion, RER, Golgi complex were broken or loosened, and the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) was degranulated.
Key words that apply are organelles, secretion, enzymes, hormones, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi complex, vesicle, and plasma membrane.
We obtained samples from patients with known glycosylation defects associated with the proteins that are encoded by these genes: mannosyl ([alpha]-1,6-)-glycoprotein [beta]-1,2-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (MGAT2); [beta]-1,4-galactosyltransferase 1 (B4GALT1); solute carrier family 35 (CMP-sialic acid transporter), member A1 (SLC35A1; other designation: CMP-sialic acid transporter); solute carrier family 35, member C1 (SLC35C1; other designation: GDP-fucose transporter); component of oligomeric Golgi complex 7 (COG7); and ATPase, H+ transporting, lysosomal V0 subunit a2 (ATP6V0A2).
Vitellogenesis occurred through a process of autosynthesis, involving the combined activity of the Golgi complex, mitochondria and rough endoplasmic reticulum, and a process of heterosynthesis, in which extraovarian precursors were incorporated into oocytes by endocytotic activity at the basal region of the oolemma of the early vitellogenic oocytes.
