It may be concluded that the cytoplasm of acinar cells was filled with mitochondria, rough endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex in mid and late foetal age groups.
In the cells transfected with APP, this protein enters coat protein complex I (COPI) vesicles and undergoes retrograde transport from cis end of the Golgi complex back to the ER [76].
EM studies were revealed that the hyperglycemia (in diabetic rats) in high oxygen environments induced hypertrophy of endoplasmic reticulum and golgi complex, increased free ribosomes, degranulation and the margination of secretory granules in the beta cells (Hamaguchi et al.
Immunohistochemical staining of the complete myocardial tissue has shown weak cytoplasmic activity of eNOS in MVE cells with a poorly developed Golgi complex.
Fatal outcome due to deficiency of subunit 6 of the conserved oligomeric Golgi complex leading to a new type of congenital disorders of glycosylation.
The Golgi complex, which is responsible for the processing of proteins, has been implicated in the formation of BBs.
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.
In our patient, the neoplastic ceils exhibited an abundance of dilated PER, a prominent Golgi complex, a focal presence of microfilament, and mild nuclear indentation.
The organelles include: mitochondria, lysosomes, peroxisomes, golgi complex, smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum etc.
In the pituitaries from control rats at all time points after DEN administration, most of the granular cells were of the storage type, characterized by many secretory granules and an inactive appearance, with poor development of endoplasmic reticula (ER) and Golgi complex (Figure 1), as described in detail by others (13,37).
Ultrastructural examination of case 1 at low magnification showed spindle to oval-shaped cells that contained abundant, well-developed rough endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex.
sepioidea secretory cells showed differences in organelle abundance between the sexual maturity stages: at the juvenile and immature stages there are numerous mitochondriae, endoplasmic reticulum cisterns are thin and dispersed in the cytoplasm, the Golgi apparatus has a curved profile and actively secretes granules of different densities, whilst in the IV maturation stage (females) and reproductive individuals (males) secretory cells are almost depleted of mitochondriae, endoplasmic reticulum cisterns are dilated and well developed in a concentric fashion, and the Golgi complex actively secretes electron dense granules which are dispersed in the cytoplasm.
Several studies with antibodies that bind to the presenilins have indicated that they reside in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), where the cell synthesizes proteins, and in the Golgi complex, where proteins are often modified.
