The relationship of the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi complex in Tetrahymena pyriformis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and the closely connected, single dictyosomal Golgi apparatus of Tetrahymena pyriformis cells showed random distribution in the cytoplasm. Ribosomes were evident, and coated vesicles pinched off from the ER were seen. The membranes of the endoplasmic reticulum generally formed a tube-like structure, although after histamine treatment multiple, folded and circular structures were observed. The number of coated vesicles detaching from the endoplasmic reticulum increased as a result of histamine treatment.
