LMB 365 – Day 53

Liz Miller’s lab in the Cell Biology Division uses yeast cells to study the fundamental mechanisms of transport between cellular organelles. Electron microscopy is employed to observe how organelle membranes reshape into transporters called vesicles and travel to their destination. This image on day 53 of #LMB365 is a glimpse inside a cell of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, with the nucleus in the middle, endoplasmic reticulum cisternas following the cell contour and through the cytoplasm, some lipid reservoirs called lipid droplets and thousands of ribosomes crowding the cytoplasm while synthesising proteins.
