The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a multifaceted cellular organelle both structurally and functionally, and its cell cycle-dependent morphological changes are poorly understood. Our quantitative confocal and EM analyses show that the ER undergoes dramatic reorganization during cell division in cultured mammalian cells as mitotic ER profiles become shorter and more branched. 3D modeling by electron tomography reveals that the abundant interphase structures, sheets, are lost and subsequently… CONTINUE READING
