Golgi inheritance in small buds of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is linked to endoplasmic reticulum inheritance.


According to the cisternal maturation hypothesis, endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-derived membranes nucleate new Golgi cisternae. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae offers a unique opportunity to test this idea because small buds contain both ER and Golgi structures early in the cell cycle. We previously predicted that mutants defective in ER inheritance also… (More)
