Dancing spaghetti: the effect of BFA on the TGN [4b. Honorable mention]
Mardones, Gonzalo A.
  • Brefeldin A (BFA) is a fungal metabolite that reversibly blocks protein transport from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the Golgi apparatus. This effect is accompanied by a distinctive morphological change, the reversible collapse of the Golgi apparatus. The disassembly of the Golgi apparatus is accompanied by its dramatic tubulation, forming a network extending throughout the cytoplasm. While the content of the Golgi apparatus is redistributed to the ER, the content of the trans-Golgi network (TGN) collapses in the vicinity of the MTOC. This video shows the effect of BFA in an NRK cell stably expressing GFP-GMx33a, a protein associated to the TGN. To visualize tubulation with high temporal and spatial resolution, capture of images started after 10 min of BFA addition
