Fluorescent staining of subcellular organelles: ER, Golgi complex, and mitochondria.


PMID 18228364

Abstract

The ability to distinguish and identify specific subcellular compartments is essential to understanding organelle function, biogenesis, and maintenance within cells and to defining protein trafficking pathways. Fluorescent dyes and/or fluorescently labeled lipid derivatives can be used to identify ER, Golgi complex, and mitochondria. Specific conditions for labeling each of these compartments are described.
