Structural details of dictyosomal pores

Please always quote using this URN: urn:nbn:de:bvb:20-opus-32155
  • Structural details of the dictyosomal pores in several plant cell types are described from tangential and cross sections of Golgi cisternae. Frequency distributions of the sizes of such Golgi pores are given and compared with the corresponding values of nuclear pores in the same cells. Golgi pore inner diameters are less homogeneously distributed and can be as small as 100 A or less. They are not simply cisterna I holes, but are often associated with centrally located electron dense granules or rods and with inner pore filaments. ThisStructural details of the dictyosomal pores in several plant cell types are described from tangential and cross sections of Golgi cisternae. Frequency distributions of the sizes of such Golgi pores are given and compared with the corresponding values of nuclear pores in the same cells. Golgi pore inner diameters are less homogeneously distributed and can be as small as 100 A or less. They are not simply cisterna I holes, but are often associated with centrally located electron dense granules or rods and with inner pore filaments. This organization, which is very common in dictyosomal pores in plant and animal cells, has some similarities with the structural architecture of nuclear envelope and annulate lamellar pore complexes. The particulate material associated with the dictyosomal pores shows spatial and structural relationship to cytoplasmic ribosomes. Possible modes of Golgi pore formation and some consequences of these observations for interpretation of nuclear pore structures are discussed.show moreshow less
