Figure 5

Transmission electron microscope analysis of WT (UVM11) and VMP1-deficient cells. (A) a WT cell. Note the electron-dense vacuoles, presumably autolysosomes (), the modestly sized starch granules and mitochondria (S and M, respectively; representative specimens), the well-defined and properly located nucleus (N), and the stacked thylakoid membranes (black arrows). (B) A Golgi apparatus from a WT cell. (C–D) Two mutant cells. Note the mostly clear vacuoles (), the often numerous and abnormally large starch granules, the enlarged mitochondria, and the Golgi apparatuses (G), at times only visible through their transport vesicles. (E) Close-up of Golgi apparatuses from a third mutant cell. Scale bars = 1 μm.
