Domains in the vacuole membraneYeast cells expressing GFP- and mCherry-tagged proteins that localize to reciprocal domains on the vacuole.Domains in the vacuole membraneEnlarge
Membrane contacts sitesEndoplasmic reticulum (ER), plasma membrane (PM), mitochondria (Mito), multivesicular bodies (MVB), chloroplast (chloro), peroxisome (Pex), and lipid droplets (LD).Membrane contacts sitesEnlarge
Possible mechanisms of nonvesicular lipid exchange between membranesA,B spontaneously exchange lipid between membranes without proteins.  C–G depicts a lipid exchange facilitated by proteins.Possible mechanisms of nonvesicular lipid exchange between membranesEnlarge
Reticulon levels determine the ratio of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) sheets to tubesThis image depicts cortical ER in yeast expressing Rtn1-GFP (green) and ssRFP-HDEL (red).  Cells missing Opi1 have more ER sheets than wt cells. Note that Rtn1-GRP is in tubules and edges of sheets and fenestrations.  Scale bars, 5 m.Reticulon levels determine the ratio of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) sheets to tubesEnlarge
