Electron microscope autoradiograph showing radiographic leucine over elements of the rough endoplasmic reticulum. A few grains are also found over small, smooth surfaced vesicles of the Golgi complex. Image corresponds to part of Figure 3 in J. Cell Biol. 20:473-495. Image made available by James D. Jamieson and the Department of Cell Biology, Yale University School of Medicine.
Anesthetized animals were intravenously injected with 1-5 millicuris of DL-leucine 4,5-H^3 with a specific activity of 3570 mc/mM. At times ranging from 4 min to 15 hrs after injection the pancreas was removed and fixed in osmium tetroxide. Tissue was embedded in methacrylate, sectioned, and post-stained with uranyl acetate. Original 3.25 in. x 4 in. lantern slides were scanned at 600dpi. Original magnification x21,000.
