Abstract

The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an extremely plastic and dynamic organelle. Its size and shape can undergo drastic changes to meet changing demands for ER-related functions, or as a response to drugs or pathogens. Because of the ER's key functions in protein and lipid synthesis, this organelle is a hotbed of detailed molecular analysis.
