Abstract

A method is described that allows the attachment of COPI vesicles and Golgi membranes to glass slides that can then be analyzed using electron microscopy (EM) and immuno-EM methods. Subpopulations of COPI vesicles can be bound selectively using recombinant golgins. Alternatively, COPI vesicles can be attached to prebound Golgi membranes. Marking these vesicles selectively with biotin allows their site of attachment to be identified.
