Figure 2

Photo shows typical surfaces of SR-BI transfected (TF) and non transfected (non-TF) Y1-BS1 cells. The non-TF cell has a smooth surface, patches of long, slender microvilli, and shows no surface colloidal gold particle representing SR-BI-V5 or -cMyc staining. In contrast, the TF cell has a disrupted surface consisting of vesicles and small vacuoles which are stained with a mixture of gold particles representing V5 staining (small gold) and cMyc staining (large gold). The small boxes identify potential V5/cMyc dimers, where small and large gold particles are in very close contact.
