Thus, Compound Kuqin and total polysaccharide extraction could inhibit the cell apoptosis through increasing the ratio of Bcl-2/Bax, conjugation of Bcl-2/Bax homodimer and mitochondrial endomembrane to inhibit the changes in the permeability of mitochondria and affect the formation of macro-hole according to the mechanism of apoptosis (Watt et al., 2008; Clark et al., 2006).
Our data showed that a single dose of MeHg caused significant ultrastructural changes in the endomembrane system and mitochondria of the spinal cord in chicken embryos.

V-ATPase is a proton pump that acidifies the lumen of endomembrane organelles, such as lysosomes, endosomes, Golgi apparatus, and secretory granules and that is required for the entry of influenza virus into cells [33].
Protein synthesis of ZIKV proteins follows the endomembrane trafficking system in a similar fashion as to what happens with the host proteins up to the Golgi complex where glycosylation ends.

Iron treatment after the elevation of [[Ca.sup.2+]]i by preincubation with TG, a potent endomembrane [Ca.sup.2+]-ATPase inhibitor, also induces calcium release from internal stores.
The homogenate was centrifuged at 800 xg for 10 min at 4[degrees]C to remove cell wall debris and the supernatant was precipitated with 80% acetone at -20[degrees] C (three times) to obtain the protein intracellular fraction (IN) that includes endomembrane compartments and organelles.
