We first observed the morphology of ER and found that in 150 mM group at 24 hours the morphology of ER partially swelled and in 150 mM group at 48 hours, fragmental morphology of ER appeared; it is the result of protein overaccumulation in the ER and intracellular environmental homeostasis was destroyed and then induced ER stress.
