Abstract
We have examined the fate of Golgi membranes during mitotic inheritance in animal cells using four-dimensional fluorescence microscopy, serial section reconstruction of electron micrographs, and peroxidase cytochemistry to tr ack the fate of a Golgi enzyme fused to horseradish peroxidase. All three a pproaches show that partitioning of Golgi membranes is mediated by Golgi cl usters that persist throughout mitosis, together with shed vesicles that ar e often found associated with spindle microtubules. We have been unable to find evidence that Golgi membranes fuse during the later phases of mitosis with the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) as a strategy for Golgi partitioning I, Zaal, K.J., C.L.

Furthermore, we s how that accurate partitioning is accomplished early in mitosis, by a proce ss of cytoplasmic redistribution of Golgi fragments and vesicles yielding a balance of Golgi membranes on either side of the metaphase plate before ce ll division.
