(A) Appearance of the vacuolar cargo in early Golgi compartments marked with GFP-Vrg4 and in late Golgi compartments marked with Sec7-HaloTag. Cells were grown to mid-log phase, labeled with JF646, and imaged by 4D confocal microscopy. Prior to beginning the video, fluorescence from leaked cargo molecules in the vacuole was bleached by illuminating with maximum intensity 561 nm laser power for 20–30 s. SLF was added directly to the dish between the first and second Z-stacks, and then additional Z-stacks were captured every 30 s for 29.5 min. Images are representative time points from Figure 3—video 1. The top panel shows the merged images, and the other panels show the individual fluorescence channels for cargo, Vrg4, and Sec7. Scale bar, 2 µm. (B) Appearance of the vacuolar cargo in PVE compartments marked with Vps8-GFP and in the vacuole marked with Vph1-HaloTag. The procedure was as in (A), except that Z-stacks were captured every 60 s for 60 min. Images are representative time points from Figure 3—video 2. The top panel shows the merged images, and the other panels show the individual fluorescence channels for cargo, Vps8, and Vph1. Scale bar 2 µm. (C) Quantification of the percentage of compartments containing detectable cargo from (A) and (B). Confocal movies were average projected and manually scored for the presence of cargo in labeled compartments. For each strain, at least 26 cells were analyzed from four movies. The bars represent SEM. (D) Quantification of the percentage of the total cargo fluorescence present in early Golgi, late Golgi, and PVE compartments 10 min after SLF addition. The fluorescence for a compartment marker was used to generate a mask to quantify the corresponding cargo fluorescence. Data were taken from at least 26 cells from four movies. The bars represent SEM.
