Organism Eukaryotes

Method The simplest and most convenient method to measure organellar pH is through the targeted delivery of pH-sensitive spectroscopic probes.
Comments "It has been con firmed repeatedly that pH gradually decreases down the secretory pathway. The pH of the endoplasmic reticulum is around 7.2 or near neutral while the cis Golgi network is slightly acidic with a pH of approximately 6.7" (quote from PMID 22768925)
