Movie S1

A 250 second time lapse movie to show the dynamics of MERCs. U2OS cells stably expressing MERC reporter (green) were transfected with mitoRFP (Red). A YOKOGAWA spinning disk confocal microscope was used to perform live-cell imaging. Most of the contacts (green) are not very active. They usually stay at the same spots where they were first formed and occasionally make a small movement.
