The synthesis and interactions of cytoplasmic membranes involved in the intracellular transport of secretory proteins have been investigated in a system of guinea pig pancreas slices pulse labeled in vitro with 14C-L-leucine. It is suggested that the membranes of the rough endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex were synthetized independently of each other while the membranes of zymogen granules derive from preexisting structures, probably membranes of Golgi origin.
