Cister, Cister, Cisternae

SISTER//CISTER?

Cisternae is the name of my sisters, but we are so close they are practically a part of me. (They actually are a part of me.) I usually have four to eight sisters depending on my unicellular house, but when I am in single-celled houses I could have sixty sisters. They are made of matrix proteins, but we are all made of cytoplasmic microtubules. In each house I notice three types of personalities (3 types of cisternae). The sisters who are nearest to the Endoplasmic Reticulum, I call them “cis“, the sisters who are near my center, “medial“, and finally, and the sisters who are far away from the ER, “trans“.
