Supplementary Material

Legends for Supplementary Movies:

  • Movie S1: A time-lapse confocal microscopy movie of a neonatal myocyte expressing tRFP-SR, that follows the movement of multiple corbular SR boutons for 300 seconds.

  • Movie S2: A Time-lapse confocal microscopy movie of site I from Figure 3A of the neonatal myocyte expressing tRFP-SR showing the dynamic remodeling of the SR network.

  • Movie S3: An animation of change in tRFP-SR fluorescence over a 10 minute period from an adult ventricular myocyte.

  • Movie S4: A time-lapse TIRF microscopy movie of changes in SR morphology within the sub-sarcolemmal space of a neonatal ventricular myocytes expressing tRFP-SR.

  • Movie S5: A time-lapse confocal microscopy movie of a neonatal myocyte expressing tRFP-SR labeled with BODIPY FL-X Ryanodine that follows the movements of multiple RyR labeled corbular SR boutons for 300 seconds.
