Abstract

TGN38 is a type 1 integral membrane protein which is predominantly localized to the trans-Golgi network [Luzio et al.,1990]. Indirect immunofluorescence in NRK cells using antibodies against TGN38 shows localization to cisternal structures representative of the Golgi complex. Neither cytoplasmic vesicles nor the plasma membrane are labeled (Fig. 1).
