Protein Trafficking along the Exocytotic Pathway

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 74)


The exocytotic (secretory) pathway is composed of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), the Golgi apparatus, the endosomal/lysosomal/lysosomal system, the plasma membrane, which is separated into apical and basolateral domains in epithelial cells, and various vesicular and tubular intermediates that connect dynamically these membrane compartments. The signals and molecular mechanisms that govern the selective targeting of proteins to various compartments of the exocytotic pathway are the major focus of the laboratory.
