Cell -free transfer of radiolabeled membrane protein from part-rough, part-smooth transitional elements of the endoplasmic reticulum to Golgi apparatus requires ATP (Balch et al.,1986). One ATP — dependent step is that of the budding of the transition vesicles involved in membrane transport (Paulik et al., 1988).
