Golgi-to-PM transport

Roman S. Polishchuk, Alberto Luini, Alexander A. Mironov

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A detailed description of the structure and function of Golgi exit sites (GES) is given in Chapters 1.2 and 3.3. In this Chapter, the mechanisms of the cargo exit from the Golgi apparatus (GA) towards the plasma membrane (PM) will be described, while also considering the structure of the Golgi-to-PM carriers (GPCs) that are formed. Transport from the GA to endosomes and to lysosomes, and cargo sorting to the apical and basolateral PM surfaces in polarized cells are also discussed in separated chapters.
