Major Protein-sorting pathways in eukaryotic cells
Key elements for the Protein targeting events
1. Signal sequence: the amino acid sequence of
a protein that provides the information to
target the protein to a particular organelle.
2. Receptors for the s
Chapter 11 The Cytoskeleton and Cell Movement
The membrane-enclosed organelles discussed in the preceding chapters constitute one level
of the organizational substructure of eukaryotic cells. A further level of organization is
provided by the cytoskeleton
Chapter 9 Protein Sorting and Transport - The Endoplasmic Reticulum, Golgi Apparatus,
In addition to the presence of a nucleus, eukaryotic cells are distinguished from prokaryotic
cells by the presence of membrane-enclosed organelles within
