A structure-function characterization of the ER membrane protein atlastin
The biogenesis and maintenance of the entire endomembrane system is dependent upon membrane fusion proteins. Mounting evidence indicates that the integral membrane GTPase Atlastin is a membrane fusion protein involved in ...
Characterization of Proteins Involved in Membrane Fusion- Atlastin and Munc18c
Membranes provide a barrier to cells and organelles, and allow the selective transport of molecules between compartments. Membrane fusion is essential for organelle biogenesis as well as trafficking of molecules between ...
Characterization of Structure and Function Relationship between Domains of the ER Membrane Protein Atlastin
The endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) is an important site for lipid synthesis, protein synthesis and transport. ER fusion is an essential process for its maintenance and biogenesis. Mutations in genes involved in this process ...
