Protein Trafficking and Organelle Biogenesis in the Plant Endomembrane System: An Update
School of Life Sciences, Centre for Cell & Developmental Biology and State Key Laboratory of Agrobiotechnology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Shatin, New Territories, Hong Kong, China
One of our major research programs has been focused on studying the underlying mechanisms of protein trafficking, organelle biogenesis and function in the plant secretory pathway, which consists of multiple membrane-bound organelles including the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), the Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network (TGN), prevacuolar compartment (PVC) and vacuole. In this talk, I will present an update about our studies on the underlying mechanisms of 1) ER-Golgi protein traffic, and 2) PVC biogenesis and function in plants.Back
