Project Area C: Formation And Transport Of Vesicles

Project area C deals with the formation and transport of vesicles. In an exemplary way, vesicular transport in eukaryotic cells is underlain by a modular organisation. Protein complexes such as vesicle coats or tethers must assemble and disassemble with cargo and also other functional elements for the very purpose of transport. Although each transport step, e. g. between the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi or between the Golgi and the plasma membrane, depends on its own specific protein repertoire, one also observes the shared usage of elements in different modules or submodules.
