Mapping the pathway of protein secretion

The Golgi by-pass

One of the most important machineries in life is the secretion of proteins. Cells produce proteins and release them into the body. The Golgi complex lies at the heart of this process. At the Hubrecht Institute Catherine Rabouille and her research group investigate secretion to understand the paths proteins follow. They discovered that a protein called GRASP enables other proteins to take a shortcut.
