Biologists Discover New Mechanisms of Protein Transport in Plant Cells

13:00 EDT 16 Aug 2017 | ISAAA

Biologists led by Prof. Erika Isono from Konstanz University have discovered a previously unknown function of the SH3P2 protein, which has an important role in protein transport. Plasma membrane proteins that will be degraded are transported to the vacoule, the largest compartment in the plant cell. For this reason, the transport pathway of a prote...
