About this book

Protein targeting is the study of how proteins synthesized in one part of the cell reach their ultimate destination. A cell may have to guide a protein through several membranes into one of its organelles, or take up or secrete a protein through its cell wall. This book is a preview of the latest research in this area, which has applications for understanding cancer, studying diseases that result from faulty targeting, and genetic manipulation of microorganisms to target useful proteins.


1. Targeting precursor proteins to mitochondria; 2. Protein transport to the nucleus and its regulation; 3. Targeting and import of peroxisomal proteins; 4. Protein translocation into the endoplasmic reticulum; 5. ER-Golgi membrane traffic and protein targeting; 6. Biogenesis of constitutive secretory vesicles, secretory granules and synaptic vesicles - facts and concepts; 7. Protein sorting during endocytosis
