The eukaryotic cell must segregate its proteins into distinct cellular organelles for functioning and survival. Highly specific sorting mechanisms to identify and distribute the polypeptides of the various cellular organelles to their correct destinations must exist.
Our research focuses on three areas, our goal being to understand the proteins that are present in regulated cellular compartments and to elucidate the mechanisms by which proteins are targeted to these organelles and subsequently trafficked to and from the plasma membrane.
