Secretory proteins are exported from the endoplasmic reticulum in COPII vesicles. SNARE proteins-core machinery for membrane fusion-are incorporated into COPII vesicles by direct interaction with Sec24. Here we report a novel mechanism for sorting of the ER-Golgi Q-SNAREs into COPII vesicles. Different mammalian Sec24 isoforms recruit either the R-SNARE(More)
Plasmodium falciparum extensively modifies its chosen host cell, the mature human erythrocyte. This remodelling is carried out by parasite-encoded proteins that are exported into the host cell. To gain access to the human red blood cell, these proteins must cross the parasitophorous vacuole, a membrane bound compartment surrounding the parasite that is(More)
