We have examined the process of membrane protein targeting in the polarized cells of the developing Drosophila melanogaster embryo. Human placental alkaline phosphatase (PLAP) is a glycosylphosphatidyl inositol-linked protein that accumulates at the apical membranes of mammalian epithelial cells. A chimeric construct composed of the transmembrane and… CONTINUE READING
