EDEM1 reveals a quality control vesicular transport pathway out of the endoplasmic reticulum not involving the COPII exit sites.


Immature and nonnative proteins are retained in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) by the quality control machinery. Folding-incompetent glycoproteins are eventually targeted for ER-associated protein degradation (ERAD). EDEM1 (ER degradation-enhancing alpha-mannosidase-like protein 1), a putative mannose-binding protein, targets misfolded glycoproteins for… (More)
