Golgins are a family of coiled-coil proteins associated with the Golgi apparatus necessary for tethering events in membrane fusion and as structural supports for Golgi cisternae. Recent work has shown that golgins such as GM130, golgin-45 and p115 bind to Rab GTPases via their coiled-coil domains, and that GM130, rather than being part of a static structural matrix, is in dynamic exchange between the membrane surface and the cytoplasm. Golgins such as bicaudal-D1 and -D2 bind to Rab6, but… CONTINUE READING
