There are only scattered data available on molecular aspects of vesicle trafficking in protozoa, notably in ciliates. In this context, proteins of paramount interest are the so-called SNARE proteins (soluble NSF attachment protein receptor; NSF=N-ethylmaleimide ~ensitive factor). They are positioned on opposite membranes; together with some other proteins… CONTINUE READING
