Involvement of Long Chain Fatty Acid Elongation in the Trafficking of Secretory Vesicles in Yeast

Members of the synaptobrevin/VAMP family of v-SNAREs are thought to be essential for vesicle docking and exocytosis in both lower and higher eukaryotes. Here, we describe yeast mutants that appear to bypass the known v-SNARE requirement in secretion. Recessive mutations in either VBM1 or VBM2, which encode related ER-localized membrane proteins, allow yeast… CONTINUE READING
