Some cells harbour specialised lysosome-related organelles (LROs) that share features of late endosomes/lysosomes but are functionally, morphologically and/or compositionally distinct. Ubiquitous trafficking machineries cooperate with cell type specific cargoes to produce these organelles. Several genetic diseases are caused by dysfunctional LRO formation and/or motility. Many genes affected by these diseases have been recently identified, revealing new cellular components of the trafficking… CONTINUE READING
