BP-80 is a type I integral membrane protein abundant in pea (Pisum sativum) clathrin-coated vesicles (CCVs) that binds with high affinity to vacuole-targeting determinants containing asparagine-proline-isoleucine-arginine. Here we present results from cDNA cloning and studies of its intracellular localization. Its sequence and sequences of homologs from Arabidopsis, rice (Oryza sativa), and maize (Zea mays) define a novel family of proteins unique to plants that is highly conserved in both… CONTINUE READING
