BACKGROUND Vear is a recently identified Golgi apparatus-associated protein. It has been suggested to be involved in vesicular trafficking between the Golgi and the vacuolar/lysosomal system. Proteins similar to Vear have also been shown to interact with activated ARF proteins (ADP ribosylation factor), and they are probably involved in membrane trafficking from the trans-Golgi network (TGN). We have previously shown that Vear is widely distributed in human tissues, with an especially high… CONTINUE READING
