Ral's engagement with the exocyst: breaking up is hard to do.


Small GTPases are key intermediates that operate at the crossroads of signaling and trafficking. During insulin-stimulated glucose transport, activation of the vesicular-localized small GTPase RalA leads to its engagement with the vesicle tethering exocyst complex, mediating the plasma membrane targeting of Glut4 vesicles. Activation of RalA is achieved via… (More)
