As compared with other eukaryotic cells, plants have developed an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-Golgi interface with very specific structural characteristics. ER to Golgi and Golgi to ER transport appear not to be dependent on the cytoskeleton, and ER export sites have been found closely associated with Golgi bodies to constitute entire mobile units. However, the molecular machinery involved in membrane trafficking seems to be relatively conserved among eukaryotes. Therefore, a challenge for plant… CONTINUE READING
