Microtubule-dependent trafficking of connexons from Golgi to the plasma membrane (R-HSA-190840)

Species Homo sapiens


Through videomicroscopy, a saltatory transport of connexon vesicles along curvilinear microtubules from the Golgi to the plasma membrane has been observed (Lauf et al., 2002). Such a transport system has been described for similar secretory vesicles (Toomre et al., 1999).
