SNARE complexes along the secretory and endocytic pathways in mammals

Slide 4: SNARE complexes along the secretory and endocytic pathways in mammals.

Schematic summary of known mammalian SNARE complexes and their sites of action along the exocytic and endocytic pathways. Potential v-SNAREs are indicated in red; the Sec1/Munc18 SM proteins for some SNARE complexes are marked in purple. Abbreviations: ER, endoplasmic reticulum;… Continue Reading

SNAREpin Assembly Drives Membrane Fusion

Slide 2: SNAREpin Assembly Drives Membrane Fusion

The fusion of two membrane compartments into a single continuous bilayer is fundamental for diverse biological processes including bacterial reproduction, gametes fertilization, virus internalization, and vesicular transport. Although all forms of membrane fusion share common mechanisms, different fusion events employ… Continue Reading
