The endoplasmic reticulum.


The endoplasmic reticulum.

Ed. by Susan Ferro-Novick, Tom A. Rapoport and Randy Schekman.

Cold Spring Harbor Lab. Press


328 pages




The 21 contributions in this volume review current understanding of the cell biology underlying protein-folding homeostasis in the endoplasmic reticulum, the mammalian endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation system, and factors regulating the structure of the endoplasmic reticulum. Several chapters describe the mechanism by which coat complexes facilitate vesicle budding from the endoplasmic reticulum and with retrograde traffic from the Golgi back to the endoplasmic reticulum. Other topics include disulfide bond formation, lipid transport, n-linked protein glycosylation, insertion of tail-anchored membrane proteins, and how viruses use the endoplasmic reticulum for entry and replication.
