The sugar is sIRVed: sorting Glut4 and its fellow travelers.

This facilitates clustering of the IRV proteins into an oligomeric complex, which can then be distributed from the donor membranes to the IRV as a single entity with the help of adaptors, such as Golgi-localized, gamma-adaptin ear-containing, ARF-binding (GGA).
SNX18 is an SNX9 paralog that acts as a membrane tubulator in AP-1-positive endosomal trafficking.
Umeå, Sweden. In J Cell Sci, 2008
However, contrary to SNX9, which primarily acts in clathrin-mediated endocytosis at the plasma membrane, endogenous SNX18 localized to AP-1- and PACS1-positive endosomal structures, which were devoid of clathrin and resistant to Brefeldin A. Moreover, a gamma-adaptin recognition motif was defined in a low-complexity region of SNX18, and a complex of endogenous SNX18 and AP-1 could be immunoprecipitated after Brefeldin A treatment.
Traffic of endogenous, transduced, and endocytosed prolactin in rabbit lacrimal acinar cells.
Los Angeles, United States. In Exp Eye Res, 2007
In the present study, confocal immunofluorescence microscopy revealed that natively expressed PRL and over-expressed PRL co-localized with PRL receptors (PRLR); rab11, a marker for the recycling endosome; gamma-adaptin, a marker for the Golgi complex and trans-Golgi network; and rab7, a marker for the autophagic lysosomal apparatus.
Ubiquitin-binding proteins: similar, but different.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Essays Biochem, 2004
The smaller groups of UIM (ubiquitin-interacting motif), GAT [GGA (Golgi-associated gamma-adaptin homologous) and Tom1 (target of Myb 1)], CUE (coupling of ubiquitin conjugation to endoplasmic reticulum degradation), UEV [ubiquitin E2 (ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme) variant] and NZF (nuclear protein localization gene 4 zinc finger) domain-containing proteins appear to have more specialized functions.
Structural basis for recognition of acidic-cluster dileucine sequence by GGA1.
Tsukuba, Japan. In Nature, 2002
GGAs (Golgi-localizing, gamma-adaptin ear homology domain, ARF-interacting proteins) are critical for the transport of soluble proteins from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) to endosomes/lysosomes by means of interactions with TGN-sorting receptors, ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF), and clathrin.
