The assembly of lipid droplets and its relation to cellular insulin sensitivity.
Göteborg, Sweden. In Biochem Soc Trans, 2009
Lipid droplets grow in size by fusion, which is dependent on dynein and the transfer on microtubules, and is catalysed by the SNARE (soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive fusion protein-attachment protein receptor) proteins SNAP-23 (23 kDa synaptosome-associated protein), syntaxin-5 and VAMP-4 (vesicle-associated protein 4).
SNAREs and membrane fusion in the Golgi apparatus.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 1998
The best characterised SNAREs in the Golgi are Sed5p in yeast and its mammalian homologue syntaxin 5, both of which are predominantly localised to the cis Golgi.
