Endosome to Golgi retrieval of the vacuolar protein sorting receptor, Vps10p, requires the function of the Vps29, Vps30, and Vps35 gene products.
Following internalisation in an early endosome, the toxin is transported to the Golgi apparatus then to the endoplasmic reticulum where the dissociated A subunit inhibits protein synthesis by destroying the function of ribosomal RNA (28S subunit).
The transfer between the circulation in the bloodstream and the endosome and lysosome compartments (pH 5-6) was mimicked by a stepped release system.
Exosomes are vesicles of 30 to 100 nm in size originating in the endosomes. Almost all cells release exosomes or extracellular vesicles (EVs) and are present in all body fluids.
Caption: Figure 2: SLC15A3 is located at lysosomes, late endosome, and peroxisome.
The intracellular organelles (endosome, lysosome, peroxisome, endoplasmic reticulum, and mitochondrion) were labeled with Organelle Lights probes.
After attachment to cell surface receptors, influenza viruses are trapped by the endosome, where the envelope of the influenza virus fuses with the endosome membrane in an acidified condition; then nucleocapsids are released into the cytosol.
The conjugates bind with their receptors, followed by plasma membrane enclosure around the ligand receptor complex to form an endosome based on the receptor-mediated endocytosis mechanism.
After the above four processes, we obtained the benchmark dataset MSapo518 including 518 different apoptosis proteins covered in the following 8 main subcellular locations, cytoplasm, membrane, secreted, mitochondrion, nucleus, endosome, endoplasmic reticulum, and Golgi apparatus.
toll-like receptors (TLRs) located on cell surface or in the endosome, NLRs(NOD-like receptors) are cytoplasmic sensors and RLRs(RIG I-like receptors) recognize Viruses (Akira et al.,2006; Chen et al.,2009; Franchi et al.,2009).
RAB5B is a small GTPase that plays a role in early endosome formation and is required for the endocytic pathway that mediates the transport of clathrin-coated vesicles from the plasma membrane to the early endosome.
