    ..These results suggest that vesicle trafficking at the plasma membrane requires the activity of Yck protein kinases, and that the new AP-related complex may participate in this process. ..

    ..This study, therefore, provides evidence that the AP-3 complex functions in cargo-selective protein transport from the Golgi to the vacuole/lysosome. ..

    ..These results provide information about how the NP-C proteins are targeted to their sites of action and illustrate the possibility that defective sorting of the NP-C proteins along the endocytic route can alter cellular cholesterol. ..

    ..We provide evidence that manganese starvation is sensed within the lumen of the secretory pathway, whereas manganese toxicity is sensed within an extra-Golgi/cytosolic compartment of the cell. ..

    ..Sna2p is the first yeast protein in which two YXXØ motifs have been identified and both were shown to be functional at two different steps of the secretory pathway, ER exit and Golgi-to-vacuole transport. ..

    ..strategy was devised to isolate gene products that are required in the absence of the AP-3 mu chain encoded by APM3. One gene identified by this synthetic lethal screen was VPS45...

    ..Y31GTI34 motif, and Y31 in particular, our findings with structure-based amino acid substitutions in the mu chain (Apm3p) of yeast AP3 suggest a mechanistically distinct role for this subunit in the recognition of YXX phi-like sorting ..

    ..We propose that the endocytic traffic branches into two routes to reach the vacuole: a Rab5-dependent VPS pathway and a Rab5-independent AP-3-mediated pathway. ..
