    • Thiol oxidoreductase (ERp57) promotes disulfide bonds
    • If a protein is missing a sugar, UGGT (UDP-glucose: glycoprotein glucotransferase) will add a sugar so CNX/CRT will promote formation of disulfide bond

  63. Between cis & trans is medial cisternae of Golgi where ________ occurs
  64. Two Models depect flow of lipids & proteins
    • Stationary Cisternae Model � shuttle vesicles bind & fuse
    • Cisternal Maturation Model � Golgi cisternae transform from CGN (with aid of ER vesicles) and accumulate specific enzymes. CGN transform to medial cisternae then trans cisternae Golgi network with new enzymes.
  65. Time elapsed fluorescence microscopy support maturation model
    Anterograde & Retrograde Transport
  66. Anterograde -
    vesicles from ER fuse with Golgi then plasma membrane
  67. Retrograde -
    • flow from plasma to Golgi to ER
    • Happens when a protein is made by two different polypeptides which have different post-translational modifications
  68. Golgi Apparatus/ER (rough) Protein Trafficking from ER to Golgi
    • Membrane-bound & soluble proteins must be directed to a variety of intracellular locations including ER, Golgi, endosomes, and lysosomes
    • Each protein has a tag for a particular vesicle
    • Tag may be amino acid sequence, oligosaccharide chain, hydrophobic domain
    • Membrane lipids may be tagged by phosphate group by a kinase
    • For each tag, we have a specific receptor
  69. Retrieval tags placed on proteins that should return to ER. Receptors on Golgi will bind to KDEL (Lys-Asp-Glu-Leu) or KKXX (Lys-Lys-any-any) and return proteins to
  70. Retention Tags
    RXR (arginine, any, arginine) tag is placed on protein and stays in ER
  71. Question: If proteins are returned to ER, why go to Golgi?
    This is a huge area of current biomedical research possible cure for many monogenetic diseases
  72. how can we retag proteins that lack the tag due to genetic mutation
    • genetic therapy � changing the DNA - difficult
    • so we are trying to retag proteins
    • They go to the Golgi to be tagged in order to return to the ER
  73. The key of life is in another area of research: how do sperm cells know which cell is an egg?
  74. Proteins of Golgi: Some have _________or _________ attached to proteins so they will remain or come back to Golgi
    retention or retrieval tags
  75. Proteins of Golgi: Specific proteins are
    integral proteins spanning the membrane (hydrophobic regions)
  76. Hydrophobic regions is a third way to keep proteins in
  77. Proteins will migrate from CGN to TGN until the thickness of membrane exceeds length of
    hydrophobic membrane-spanning domain

    mannose by 2 Golgi specific enzymes
  80. In TGN of Golgi are mannose-6 phosphate receptors (pH 6.4) where enzymes bind and packaged into transport vesicle...These vesicles form
    Early Endosome which bind to plasma membrane

    extracellular signals
  84. Secretory Pathways: 1967 James Jamieson & George Palade labeled amino acids and watched movement
    • After 3 minutes found in ER
    • After 7 minutes found in Golgi
    • 37 minutes into vesicles
    • 117 minutes vesicles discharge protein into extracellular matrix

    • After budding from TGN, secretory vesicles constantly move to cell membrane and
    • release proteins by exocytosis
  85. Experiment removed KDEL retrieval tag from ER proteins and they did not return to ER but were secreted. This is strong evidence for
    the existence and function of tags
  86. Vesicles wait around plasma membrane until signal response tells it to
    • fuse and release
    • Ex: release of insulin from pancreatic B cells OR release of zymogens (precursors of hydrolytic enzymes)
  87. Exocytosis
    • Release of cellular products destined for secretion (triggered by calcium or hormones)
    • Vesicles fuse with plasma membrane
    • Discharge contents
    • Inner surface of vesicle (lumen of ER and Golgi) become outer surface of plasma membrane
    • Addition of lipids and proteins to cell membrane
