  • These lysines have been shown to form part of an interaction site with coatomer protein I (COP-I) [10], [13], [14].

  • The di-arginine motif has also been shown to directly bind to the coatomer complex.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Further evidence of the di-arginine motif binding to coatomer protein was provided more recently by key mutations made to the α and β subunit of COP I, which although led to the formation of the coatomer complex had lost its ability to bind to the di-lysine motif

  • Furthermore, Vid24p association with Vid vesicles was impaired when coatomer genes were mutated.

  • When SEC28 and other coatomer genes were mutated, FBPase degradation was defective and FBPase association with Vid vesicles was impaired.
