High impact information on SGR2


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SGR2

  • These observations indicate that ZIG and SGR2 are involved in the formation and function of the vacuole, a notion supported by the results of subcellular analysis of the sgr2 and zig mutants with electron microscopy [2].
