High impact information on RET2

  • The corresponding RET2 and RET3 genes were cloned by complementation and found of encode the delta and zeta subunits of coatomer respectively [1].
  • Last, we show that Dsl1p interacts with the delta-subunit of the retrograde COPI coat, Ret2p, and discuss possible roles for this interaction [2].
  • The C-terminal hydrophilic peptide of GMT that is exposed to the cytosol binds to Ret2p, a subunit of the COPI coat [3].

Anatomical context of RET2

  • Mutant peptide derivatives that have lost a cluster of lysine in the vicinity of the transmembrane domain had reduced binding activity to Ret2p and the GMT with this sequence was delivered to the vacuole [3].
