Localization of the BiP molecular chaperone with respect to endoplasmic reticulum foci containing the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator in yeast.

Almost all secreted proteins pass through the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), an organelle that is equipped to tolerate and/or degrade misfolded proteins. We report here that yeast expressing the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) concentrate the protein at defined sites in the ER membrane that are not necessarily enriched for the ER molecular chaperone BiP. We propose that these sites are Russell bodies, an ER subcompartment in which misfolded proteins are stored and can be targeted for degradation.[1]
