No ESCRT to the melanosome: MVB sorting without ubiquitin

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

4 Scopus citations


Multivesicular bodies (MVBs) are critical for a variety of cellular functions ranging from lysosomal degradation to the budding of HIV. To date, delivery into MVBs has been dependent on the ESCRT machinery. However, analysis of a melanosomal protein has uncovered an alternative pathway for MVB sorting.
