Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cells are separated from their environment by lipid membranes. The presence of membrane barriers means that mechanisms for the transport of proteins into and across membranes must also exist. In bacteria these mechanisms allow processes such as nutrient uptake, cell to cell signalling and interaction and the targeting of toxins to host cells during infection. In eukaryotic cells, the membrane system is even more elaborate with the presence of compartments, the organelles, separating biological processes. The trafficking of membrane proteins is by virtue of protein targeting signals and is dependent on machineries that can recognize them at each membrane.

The current special issue will highlight some of the most recent research in this area and provide a collection of reviews, which summarize our current understanding of the trafficking of lipids and proteins into and across cellular membranes.
