Golgi inheritance: rab rides the coat-tails

Curr Biol. 2008 Sep 9;18(17):R743-R745. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2008.07.002.


A recent study describes a role for a Rab GTPase previously implicated in endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondrial inheritance and for a COPI coatomer subunit in the targeting of a type V myosin to the late Golgi in yeast.
