How the vacuole escrts its own proteins to their final destination

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Lysosomes (vacuoles in yeast) are master regulators of metabolism and protein turnover, but how they degrade their own resident proteins is unclear. Recently, multiple models have been proposed explaining yeast vacuole protein sorting, but the role of the ESCRT pathway was unclear. In this JCB issue, work from Yang et al. ( highlights how the ESCRT pathway localizes to the vacuole surface to execute protein sorting of its resident proteins.
