    The unfolded protein response and endoplasmic reticulum protein targeting machineries converge on the stress sensor IRE1

    Diego Acosta-Alvear et al.
    The coordination of protein targeting to the endoplasmic reticulum and the unfolded protein response through the stress sensor IRE1 ensures quality control of the secreted and transmembrane proteomes.

    Arf1/COPI machinery acts directly on lipid droplets and enables their connection to the ER for protein targeting

    Florian Wilfling et al.
    The targeting of proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum to lipid droplets relies on surface modulation of the lipid droplet by the Arf1/COPI machinery.

    Two-step membrane binding by the bacterial SRP receptor enable efficient and accurate Co-translational protein targeting

    Yu-Hsien Hwang Fu et al.
    Single molecule microscopy combined with biochemical analyses show that a two-step lipid-binding mechanism of the SRP receptor balances the trade-off between speed and specificity during co-translational protein targeting.

    Multiple selection filters ensure accurate tail-anchored membrane protein targeting

    Meera Rao et al.
    Biochemical dissections show that the Guided Entry of Tail Anchored proteins (GET) pathway selects ER-destined tail-anchored proteins using at least two distinct molecular mechanisms, each recognizing a distinct physicochemical feature in the substrate.

    Efficient protein targeting to the inner nuclear membrane requires Atlastin-dependent maintenance of ER topology

    Sumit Pawar et al.
    Efficient targeting of membrane proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the inner nuclear membrane depends on GTP hydrolysis by Atlastin GTPases and their function in maintaining an interconnected topology of the ER network.

    Structures of the scanning and engaged states of the mammalian SRP-ribosome complex

    Rebecca M Voorhees, Ramanujan S Hegde
    Structures of the signal recognition particle before and after it captures a transmembrane domain suggest how it chooses, engages, and shields its clients during membrane protein targeting to the endoplasmic reticulum.

    Targeting RAS-driven human cancer cells with antibodies to upregulated and essential cell-surface proteins

    Alexander J Martinko et al.
    Proteomics and functional genomics coupled to an antibody discovery pipeline revealed the influence of oncogenic RAS signaling on the cell-surface proteome and resulted in the discovery of potential therapeutic targets for RAS-driven cancers.

    Retro-2 protects cells from ricin toxicity by inhibiting ASNA1-mediated ER targeting and insertion of tail-anchored proteins

    David W Morgens et al.
    Using a suite of CRISPR technologies, unique chemical tools, and carefully designed biochemical and cell biological assays, we define the mechanism of action of Retro-2, an inhibitor of retrograde toxins.

    mRNA-programmed translation pauses in the targeting of E. coli membrane proteins

    Nir Fluman et al.
    Translation pauses occur in strategic positions to facilitate the production of properly folded membrane proteins in bacteria.

    Co-translational protein targeting facilitates centrosomal recruitment of PCNT during centrosome maturation in vertebrates

    Guadalupe Sepulveda et al.
    During centrosome maturation, pericentrin is delivered to the centrosome co-translationally by a microtubule- and dynein-dependent process, as pericentrin mRNA is undergoing active translation near the centrosome.
