Vesicular transport protein

A vesicular transport protein, or vesicular transporter, is a membrane protein that regulates or facilitates the movement of specific molecules (transporter substrates) across a vesicular membrane.[1] As a result, vesicular transporters govern the concentration of molecules within a vesicle.


Examples include:


There are multiple pathways, each using its own coat and GTPase.[2]
