Video Views and Reviews: Golgi Export, Targeting, and Plasma Membrane Caveolae
Watters, Christopher
Cell Biology Education, v3 n3 p141-145 Fall 2004
In this article, the author reviews videos from "Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBC)" depicting various aspects of plasma membrane (PM) dynamics, including the targeting of newly synthesized components and the organization of those PM invaginations called caveolae. The papers accompanying these videos describe, respectively, the constitutive export of a mutant form of the vesicular stromatitis virus coat glycoprotein from the Golgi complex; the receptor-mediated, PM incorporation of the Na[superscript +]/K[superscript +]-pump; and the cell surface organization of caveolae. The author recommends these videos and the research article for intermediate and advanced undergraduates. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
