Lipid‐dependent coupling of secretory cargo sorting and trafficking at the trans‐Golgi network


In eukaryotic cells, the trans‐Golgi network (TGN) serves as a platform for secretory cargo sorting and trafficking. In recent years, it has become evident that a complex network of lipid–lipid and lipid–protein interactions contributes to these key functions. This review addresses the role of lipids at the TGN with a particular emphasis on sphingolipids and diacylglycerol. We further highlight how these lipids couple secretory cargo sorting and trafficking for spatiotemporal coordination of protein transport to the plasma membrane.

This review is part of the FEBS Letters Special Issue on The Golgi.
