Membrane traffic between the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus is a highly regulated process that uses distinct anterograde and retrograde pathways. These pathways link two organelles that together function as a dynamic membrane system specialized for the biosynthesis and sorting of membrane to be used throughout the cell. The nature and underlying biochemical control of membrane transport along these pathways is thought to be tied to a common regulatory system involving assembly and disassembly of cytosolic proteins on membranes.
