Abstract

In the living cell, proteins are efficiently sorted to a whole range of subcellular compartments. In many cases, sorting specificity is mediated by short 'sorting signals' attached either permanently or transiently to the protein. At long last, a fairly coherent picture of the design and function of many such sorting signals is beginning to emerge.
