Receptor synthesis and routing to the plasma membrane

Academic Article


  • Hormones and other extracellular proteins exert their effects on the cells that they influence by interacting with receptors in the plasma membranes of these target cells. For these interactions to occur, the receptor proteins must be efficiently synthesized, processed, and transported to the plasma membrane. This review summarizes the events and organelles involved in this process.
