Background

BACKGROUND:Fat Free Antibody: Fat Free, also known as ANG2, was identified though a yeast two-hybrid screen using VP53. It is thought to be a structural and functional homolog of the yeast protein VPS51, a protein that together with VPS52, VPS53, and VPS54 form the Golgi-associated retrograde protein (GARP) complex that mediates the tethering and fusion of endosome-derived transport carriers to the trans-Golgi network (TGN). Similar to depletion of any of the VPS52, VPS53, or VPS54, depletion of Fat Free using RNAi impairs protein retrieval to the TGN indicating that Fat Free is missing component of the GARP complex in most eukaryotes.
