Lysosomes

ID #1286

I had a quick question about the addition of the mannose 6 phosphate. In one of our lecture slides, I have written down that it is the one excpeption to the rule. I am not sure what rule I am referring to. Do you have any idea?


Yes, I know what you were referring to. The previous slide had shown what modifications were happening to the carbohydrate trees on proteins coming through the Golgi. The exception to that pathway is a lysosomal acid hydrolase, which gets a mannose-6-P group added to it instead of going down that pathway on the previous slide.
