Term Detail
GO term:vesicle-mediated transport
Synonym: nonselective vesicle transport
Synonym: protein sorting along secretory pathway
Synonym: vesicle trafficking
Synonym: vesicle transport
Synonym: vesicular transport
GO id:GO:0016192
Alternate id: GO:0006899
Definition:A cellular transport process in which transported substances are moved in membrane-bounded vesicles; transported substances are enclosed in the vesicle lumen or located in the vesicle membrane. The process begins with a step that directs a substance to the forming vesicle, and includes vesicle budding and coating. Vesicles are then targeted to, and fuse with, an acceptor membrane.
