Aims: Apocine secretion is Golgi-independent nonvesicular transport and secretory mechanism found only in metazoan eukaryotes. In contrast to well known exocytosis, it is poorly characterized noncanonical secretion. The aim of the project is identification of molecular determinants (genes and proteins) controling process of apocrine secretion and to uncover components of this novel signaling pathway.
