...Rossella Venditti; Maria Chiara Masone; Maria Antonietta De Matteis Membrane contact sites (MCSs) are sites where the membranes of two different organelles come into close apposition (10–30 nm). Different classes of proteins populate MCSs including factors that act as tethers between the two...

... [ 14 , 15 ]. While the exact mechanism by which PI(3)P activates mTORC1 is unclear, it appears that the PI(3)P-mediated induction of mTORC1 activity requires the formation of membrane contact sites (MCS) between lysosomes and the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) [ 16 ]. Specifically, amino acid stimulation...

... they are not integrated in the classical vesicular trafficking routes, mitochondria exchange lipids with the ER at sites of close apposition called membrane contact sites. Deregulation of such transport activities results in several pathologies including cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. However, we are just...

...Yael Elbaz-Alon Membrane contact sites (MCSs) are areas of close apposition between the membranes of two different organelles that enable non-vesicular transfer of ions and lipids. Recent studies reveal that mitochondria maintain contact sites with organelles other than the endoplasmic reticulum...

... are subsequently delivered to other compartments by vesicular and non-vesicular transport pathways. Efforts are currently made to decipher how lipid transfer proteins (LTPs) work either across long distances or confined to membrane contact sites (MCSs) where two organelles are at close proximity. Recent findings...
