An increasing number of human diseases have been attributed to mutations that result in the mistargeting of essential proteins. The signals responsible for the targeting membrane proteins in the biosynthetic and endocytic pathways are of particular interest to my laboratory. In addition to studying the basic cell biology of protein trafficking within the cell, we examine the trafficking and function of the proteins implicated in hemochromatosis, the most common hereditary disease of people of European ancestry.
