- This work explores how vacuolar sorting receptor (VSR) recognizes sequence-specific information on cargo proteins for targeting to the vacuole. Elucidation of the structures of the protease-associated domain of a VSR with and without its cognate cargo peptide, along with mutagenesis and functional studies, provides insights into how VSR recognizes its cargo proteins.
