- A developmentally regulated rab11 homologue in Trypanosoma brucei is involved in recycling processesT R Jeffries
Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, Department of Biochemistry, London, UK
J Cell Sci 114:2617-26. 2001..Hence, TbRAB11 is present on endosomal structures that contain recycling cargo molecules and is under developmental regulation, suggesting a role in stage-dependent endocytic processes...
