Term Information [More information on intermembrane transport]

Accession
GO:0046909
Name
intermembrane transport
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The directed movement of substances between any membrane of a cell, including the plasma membrane and its regions. Source: GOC:ai, GOC:pr, PMID:10671554
Comment
Examples of intermembrane transport are the transfer of glycolipids from the endoplasmic reticulum to other cellular membrane structures in which they reside, and the movement of proteins between regions of the plasma membrane (where one region could be the ciliary membrane).
