Gene Family: Exocyst complex (EXOC)

Exocyst: The exocyst is an octameric protein complex involved in vesicle trafficking, specifically the tethering and spatial targeting of post- Golgi vesicles to the plasma membrane prior to vesicle fusion. It is implicated in a number of cell processes, including exocytosis and also cell migration and growth. [Source: Wikipedia]
