Figure 8

Cartoon of BBSome trafficking in Paramecium . Proteins are sorted from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the Golgi and from the trans-Golgi network to the base of the cilia either in a BBSome-dependent pathway (red arrow with a dotted line) or a BBSome-independent pathway (blue arrow). The K+ channel (purple trapezoid) is trafficked to the cilia via the BBSome-dependent pathway while the Cav channel (green oval) is sorted via the BBSome-independent pathway. Structural proteins (not shown) traffic through cargo interactions with the BBSome to the cilia.
