I am considering the transport of protein from ER to Golgi, and have read that this involves the COPII protein coat. I have also read that this is a form of anterograde transport, and elsewhere that kinesins are responsible for anterograde transport as they move from the negative to positive (outside) poles of the microtubules.
Thus it seemed to me that the kjnesins carry the COPII vesicles carrying proteins from ER to Golgi.
However a Google search of the terms 'kinesins' and 'COPII' together did not seem to yield anything about kinesins carrying COPII.
On the other hand in this article it links COPII with dynsctjn, which I have not heard of before.
Does someone know the link between COPI and COPII transport, and/or retrograde and anterograde transport, with the microtubule motor proteins kinesin and dynein? Where do dynectins come into this? Do they bind the vesicle to the dynein or are they a different type of motor protein? If it is the first case, then why is this transport termed anterograde if it does not use kinesins? Are the terms anterograde and retrograde not directly related to kinesin/dyneins use?
