Signal transducing adaptor protein: Signal transducing adaptor proteins are proteins that are accessory to main proteins in a signal transduction pathway. Adaptor proteins contain a variety of protein-binding modules that link protein-binding partners together and facilitate the creation of larger signaling complexes.
Vesicular transport adaptor protein: Vesicular transport adaptor proteins are proteins involved in forming complexes that function in the trafficking of molecules from one subcellular location to another. These complexes concentrate the correct cargo molecules in vesicles that bud or extrude off of one organelle and travel to another location, where the cargo is delivered.
Adaptor hypothesis: The adaptor hypothesis is part of a scheme to explain how information encoded in DNA is used to specify the amino acid sequence of proteins. It was formulated by Francis Crick in the mid-1950s, together with the central dogma of molecular biology and the sequence hypothesis.
Adaptor-related protein complex 2, alpha 1: AP-2 complex subunit alpha-1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the AP2A1 gene. This gene encodes the alpha 1 adaptin subunit of the adaptor protein 2 complex found in clathrin coated vesicles.
