Abstract

Graphic abstract

SEC23, the core component of the coat protein complex II (COPII), functions to transport newly synthesized proteins and lipids from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the Golgi apparatus in cells for secretion. SEC23 protein has two isoforms (SEC23A and SEC23B) and their aberrant expression and mutations were reported to cause human diseases and oncogenesis, whereas SEC23A and SEC23B may have the opposite activity in human cancer, for a reason that remains unclear. This review summarizes recent research in SEC23, COPII-vesicle transportation, autophagy, and cancer.

Keywords: SEC23, COPII-vesicle transportation, autophagy, cancer
