The cytosol regions of the proteins are rich in basic residues which could not cross the hydrophobic interior of the membrane easily but can interact favourably with the polar groups of the membrane phospholipids. Following translocation, both membrane-bound and secreted proteins are transported through the membrane system. GGG Hj N- - - GG .

This is a key step in preparing the vesicle to fuse with its target membrane. Vesicle transport can be blocked by N-ethylmaleimide (NEM), an alkylating agent of sulphydryl groups. This implies that a protein, called the NSF protein (for NEM-sensitive fusion protein), must function in the fusion of vesicles and their target membranes. In fact, NSF is an ATPase and its activity is necessary for fusion. However, NSF requires the presence of additional cytosolic proteins before it can bind to Golgi membranes.
