translocon
The complex of proteins associated with the translocation of nascent polypeptides into the cisternal space of the endoplasmic reticulum. The translocon is a multi-functional complex involved in regulating the interaction of ribosomes with the ER as well as regulating translocation and the integration of membrane proteins in the correct orientation. Tram, signal peptidase and signal recognition protein are among the proteins associated with the translocon.
