If the v-SNAREs were missing in a cell, what would happen? :roll:

There would be no vesicular trafficking going on in the cell then, as SNAREs are used to mediate membrane fusion.

Think about what goes on basically in the Golgi complex. Can this organelle be able to do its function without SNARES?
