Marisa Otegui is interested in structural and functional aspects of multivesicular bodies (MVBs) in plant cells. MVBs play a crucial role in both the endocytic and the secretory pathways of all eukaryotic cells, sorting proteins for degradation or recycling, downregulating receptors, and mediating the transport of proteins to the vacuole/lysosome.
