Single letter code for the C-terminal amino acid consensus, in animals and many plants, for proteins targetted to the endoplasmic reticulum. Other variants in some plants and other Phyla include HDEL, DDEL, ADEL and SDEL.
[amino acid sequence]
KDEL is a sequence in the amino acid structure of a protein which keeps it from secreting from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). It also targets proteins from other locations (such as the cytoplasm) to the ER. Proteins can only leave the ER after this sequence has been cleaved off. The KDEL sequence is responsible for re...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KDEL_(amino_acid_sequence)
