The information on the structural determinants that control the cellular distribution of P-type pumps is very scarce. However, recent experiments on the membrane targeting of the plasma membrane Ca2+ pump (PMCA) have provided interesting leads on the problem: they will be discussed in this succinct review. A general introduction on the biochemical properties of the PMCA pump will preface the discussion of the specific findings on the role of three distinct regions of the molecule in the targeting process.
