The membrane surrounding a COPII-coated vesicle. COPII-coated vesicles mediate the vesicular transport of cargo such as proteins. COPII-coated vesicles are believed to bud from the endoplasmic reticulum be involved in the anterograde transport between the ER to Golgi and travel toward the Endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment, where they fuse and release their contents (anterograde transport). The COPII coat has five main functional components that are highly conserved in all eukaryotic cells.
