ABSTRACT The mammalian Vps10p sorting receptor family is a group of 5 type I membrane homologs (Sortilin, SorLA, and SorCS1-3). These receptors bind various cargo proteins via their luminal Vps10p domains and have been shown to mediate a variety of intracellular sorting and trafficking functions. These proteins are highly expressed in the brain. SorLA has been shown to be down regulated in Alzheimer's disease brains, interact with ApoE, and modulate Abeta production. Sortilin has been shown to be part of proNGF mediated death signaling that results from a complex of Sortilin, p75NTR and proNGF. We have investigated and provide evidence for gamma-secretase cleavage of this family of proteins.
We provide evidence that these receptors are substrates for presenilin dependent gamma-secretase cleavage. Gamma-secretase cleavage of these sorting receptors is inhibited by gamma-secretase inhibitors and does not occur in PS1/PS2 knockout cells. Like most gamma-secretase substrates, we find that ectodomain shedding precedes gamma-secretase cleavage. The ectodomain cleavage is inhibited by a metalloprotease inhibitor and activated by PMA suggesting that it is mediated by an alpha-secretase like cleavage.
These data indicate that the alpha- and gamma-secretase cleavages of the mammalian Vps10p sorting receptors occur in a fashion analogous to other known gamma-secretase substrates, and could possibly regulate the biological functions of these proteins.

    ABSTRACT: Sortilin, a Golgi sorting protein and a member of the VPS10P family, is the co-receptor for proneurotrophins, regulates protein trafficking, targets proteins to lysosomes and regulates low density lipoprotein metabolism. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression and regulation of sortilin in Alzheimer's disease (AD). A significantly increased level of sortilin was found in human AD brain and in the brains of 6-month-old APPswe/PS1dE9 transgenic mice. Aβ42 enhanced the protein and mRNA expression levels of sortilin in a dose- and time-dependent manner in SH-SY5Y(APP695) cells, but had no effect on sorLA. In addition, proBDNF also significantly increased the protein and mRNA expression of sortilin in these cells. The recombinant extracellular domain of p75(NTR) (P75ECD-FC), or the antibody against the extracellular domain of p75(NTR) , blocked the upregulation of sortilin induced by Aβ, suggesting that Aβ42 increased the expression level of sortilin and mRNA in SH-SY5Y via the p75(NTR) receptor. Inhibition of ROCK, but not JNK, suppressed constitutive and Aβ42 -induced expression of sortilin. In conclusion, this study shows that sortilin expression is increased in the AD brain in human and mice and that Aβ42 oligomer increases sortilin gene and protein expression through p75(NTR) and RhoA signaling pathways, suggesting a potential physiological interaction of Aβ42 and sortilin in Alzheimer's disease.

    ABSTRACT: The common neurotrophin receptor P75NTR, its co-receptor sortilin and ligand proNGF, have not previously been investigated in Natural Killer (NK) cell function. We found freshly isolated NK cells express sortilin but not significant amounts of P75NTR unless exposed to interleukin-12 (IL-12), or cultured in serum free conditions, suggesting this receptor is sequestered. A second messenger associated with p75NTR, neurotrophin-receptor-interacting-MAGE-homologue (NRAGE) was identified in NK cells. Cleavage resistant proNGF123 killed NK cells in the presence of IL-12 after 20 h and without IL-12 in serum free conditions at 48 h. This was reduced by blocking sortilin with neurotensin. We conclude that proNGF induced apoptosis of NK cells may have important implications for limiting the innate immune response.
