ABSTRACT E-cadherin is a cell-cell adhesion protein that is trafficked and delivered to the basolateral cell surface. Membrane-bound carriers for the post-Golgi exocytosis of E-cadherin have not been characterized. Green fluorescent protein (GFP)-tagged E-cadherin (Ecad-GFP) is transported from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) to the recycling endosome on its way to the cell surface in tubulovesicular carriers that resemble TGN tubules labeled by members of the golgin family of tethering proteins. Here, we examine the association of golgins with tubular carriers containing E-cadherin as cargo. Fluorescent GRIP domains from golgin proteins replicate the membrane binding of the full-length proteins and were coexpressed with Ecad-GFP. The GRIP domains of p230/golgin-245 and golgin-97 had overlapping but nonidentical distributions on the TGN; both domains were on TGN-derived tubules but only the golgin-97 GRIP domain coincided with Ecad-GFP tubules in live cells. When the Arl1-binding endogenous golgins, p230/golgin-245 and golgin-97 were displaced from Golgi membranes by overexpression of the p230 GRIP domain, trafficking of Ecad-GFP was inhibited. siRNA knockdown of golgin-97 also inhibited trafficking of Ecad-GFP. Thus, the GRIP domains of p230/golgin-245 and golgin-97 bind discriminately to distinct membrane subdomains of the TGN. Golgin-97 is identified as a selective and essential component of the tubulovesicular carriers transporting E-cadherin out of the TGN.

    • "Arf1p is thought to function at multiple locations to generate different classes of carrier vesicles in the secretory pathway and accumulating evidence suggests that different Arf1p-GEFs control its activation at each site (Kawamoto et al., 2002; Zhao et al., 2002; Garcia-Mata et al., 2003). Mammalian Arl1 has been shown to recruit different golgins to different subdomains of the trans-Golgi network to act on distinct cargo transport and suggested that the subcellular localization of GEFs is a crucial determinant for the spatiotemporal activation of ARFs (Lock et al., 2005). Consistent with previous findings, our data also suggest a model in which Arl1p can be activated by more than one GEF to play distinct roles in regulating the structure and function of the Golgi (Fig. 8).

    ABSTRACT: In yeast, Arl3p recruits Arl1p GTPase to regulate Golgi function and structure. However, the molecular mechanism involved in regulating activation of Arl1p at the Golgi is unknown. Here, we show that Syt1p promoted activation of Arl1p and recruitment of a golgin protein, Imh1p, to the Golgi. Deletion of SYT1 resulted in the majority of Arl1p being distributed diffusely throughout the cytosol. Overexpression of Syt1p increased Arl1p-GTP production in vivo and the Syt1-Sec7 domain promoted nucleotide exchange on Arl1p in vitro. Syt1p function required the N-terminal region, Sec7 and PH domains. Arl1p, but not Arl3p, interacted with Syt1p. Localization of Syt1p to the Golgi did not require Arl3p. Unlike arl1Δ or arl3Δ mutants, syt1Δ did not show defects in Gas1p transport, cell wall integrity or vacuolar structure. These findings reveal that activation of Arl1p is regulated in part by Syt1p, and imply that Arl1p activation, by using more than one GEF, exerts distinct biological activities at the Golgi compartment.

    ABSTRACT: The secretory pathway ensures the proper delivery of secreted proteins to the extracellular medium and of transmembrane proteins to almost all membrane cellular compartments. During their transport in the different compartments making up this pathway, newly synthesized proteins are modified and dispatched to their final destinations. So far, this pathway has mostly been studied in tissue cultured cells or yeast but recently, mutations in genes encoding key proteins of this pathway have been shown to lead to severe developmental defects in different model organisms. In this review, we describe how specific steps of epithelial, cartilage, notochord and brain development as well as body axis formation are controlled by the early secretory machinery illustrating that it is as crucial as transcriptional programs.

    • "This could point to an additional role of GARP in export from the Golgi complex. In this regard, interference with another tethering factor, golgin-97, has been shown to inhibit transport of the adhesion molecule , E-cadherin, from the Golgi complex to the basolateral surface of polarized epithelial cells (Lock et al., 2005). However , accumulation in the Golgi complex could also be secondary to impaired retrieval of factors that are required for exit from the TGN, as has been previously proposed for yeast GARP (Conibear and Stevens, 2000).

    ABSTRACT: The biosynthetic sorting of acid hydrolases to lysosomes relies on transmembrane, mannose 6-phosphate receptors (MPRs) that cycle between the TGN and endosomes. Herein we report that maintenance of this cycling requires the function of the mammalian Golgi-associated retrograde protein (GARP) complex. Depletion of any of the three GARP subunits, Vps52, Vps53, or Vps54, by RNAi impairs sorting of the precursor of the acid hydrolase, cathepsin D, to lysosomes and leads to its secretion into the culture medium. As a consequence, lysosomes become swollen, likely due to a buildup of undegraded materials. Missorting of cathepsin D in GARP-depleted cells results from accumulation of recycling MPRs in a population of light, small vesicles downstream of endosomes. These vesicles might correspond to intermediates in retrograde transport from endosomes to the TGN. Depletion of GARP subunits also blocks the retrograde transport of the TGN protein, TGN46, and the B subunit of Shiga toxin. These observations indicate that the mammalian GARP complex plays a general role in the delivery of retrograde cargo into the TGN. We also report that a Vps54 mutant protein in the Wobbler mouse strain is active in retrograde transport, thus explaining the viability of these mutant mice.
