Physiological responses of plants to salinity stress requires the coordinated activation of many genes. A salt-induced gene was isolated from roots of the wild tomato species Solanum chilense and named SchRabGDI1 because it encodes a protein with high identity to GDP dissociation inhibitors of plants. These proteins are regulators of the RabGTPase cycle that play key roles in intracellular vesicular trafficking. The expression pattern of SchRabGDI1 showed an early up-regulation in roots and leaves under salt stress...

Fluorescent tags constitute an invaluable tool in facilitating a deeper understanding of the mechanistic processes governing virus-host interactions. However, when selecting a fluorescent tag for in vivo imaging of cells, a number of parameters and aspects must be considered. These include whether the tag may affect and interfere with protein conformation or localization, cell toxicity, spectral overlap, photo-stability and background. Cumulatively, these constitute challenges to be overcome. Bluetongue virus (BTV), a member of the Orbivirus genus in the Reoviridae family, is a non-enveloped virus that is comprised of two architecturally complex capsids...

The gram-negative bacterium Coxiella burnetii causes human Q fever, a disease characterized by a debilitating flu-like illness in acute cases and endocarditis in chronic patients. An obligate intracellular pathogen, Coxiella burnetii survives within a large, lysosome-like vacuole inside the host cell. A unique feature of the Coxiella parasitophorous vacuole (PV) is high levels of fusion with the host endocytic pathway, with PV-endosome fusion critical for Coxiella survival within the host cell. This unit describes quantitating PV-endosome fusion by measuring delivery of the fluid phase endosome marker dextran to the PV using live cell imaging...

The endosomal sorting complexes required for transport (ESCRTs) machinery consists of four protein assemblies (ESCRT-0 to -III subcomplexes) which mediate various processes of membrane remodeling in the cell. In the endocytic pathway, ESCRTs sort cargo destined for degradation into intraluminal vesicles (ILVs) of endosomes. Cargos targeted by ESCRTs include various signaling molecules, mainly internalized cell-surface receptors but also some cytosolic proteins. It is therefore expected that aberrant trafficking caused by ESCRT dysfunction affects different signaling pathways...

Synaptopathy underlying memory deficits in Alzheimer's disease (AD) is increasingly thought to be instigated by toxic oligomers of the amyloid beta peptide (AβOs). Given the long latency and incomplete penetrance of AD dementia with respect to Aβ pathology, we hypothesized that factors present in the CNS may physiologically protect neurons from the deleterious impact of AβOs. Here we employed physically-separated neuron-astrocyte co-cultures to investigate potential non cell-autonomous neuroprotective factors influencing AβO toxicity...

Scientists have separated subcellular compartments based on differences in their densities by gradient centrifugation for decades. With the proper equipment and thoughtful experimental design, density gradients are a reliable method for enriching various intracellular compartments to assess their protein composition, morphology, or biochemical activity. While variations of this basic technique have been used for separating whole cells, endosomes, synaptic vesicles, and viruses, we have found it especially useful for resolving the compartments of the endocytic pathway...

Ubiquitination of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is an important intracellular signal that occurs upon EGF stimulation and controls EGFR trafficking at multiple steps, finally destining the receptor to lysosomal degradation. In this chapter, we give an overview of the biochemical methods to investigate EGFR ubiquitination.Firstly, we describe the in vitro ubiquitination assay, a method where, in the presence of the minimal ubiquitination machinery, the biological milieu for EGFR ubiquitination is reproduced in a test tube...

Long-term potentiation (LTP) and the process of memory formation require activation of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) and cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) pathways. Notably, recent evidence indicated that both cyclic nucleotides boost the production of amyloid-beta (Aβ) peptides. In particular, cAMP was shown to favor hippocampal LTP by stimulating the synthesis of the amyloid precursor protein APP, whereas cGMP was found to enhance LTP and to improve memory by increasing Aβ levels without affecting the expression of APP...

The S-acyltransferase zDHHC2 mediates dynamic S-acylation of PSD95 and AKAP79/150, which impacts synaptic targeting of AMPA receptors. zDHHC2 is responsive to synaptic activity and catalyses the increased S-acylation of PSD95 that occurs following action potential blockade or application of ionotropic glutamate receptor antagonists. These treatments have been proposed to increase plasma membrane delivery of zDHHC2 via an endosomal cycling pathway, enhancing substrate accessibility. To generate an improved understanding of zDHHC2 trafficking and how this might be regulated by neuronal activity, we searched for intramolecular signals that regulate enzyme localisation...

Wnt signaling is an important pathway that regulates several aspects of embryogenesis, stem cell maintenance, and neural connectivity. We have recently determined that opioids decrease Wnt secretion, presumably by inhibiting the recycling of the Wnt trafficking protein Wntless (Wls). This effect appears to be mediated by protein-protein interaction between Wls and the mu-opioid receptor (MOR), the primary cellular target of opioid drugs. The goal of this study was to identify novel protein interactors of Wls that are expressed in the brain and may also play a role in reward or addiction...

BACKGROUND: Sialic acid-binding immunoglobulin-like lectin (Siglec)-8 is a cell-surface protein expressed selectively on human eosinophils, mast cells, and basophils, making it an ideal target for the treatment of diseases involving these cell types. However, the effective delivery of therapeutic agents to these cells requires an understanding of the dynamics of Siglec-8 surface expression. OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine whether Siglec-8 is endocytosed in human eosinophils and malignant mast cells, identify mechanisms underlying its endocytosis, and demonstrate whether a toxin can be targeted to Siglec-8-bearing cells to kill these cells...

During infection Japanese Encephalitis Virus generally enters host cells via receptor-mediated clathrin dependent endocytosis. The trafficking of JEV within endosomes is controlled by Rab GTPases, but which Rab proteins are involved in JEV entry into BHK-21 cells is unknown. In this study, entry and post-internalization of JEV were analyzed using biochemical inhibitors, RNA interference and dominant negative mutants. Our data demonstrate that JEV entry into BHK-21 cells depends on clathrin, dynamin, and cholesterol, but not caveolae or macropinocytosis...

Shc family signalling adaptors connect activated transmembrane receptors to proximal effectors, and most also contain a sequence involved in clathrin-mediated receptor endocytosis. Notably, this AP2 adaptin binding motif (AD) is absent from the ShcD homolog, which also uniquely promotes ligand-independent phosphorylation of the Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) Receptor (EGFR). We now report that cultured cells expressing ShcD exhibit reduced EGF uptake, commensurate with a decrease in EGFR surface presentation...

Cells lining the proximal tubule (PT) have unique membrane specializations that are required to maintain the high capacity ion transport and endocytic functions of this nephron segment. PT cells in vivo acutely regulate ion transport in response to changes in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) to maintain glomerulotubular balance. PT cells in culture upregulate endocytic capacity in response to acute changes in fluid shear stress (FSS); however it is not known whether GFR modulates PT endocytosis to enable maximally efficient uptake of filtered proteins in vivo Here we show that cells cultured under continuous FSS develop an expanded apical endocytic pathway as well as increased endocytic capacity and lysosomal biogenesis...

The homotypic fusion and protein sorting protein complex (HOPS) is the first known tether complex identified in the endocytic system that plays a key role in promoting homotypic vacuolar fusion, vacuolar biogenesis and trafficking in a wide range of organisms, including plant and fungi. However, the exact influence of the HOPS complex on growth, reproduction and pathogenicity of the economically destructive rice blast fungus has not been investigated. In this study, we identified M. oryzae vacuolar protein sorting 41 (MoVps41) an accessory subunit of HOPS complex and used targeted gene deletion approach to evaluate its contribution to growth, reproduction and infectious life cycle of the rice blast fungus...

The endosomal protein-sorting machineries play vital roles in diverse physiologically important cellular processes. Much of the core membrane-sorting apparatus is conserved in evolution, such as retromer, which is involved in the recycling of a diverse set of cargoes via the retrograde trafficking route. Here, in an RNAi-based loss-of-function study, we identified that suppression of SNX12 leads to a severe blockage in CIM6PR (also known as IGF2R) transport and alters the morphology of the endocytic compartments...

Signal transduction of the conserved transforming growth factor-β (TGFβ) family signaling pathway functions through two distinct serine/threonine transmembrane receptors, the type I and type II receptors. Endocytosis orchestrates the assembly of signaling complexes by coordinating the entry of receptors with their downstream signaling mediators. Recently, we showed that the C. elegans type I bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) receptor SMA-6, part of the TGFβ family, is recycled through the retromer complex while the type II receptor, DAF-4 is recycled in a retromer-independent, ARF-6 dependent manner...

Internalization of proteins from the plasma membrane (PM) allows for cell-surface composition regulation, signaling network modulation, and nutrient uptake. Clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) is a major internalization route for PM proteins. During CME, endocytic adaptor proteins bind cargos at the cell surface and link them to the PM and clathrin coat. Muniscins are a conserved family of endocytic adaptors, including Syp1 in budding yeast and its mammalian ortholog, FCHo1. These adaptors bind cargo via a C-terminal ì-homology domain (ìHD); however, few cargos exhibiting muniscin-dependent endocytosis have been identified, and the sorting sequence recognized by the μHD is unknown...

Plants employ sophisticated mechanisms to interact with pathogenic as well as beneficial microbes. Of those, membrane trafficking is key in establishing a rapid and precise response. Upon interaction with pathogenic microbes, surface-localized immune receptors undergo endocytosis for signal transduction and activity regulation while cell wall components, antimicrobial compounds, and defense proteins are delivered to pathogen invasion sites through polarized secretion. To sustain mutualistic associations, host cells also reprogram the membrane trafficking system to accommodate invasive structures of symbiotic microbes...
