Many aberrant or unassembled proteins synthesized in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) are degraded by cytosolic proteasomes. To investigate how soluble glycoproteins destined for degradation are retrotranslocated across the ER membrane, we analyzed the fate of two IgM subunits, mu and J, retained in the ER by myeloma cells that do not synthesize light chains.(More)
The cysteine present in the Ig micro chain tailpiece (microtp) prevents the secretion of unpolymerized IgM intermediates and causes their accumulation in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). In principle, this can be the consequence of actual retention in this organelle or of retrieval from the Golgi. To determine which of the two mechanisms underlies the(More)
