Synaptic vesicle recycling involves AP-2/clathrin-mediated endocytosis, but it is not known whether the endosomal pathway is also required. Mice deficient in the tissue-specific AP-1-sigma1B complex have impaired synaptic vesicle recycling in hippocampal synapses. The ubiquitously expressed AP-1-sigma1A complex mediates protein sorting between the(More)
We have recently shown that monodansylcadaverine labels autophagic vacuoles. Analysis of the mechanism underlying the labeling revealed that monodansylcadaverine acts as a lysosomotropic agent, being concentrated into acidic compartments by an ion-trapping mechanism, and as a solvent polarity probe, increasing its relative fluorescence intensity by(More)
The AP-1 complex recycles between membranes and the cytoplasm and dissociates from membranes during clathrin-coated-vesicle uncoating, but also independently of vesicular transport. The μ1A N-terminal 70 amino acids are involved in regulating AP-1 recycling. In a yeast two-hybrid library screen we identified the cytoplasmic prolyl-oligopeptidase-like(More)
Here, we describe altered sorting of sortilin in adipocytes deficient for the σ1B-containing AP-1 complex, leading to the inhibition of adipogenesis. The AP-1 complex mediates protein sorting between the trans-Golgi network and endosomes. Vertebrates express three AP1 σ1 subunit isoforms - σ1A, σ1B and σ1C (also known as AP1S1, AP1S2 and AP1S3,(More)
