Two independent functions of cTAGE5 have been reported in collagen VII export from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). cTAGE5 not only forms a cargo receptor complex with TANGO1, but it also acts as a scaffold to recruit Sec12, a guanine-nucleotide exchange factor for Sar1 GTPase, to ER exit sites. However, the relationship between the two functions remains(More)
Autophagosomes are double-membrane vesicles generated during autophagy. Biogenesis of the autophagosome requires membrane acquisition from intracellular compartments, the mechanisms of which are unclear. We previously found that a relocation of COPII machinery to the ER-Golgi intermediate compartment (ERGIC) generates ERGIC-derived COPII vesicles which(More)
Mammalian endoplasmic reticulum (ER) exit sites export a variety of cargo molecules including oversized cargoes such as collagens. However, the mechanisms of their assembly and organization are not fully understood. TANGO1L is characterized as a collagen receptor, but the function of TANGO1S remains to be investigated. Here, we show that direct interaction(More)
Collagens synthesized within the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) are too large to fit in conventional COPII-coated transport vesicles; thus their export from the ER requires specialized factors. TANGO1 (L) is an integral membrane protein that binds to collagen and the coatomer of vesicles and is necessary for collagen secretion from the ER. Here we characterized(More)
