Our previous studies demonstrated that fluorescent early endocytic vesicles prepared from rat liver after injection of Texas red asialoorosomucoid contain asialoglycoprotein and its receptor and move and undergo fission along microtubules using kinesin I and KIFC2, with Rab4 regulating KIFC2 activity (J. Cell Sci. 116, 2749, 2003). In the current study,(More)
Endocytic vesicles undergo fission to sort ligand from receptor. Using quantitative immunofluorescence and video imaging, we provide the first in vitro reconstitution of receptor-ligand sorting in early endocytic vesicles derived from rat liver. We show that to undergo fission, presegregation vesicles must bind to microtubules (MTs) and move upon addition(More)
Early endocytic vesicles loaded with Texas Red asialoorosomucoid were prepared from mouse liver. These vesicles bound to microtubules in vitro, and upon ATP addition, they moved bidirectionally, frequently undergoing fission into two daughter vesicles. There was no effect of vanadate (inhibitor of dynein) on motility, whereas 5'-adenylylimido-diphosphate(More)
The vectorial nature of hepatocyte receptor-mediated endocytosis (RME) and its susceptibility to cytoskeletal disruptors has suggested that a polarized network of microtubules plays a vital role in directed movement during sorting. Using as markers a well-known ligand, asialoorosomucoid, and its receptor, we have isolated endocytic vesicles that bind(More)
In a recent study (Goltz, J.S., Wolkoff, A.W., Novikoff, P.M., Stockert, R.J., and Satir, P. (1992) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 89, 7026-7030), we found that ligand- and receptor-containing endocytic vesicles bind to endogenous microtubules in vitro after 60 min of receptor-mediated endocytosis of asialo-orosomucoid. In the presence of ATP,(More)

The lectin hepatic binding protein has a specific binding capacity for desialylated serum glycoproteins and is limited to hepatocyte membranes. This binding capacity was reduced by approximately 60% in the neoplastic nodules which resulted from exposure of rat livers to W-2-acetylaminofluorene. The binding capacity of the primary hepatocellular carcinomas(More)
The galactophilic lectin expressed on the surface of cultured Hodgkin's cells, recently described by this laboratory, has binding characteristics similar to those of the hepatic asialoglycoprotein receptor (HBP), and has been recognized as a M, 55,000 (pSS) membrane glycoprotein by a polyclonal antiserum to rat HBP. This study confirms the close structural(More)
