Interactions of GGA3 with the ubiquitin sorting machinery.

Abstract

The Golgi-localized, gamma-ear-containing, Arf-binding (GGA) proteins constitute a family of clathrin adaptors that are mainly associated with the trans-Golgi network (TGN) and mediate the sorting of mannose 6-phosphate receptors. This sorting is dependent on the interaction of the VHS domain of the GGAs with acidic-cluster-dileucine signals in the cytosolic tails of the receptors. Here we demonstrate the existence of another population of GGAs that are associated with early endosomes. RNA interference (RNAi) of GGA3 expression results in accumulation of the cation-independent mannose 6-phosphate receptor and internalized epidermal growth factor (EGF) within enlarged early endosomes. This perturbation impairs the degradation of internalized EGF, a process that is normally dependent on the sorting of ubiquitinated EGF receptors (EGFRs) to late endosomes. Protein interaction analyses show that the GGAs bind ubiquitin. The VHS and GAT domains of GGA3 are responsible for this binding, as well as for interactions with TSG101, a component of the ubiquitin-dependent sorting machinery. Thus, GGAs may have additional roles in sorting of ubiquitinated cargo.
