Madame Curie Bioscience Database . Austin (TX): Landes Bioscience; 2000-2013.


Secretion of proteins from eukaryotic bio cells requires the coordinated duty of multipleorganelles and also cellular machineries. After ~ synthesis and translocation right into the endoplasmicreticulum, proteins room exported to the Golgi apparatus, a multi-compartmentorganelle that is the protein modifying, packaging and also distribution center of the secretorypathway. This chapter gives a quick historical account of the discovery of the Golgi apparatus,a description of its distinct structure and organization, and its role in glycoprotein biosynthesis,sorting and secretion. The biogenesis that the Golgi v localization the resident proteins andits inheritance during cell division is likewise described. Focus is inserted on processes, such asprotein transport v the Golgi, that space incompletely understood and remain focal pointsfor current research in this field.

The Secretory Pathway

The move of proteins and also lipids from their site of synthetic at the endoplasmic reticulum(ER) to the cell surface is mediated by the secretory pathway and also is critical process ineukaryotic organisms. A good variety of molecules room extruded from cells by the action of thesecretory pathway, including extracellular matrix materials that administer the foundation forconstructing tissues and organs. Moreover, this pathway theatre a major role in the biogenesis ofthe plasma membrane and also its expansion before cell division. Therefore, without secretion therewould it is in no cells, organization or organs, and so that is for sure to say that we owe our an extremely existence come thesecretory pathway.

To recognize the procedure of cheap we have to learn about the oribelles that compose thesecretory pathway; the ER and also Golgi apparatus, and the move vesicles these organellesproduce. The membrane of these organelles is mainly synthesized and assembled at the ERbut with contributions indigenous mitochondria (phosphatidylethanolamine) and the Golgi apparatus(sphingolipids). Freshly synthesized protein destined for secretion gain entry right into the secretorypathway by translocation throughout the ER membrane. This translocation apparatus additionally integratesproteins into the membrane and also establishes their topology v respect to the lipidbilayer (see chapter 7). Countless secretory proteins are covalently modified with oligosaccharidesto create glycoproteins, a biosynthetic process initiated in the ER and continued in the Golgiapparatus. As soon as proteins are correctly folded and also modified in the ER, lock are permitted to leaveand space ushered right into COPII-coated carrier vesicles creating at details exit website (see Chapters 1and 8). After ~ budding, the COPII engine uncoat and also deliver their materials to an amazingprotein modifying, transporting and sorting an equipment called the Golgi apparatus, which will bethe focus of this chapter. Native the Golgi, proteins have the right to be delivered ago to the ER, come theendosomal-lysosomal device or to the plasma membrane in different membrane-bound carriers.

History of the Golgi Apparatus

Nature must be enjoy it at our attempts to understand the Golgi apparatus. This organellehas been steeped in dispute for more than 100 years and also will likely proceed this finetradition because that years come come. The was found by that namesake, Camillo Golgi, and was firstdescribed in 1898 as an intracellular reticular device stained through the “black reaction” inneuronal cells.1 This histochemical stain is resulted in by the reduction of silver nitrate or osmiumin compartments of the Golgi apparatus. In the early 1900s, Golgi, Negri, Cajal and also othersused this technique to visualize a similar reticular device in many different cells,1-3 leading tothe current view that the Golgi apparatus is ubiquitous in eukaryotic cells. This intracellularentity was initially known as the “reticular framework of Golgi”, back the term “Golgi apparatus”,first offered by Nusbaum in 1913, has actually slowly end up being the most popular name for thisorganelle.4 Fuchs first speculated on a function for the Golgi device in protein secretion in1902,5 and the morphological studies of Nassonov6 and Bowen7 strongly sustained this opinion.However, countless detractors, such together Baker, suggested that the Golgi apparatus was merely anartifact that the staining an approach used to observe it, and was possibly no much more than the depositionof metal in “empty spaces” between other cellular structures.8 This debate raged till the 1950swhen the Golgi apparatus to be visualized by Felix and Dalton making use of the newly occurred electronmicroscope.9,10 While rather pointed out comparable structures in records published concomitantly,11,12 it to be Felix and also Dalton the demonstrated the osmiophilic nature the the organelle,correlating it to the Golgi apparatus identified by irradiate microscopy after ~ impregnation withOsO4. This authors additionally introduced the hatchet “Golgi complex” come emphasize itsmulti-component nature and this surname is still favored by many cell biologists.10 A much more completeaccounting the the Golgi apparatus history can be uncovered in a few excellent books andreviews (refs. 4,13-16) .

Cisternal Organization

As visualized through electron microscopy (EM) of ultrathin sections, the Golgi device appearsas a stack containing multiple flattened, disk-shaped membranes referred to as cisternae (Fig. 1).To analyze these images, it help to imagine a stack of pancakes (cisternae), reduced down thecenter, and also viewed native the sheet of the cut challenge of the stack. The variety of cisternae in a stackcan vary from 4-8, as typically seen in mammalian cells, to much more than 30 in scale-secretingalgae. The rims that the cisternae are often dilated and also extended into tubules or tubular networks.Cisternal membranes room smooth from the absence of ribosomes and also are generally curved,sometimes to the allude of creating a circle quite than one arc. Gaps along the size of acisterna are typical and also represent holes, or fenestrae, within the disk. Different species of vesiclesappear come bud native cisternal rims and carry protein to various other organelles (ER, plasma membrane,endosomes or lysosomes) or to other cisternae in ~ the Golgi apparatus.

Depending top top the cell type, an individual cell section may contain countless Golgi stacks thatappear to be separate structures, but this often represents a solitary Golgi ribbon winding in andout that the ar plane. This have the right to be checked out in the electron micrograph that epithelial cells impregnatedwith osmium displayed in (Fig. 1), which appears to present multiple Golgi stacks per cell.However, the inset shows a lateral check out of a similar sample, visualized v a irradiate microscope,where the “classically stained” Golgi apparatus mirrors its ribbon-like character as it twistsand turns v the apical portion of the cell.17 In addition, adjacent stacks the cisternae areoften separated by what show up to be swarm of vesicles in slim sections, but when viewed inthick sections are actually tubular connections, or noncompact regions, between cisternae atequivalent positions in the stacks (labeled NCR in Fig. 2).18 Thus, that is usually thought,although complicated to prove, the the Golgi device is a single-copy organelle in many mammaliancells. However, other cell types, such together plant cells committed for secretion, might haveseveral hundred different Golgi stacks per cell (called dictyosomes in the larger literature).19

The distinct polarity of the Golgi ridge was obvious from beforehand EM studies. As seen inFigure 1, cisternae at one edge of the Golgi ridge preferentially lessened osmium and wereblackened. This osmiophilic side of the Golgi device is now recognized as the cis, or forming,face the the organelle. It is often adjacent to ER exit sites and little vesicular-tubular clusters(VTCs),20 representing ER come Golgi move intermediates, are found between the ER and also cisGolgi. The repertoire of VTCs, which are thought come be formed by the coalescence that COPIIvesicles budding from the ER, stand for the ER-Golgi intermediate compartment, or ERGIC.21Medial cisternae comprise the center of the stack and also trans cisternae write the exit face ofthe Golgi apparatus. The infectious diseases worldwide cisternae have the right to be preferentially stained for mountain phosphatase andthiamine pyrophosphatase,22,23 demonstrating a unique enzyme composition for the transface. In fact, each an ar appears to have a distinctive composition as indicated by the observationthat Golgi markers for the cis, medial and also trans regions can be be separated by density-gradientcentrifugation.24 The critical one or two cisternae at the infectious diseases worldwide side often tend to be an ext reticulated andoften appear to be peeling off of the ridge (Fig. 2). This component of the Golgi apparatus is called thetrans-Golgi network (TGN)25 or trans-tubular network (TTN)26 and also produces huge secretorygranules in specialized secretory cells. Clathrin-coated vesicles especially bud from the TGNin all cell species and administer a morphological signpost for the TGN.27 it is vital to notethat the cis, medial, trans, and TGN labels apply to areas within a continuum of cisternaeand it is usually difficult to know, because that example, wherein the cis-Golgi ends and also the medialGolgi begins.

The position of the Golgi within the cell varies through cell kind and species. The Golgi apparatuswill often sit between the nucleus and also the apical membrane of polarized epithelial cells(Fig. 1), but takes a perinuclear position in nonpolarized mammalian cell (Fig. 3). This iscontrolled by the microtubule network the the cell and dynein/dynactin engine proteins thattransport Golgi facets to the microtubule organizing facility sitting nearby to the nucleus.28In tree cells, the Golgi complicated appears to be randomly distributed throughout the cytoplasm.19

Three-Dimensional (3D) framework of the Golgi Apparatus

The heterogenous and convoluted structure of the Golgi apparatus presents a difficulty tovisualizing its 3D structure. One technique has been restoration from serial thin sections, inwhich EM pictures are built up from nearby thin sections (<100 nm) the the very same sample andused to rebuild the whole. In addition, Rambourg and also Clermont to be the very first to investigatethe 3D structure of Golgi using a stereoscopic approach,29 where two photographs the thesame thick ar (150-200 nm) are taken in ~ two various angles by EM and then regarded witha stereoscope. These studies added to the view that the Golgi is a single-copy organelle,18but also with these techniques, controversies end the autonomy of every Golgi cisternae werenot resolved. For example, is each cisternae a different compartment, or are nearby cisternaeconnected through tubular elements?

With brand-new techniques arisen in recent years, the 3D ultra-structure of Golgi apparatus isbeing acquired at higher resolution, which has actually helped to refine our expertise of the relationshipbetween the structure and also function.30-32 The timeless chemical continuous of samples isreplaced v fixation through ultra-rapid freezing, adhered to by freeze substitution. This methodenables the immobilization of every molecules in a cabinet within milliseconds, hence reducing fixationartifacts come a minimum. Another development is the use of dual-axis, high-voltage electronmicroscope (HVEM) tomography to analysis of a series of fairly thick sections (1 μm comparedto much less than 100 nm in common transmission EM). The sections are tilted from +60° to-60° and also photographed every 1.5° to generate a tilt series. The specimen is climate rotated 90° inthe airplane of the grid and a 2nd tilt series is taken. Contrasted to repair of serial thinsections, less information is lost due to the fact that fewer sections room required and the twin axis tilt seriesprovides a resolution pull close 5 nm.

Two varieties of cultured mammalian cell were originally examined by this an approach with similarresults.30,31,33 The Golgi device from both of these cells consisted of 7 cisternae and adjacentstacks of Golgi were associated by tubular bridges between the cisternae at identical levels.However, over there did not show up to be tubular relationships between nearby cisternae in thecis-trans direction, supporting the view that each cisterna is one autonomous structure. However,later reconstructions that Golgi in cells stimulated to boost secretory protein load showedevidence the tubular connections between nonadjacent cisternae that can mediate circulation ofprotein individually of vesicular transport.34,35 every cisternae in the reconstructions to be fenestratedand huge cisternal holes were aligned to kind “wells” in ~ the stack. These “wells”are most likely regions energetic in protein transport since they space filled with free vesicles and also buddingprofiles. Tubules through budding tips extended perpendicularly indigenous the margins of both cisand infectious diseases worldwide cisternae. The tubules from cis-side cisternae reached into the ERGIC region, andtubules from trans-side cisternae reached right into the TGN regions. This tubules appear to pat arole in protein transport, one of two people by more fragmentation into transport vesicles, or relax of anentire tubule delivering proteins to the cell surface. All cisternae displayed coated sprout that weremainly situated at your margins and also at the sheet of holes. Just the trans-most cisterna displayedclathrin-coated buds, conversely, the others only shown non-clathrin coated buds. One reconstructedsegment of a ribbon consisted of ˜2100 motor in the Golgi region, providing the impressionof a significant flux the membrane through vesicular carry meachanisms.31 The infectious diseases world fashion cisternaewere wrapped v a specialized ER membrane, which short ribosome combination at theface nearby to the Golgi cisternae. The factor for an association in between the trans Golgi andthe ER is unknown, although it is feasible that lipid exchange might occur in these regions ofcontact.

Structure that the Golgi device in S. Cerevisiae

The budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae deserves special mention because it has actually becomean important system for studying the secretory pathway and it was initially thought to be anexception to the ascendancy that all eukaryotes have actually a Golgi apparatus. This is since stacked cisternaeare seldom seen in S. Cerevisiae. Instead, the Golgi cisternae are dispersed throughout thecytoplasm and also are mostly disk-like or tubular networks.36,37 by staining cells v reducedosmium and viewing special sections, these small tubular networks were found throughout thecells and also were thought about to exchange mail to Golgi structures.37 The tubules form a meshworkwith dilated nodules at the intersections that appear to concentration secretory cargo and give riseto secretory motor (˜100 nm vesicles). These frameworks disappear in mutants that block proteintransport indigenous the ER come the Golgi apparatus,37 and also expand right into structures much more similarto mammalian cisternae (Berkeley bodies) in mutants that block protein departure from the Golgiapparatus.38 Protein transfer and modification studies suggest that yeast have functionallydistinct cis, medial, trans and TGN compartments, just as in various other cell types.39,40 these studiesused a temperature-sensitive sec18 (NSF) mutant to specify the procedures in glycoprotein maturationrequiring vesicle-mediated protein move (Fig. 4) and strongly argue that multipleSNARE-dependent membrane combination events are compelled for intra-Golgi transport. Immunofluorescentlocalization that Golgi markers argues that over there are approximately 5-10 cisternaefor each functionally unique compartment.41-43

Protein composition of the Golgi Apparatus

The 3 primary functions of the Golgi apparatus are the transport, sorting and modificationof both protein and also lipid, and the protein composition of the organelle mirrors thesefunctions. It is estimated that approximately 1000 proteins consist of the mammalian Golgi apparatus,and around 200 the these have been identified so far.44 with the development of high-throughputtandem mass spectrometry (MS) and also the increasing accessibility of complete genome sequences, subcellularproteomics has actually allowed much more and more Golgi contents to it is in identified.45,46 Theseinclude proteins forced for: 1) glycosylation of proteins and also lipids; 2) proteolytic processingof hormones and neuropeptides; 3) protein transport and sorting; 4) lipid synthesis and modification;5) translocation the ions, hefty metals or lipids across the membrane; 6) the structureor inheritance of the Golgi apparatus (Golgi procession proteins); and 7) cytoskeleton associationand regulation. Table 1 provides examples of membrane proteins found associated with themammalian and yeast Golgi device that regularly serve together markers because that this organelle.

Production that Glycoconjugates

The Golgi apparatus is an assembly line for the production of glycoconjugates through thesequential action of glycosyltransferases that include a diverse collection of carbohydrate to both proteinsand lipids. These glycoconjugates are essential for many biological and condition processes, andplay a an important role in self-nonself recognition, both across and in ~ species.47 because that example,host-pathogen interactions are regularly mediated v binding to particular carbohydrates. Inaddition, glycoconjugates room a major component of sperm-egg recognition and help preventcross-species fertilization. Glycoconjugates room also significant transplant antigens through the ABOblood device being the best-known example. In fact, transgenic pigs space being arisen thatexpress human Golgi glycosyltransferases v the goal of harvesting pig organs because that transplantationthat will certainly not it is in rejected by the human being immune system.48,49

A single species will produce a big number of different glycoconjugates, indigenous glycoproteins(mostly protein) to proteoglycans (mostly carbohydrate) to glycolipids, and also requires alarge number of glycosyltransferases for this task. Every glycosyltransferase is specific for thesugar it transfers (e.g., galactose vs. Sialic acid), the affiliation used to attach the street to a growingpolymer (e.g., α1->6 vs. α1->2), and also the substrate receiving the sugar (e.g., N- vs O-linkedoligosaccharides). Different varieties express different sets of Golgi glycosyltransferases and also thusproduce various glycoconjugates. An entire textbook is forced for a full description ofglycoconjugate biosynthesis, and also so we will mainly restrict this conversation to the generationof a “typical” N-linked oligosaccharide on glycoproteins from mammals and also yeast.

The procedure of N-linked glycosylation of proteins starts in the ER by the addition of aN-acetylglucosamine2Mannose9Glucose3 (GlcNAc2Man9Glc3) oligosaccharide structure onasparagine (N) residues in the sequence Asn-X-Ser/Thr. This oligosaccharide is pre-assembledon dolichol, a lengthy chain lipid, and also transferred en bloc through oligosaccharyltransferase to a nascentpolypeptide arising from the translocon. Then, the three glucose residues and also typically onemannose residue are gotten rid of in the ER to generate the Asn-GlcNAc2Man8 “high-mannose”glycoprotein the is exported to the Golgi apparatus for additional processing.50 The structure ofthe dolichol-GlcNAc2Man9Glc3 donor and subsequent glycan processing occasions in the ERappears to it is in remarkably fine conserved in all eukaryotes, in contrast to the modificationevents in the Golgi apparatus. O-glycosylation additionally appears to be initiated in the ER, however in thiscase by deliver of a monosaccharide from either a dolichol-linked (Dol-P-Man in yeast) orsugar nucleotide (UDP-GalNAc in mammals) donor come serine or threonine residues.

N-Glycan handling in the Mammalian Golgi Apparatus

In mammalian cells, production of “complex” N-glycans is initiated within beforehand cisternaeof the Golgi device by the trimming the several an ext mannose residues by mannosidase Iand II to develop an Asn-GlcNAc2Man3 structure. The chain is then extended by the sequentialaddition of GlcNAc, galactose and sialic acid in medial to TGN cisternae (Fig. 4). Fucosecan additionally be added to the an initial GlcNAc attached come the Asn.50 no all N-glycans are processed tothis complicated form. In particular, N-glycans top top lysosomal enzymes space not as generally processedby the Golgi mannosidases, leaving lock in the high mannose form, and also instead she modified with a phospho-GlcNAc top top the 6 place of specific mannose residues. Thismodification wake up in the cis Golgi and also the GlcNAc is eliminated in a later compartment togenerate the mannose-6-phosphate moiety forced for sorting these glycoproteins to the lysosome(Fig. 4).51 High mannose and facility N-glycans can be distinguished experimentally bytheir sensitivity to endoglycosidase H (Endo H). Endo H can cleave high mannose N-glycanson glycoproteins in transit v the ER and also early Golgi, but they become Endo H resistantas they are trimmed of mannose in cis Golgi cisternae and modified v GlcNAc in the medialGolgi. The is remarkable that because of the diversity the the modifying enzymes in various celltypes, even within an individual, the tires N-glycan framework attached to proteins are extremelyvariable.

Specific glycosyltransferases catalyze the carry of the street described above from sugarnucleotide donors (UDP-GlcNAc, UDP-Gal, GDP-fucose and CMP-sialic acid) to the growingoligosaccharide chain. For most reactions, this generates a nucleotide diphosphate, which isthen cleaved to the monophosphate through a nucleotide diphosphatase. Antiporters in the Golgimembrane then exchange the nucleotide monophosphate because that a fresh street nucleotide. In thecytosol, the monophosphates room converted to triphosphates and enter the pool used to formnew street nucleotides.52 This one-for-one exchange mediated by the antiporters guarantee theavailability of street nucleotide donors “on demand” in the Golgi lumen, without a wastefulaccumulation of this energetically high-quality precursor.

N-Glycan handling in the Yeast Golgi Apparatus

In yeast, the procedure of N-glycosylation in the ER is the exact same as explained above. However,complex N-glycans space not produced in the Golgi apparatus and also yeast glycoproteins deserve to beclassified as “high mannose” and “extremely high mannose”. This is due to the fact that the yeast Golgiapparatus lacks α-mannosidases and also contains several different mannosyltransferases thatextend the N-glycans through mannose. Glycoproteins destined because that intracellular organelles receivea minimal number the mannose residues (˜5 every N-glycan) in the Golgi apparatus, when manysecreted glycoproteins room modified v 25 to an ext than 100 mannose residual water to generatemannoproteins, vital component of the cell wall. This obvious simplicity in sugarcontent belies the huge number that mannosyltransferases forced to produce these glycoproteins(see Table 1). Mannose is added sequentially in three different linkages, α1->6, α1->2and α1->3, in cis, medial, and also trans cisternae, dong (Fig. 4). The level of mannoseaddition is established by even if it is a single α1->6-mannose, or a long chain of α1->6- mannoseis included to the N-glycan.53 Intermediates in this biosynthetic pathway can be identifiedusing linkage-specific antibodies to the oligosaccharides and particular glycosidases. This reagentshave been extremely valuable for surveillance the progression of newly synthesized glycoproteinsthrough the Golgi apparatus.39

Proteolytic Processing

A large number the secreted proteins, such as serum albumin, insulin, glucagon and also manyother peptide hormones, are originally synthesized together high molecular load precursors calledproproteins. Proteolytic processing of the proprotein is initiated through cleavage at dibasic sites(Arg-Arg, Arg-Lys or Lys-Lys) in ~ the TGN or secretory granules formed from the TGN. Afamily of subtilisin-like proteases responsible for this handling event contains furin and PC1- PC7 (prohormone convertase) from mammals and Kex2 native yeast. This endoproteasesoften job-related in concert v carboxypeptidases and/or aminopeptidases to procedure proproteinsto their biologically energetic mature form.54-56

In recent years, the Brown and Goldstein rap has found another collection of Golgi proteasesinvolved in handling a high molecular weight, membrane-bound precursor that the sterol regulatoryelement binding protein (SREBP), a transcription element that regulates expression ofcholesterol and fatty mountain biosynthetic genes.57 The SREBP precursor spans the membranetwice, through the N-terminal warrior factor and C-terminal regulatory domain names facing thecytosol. As soon as cholesterol level in the ER membrane drop, SREBP is transported come the Golgiapparatus wherein it meet site-1 protease (S1P) and also site-2 protease (S2P). S1P cleaves thelumenal loop of SREBP separating the two halves the this protein, and S2P release the N-terminaltranscription aspect domain through cleaving in ~ the second transmembrane domain. This unusualproteolytic activity of S2P, arising within the hydrophobic confines of the membranebilayer, is common by the presenilin-dependent γ-secretase, one more Golgi-associated proteasethat produces the amyloid β peptide thought to reason Alzheimer"s disease.58 Therefore, regulatedintramembrane proteolyis, or RIP, in ~ the Golgi apparatus plays a critically importantrole in cardiovascular and mental health.57

General Mechanisms and also Pathways

In eukaryotes, different cellular features are limit to details membrane-bound organelles.Enzymes that mediate these features are synthesized on cytosolic ribosomes (withthe exemption of proteins encoded by mitochondrial and also chloroplast genomes) and also thus needto be sorted and also delivered indigenous this website to the ideal organelle. Together originally explained byBlobel,59 non-cytosolic proteins should contain a signal, or resolve label, that tells the cabinet whereto placed them. Other proteins (receptors) act as postmen reading the address labels through molecularrecognition and delivering your protein cargo come their residence organelle, or a “delivery truck”(transport engine or tubules) heading in the right direction. The Golgi apparatus is the sorting,packaging and also distribution center of the exocytic pathway, dealing with proteins and also lipidsdestined because that the ER, plasma membrane, endosomes and also lysosomes or the Golgi chin (Fig. 5).

Figure 5

Models because that protein transport v the Golgi. Proteins space imported to the Golgi in COPII-coatedvesicles, which bud native the ER and also fuse together to type vesicular-tubular clusters (VTCs). Importantdifferences in between the 2 models lie in even if it is (more...)

Membrane-bound vesicles, often wearing a proteinacious coat, mediate protein transportfrom the Golgi apparatus to various other organelles.60-62 these vesicle cloak proteins room thought tobend the membrane during vesicle budding, and also also help to select and also concentrate cargoproteins within the vesicles. Thus, the coat contents often define the identification of these vesicles.A few types that coated vesicles produced from the Golgi apparatus have been well characterizedthat mediate different steps that protein transport. COPI-coated vesicles bud from all levels ofthe Golgi and are forced for the retrograde transfer of escaped ER residents back to the ER.These vesicles additionally appear come mediate protein transport in between Golgi cisternae, back whetherthey adjust anterograde (forward) transport, retrograde transport, or both has actually been the subjectof extreme debate. Clathrin-coated vesicles (CCVs) type at the TGN, or immature secretorygranules (ISG in Fig. 5), and also carry proteins to endosomes. For example, lysosomal enzymesbearing the mannose-6-phosphate (M6P) determinant bind to the M6P receptor in theTGN and also the facility is packaged right into CCVs because that initial distribution to one endosome. The lysosomalenzymes dissociate indigenous the M6P receptor in the acidic atmosphere of the endosome,allowing the receptor to recycle earlier to the TGN and the subsequent shipment of enzyme tothe lysosome.63

In addition, the TGN produces several various secretory vesicles through no well-known coat.Some cells will develop both “constitutive” engine (or tubules) that will fuse to the plasmamembrane there is no the need for a stimulus, and “regulated” vesicles (or secretory granules)that need a calcium influx to drive blend with the plasma membrane (Chapter 5).Moreover, polarized cells will segregate apical from basolateral proteins in the TGN and packagethese proteins into distinct vesicles.64 The basolateral proteins show up to it is in packaged intoCCVs in ~ the TGN and also whether this vesicles are targeted directly to the basolateral membraneor originally to one endosome is unclear.65,66 instrument for transfer vesicle development andtargeting will certainly be spanned in greater information in other chapters.

Golgi Protein Localization

Golgi resides proteins, such together the glycosyltransferases, room preferentially localized in differentGolgi regions but the system for localizing this enzymes to details cisternae isunknown. All recognized Golgi glycosyltransferases are type II integral membrane protein andlocalization signals have been uncovered within the cytosolic tails, transmembrane domains (TMDs)and lumenal domain names for various enzymes.67 No specific sequence making up a Golgi localizationsignal the is shared by many proteins, such as the KDEL motif uncovered on soluble ERproteins,68 has actually been determined thus far. Nor has any “receptor” been identified that recognizes aGolgi localization signal operating in the cis - infectious diseases world fashion cisterna. The situation is a little much better forTGN resident proteins such as furin and also Kex2p, where certain signals in the cytosolic tailsmediate localization.55,69 these proteins show up to cycle come endosomes, and/or the plasma membraneas component of their common trafficking itinerary. The cytosolic tail signal of these proteins aresimilar to endocytosis signals and also operate in retrieval indigenous endosomes ago to the TGN.55 Therest that this discussion will focus on protein localized in cis - infectious diseases world fashion cisternae.

For numerous years, it was assumed the Golgi cisternae were secure structures and that residentenzymes to be statically retained within a cisterna. Models because that Golgi protein localization thatwere well-known in the 1990"s reflect this bias. Because that example, the “oligomerization” or “kin recognition”hypothesis said that citizens of a certain cisterna (kin) would kind aggregatesthat were too large to get in into vesicles relocating cargo in the anterograde direction, and thusthese aggregates were retained in the Golgi cisterna in i beg your pardon they to be formed.70,71 Whilethere is proof for interaction between Golgi proteins,72 they do not appear to form largeoligomers in vivo.73 In addition, the Golgi apparatus appears to transport large oligomers, suchas collagen or algal scales, with the stack reasonably efficiently.74,75 Therefore, formation of largeoligomers every se would not prevent activity through the Golgi, and also the “kin recognition”hypothesis, at least as initially proposed, appears to it is in untenable.

A second “bilayer-thickness” theory stemmed native the observation that the size of aTMD Golgi localization signal seemed much more important 보다 its amino mountain sequence.76 Bretscherand Munro provided that Golgi enzymes tend to have much shorter TMDs 보다 plasma membraneproteins. They argued that differences in membrane thickness throughout the Golgi stack, determinedby distinctions in cholesterol content, caused Golgi enzyme to partition into membraneswith an suitable bilayer thickness come fit the size of their TMDs.77 This partitioningwould protect against the lateral diffusion that Golgi enzyme into forming anterograde vesicleswith thicker bilayers. However, research studies in insect cells indicate that cholesterol is not a majordeterminant that Golgi protein localization,78 and whether or not bilayer thickness, controlledby one more means, contributes to this process has not been experimentally tested. Moreover, itappears that double layer thickness is figured out primarily through the protein component fairly thanthe lipid component of membranes.79 Therefore, the high concentration the Golgi enzymeslikely identify the thickness the the double layer in Golgi membranes, rather than cholesterolcontent, and also perhaps this offer a system to reinforce segregation of Golgi enzymes fromnon-Golgi membrane proteins. That should likewise be detailed that the double layer thickness model suggestsa system for exactly how localization signals in ~ the transmembrane segment function,but go not describe how localization signals in the cytosolic tails and lumenal domain names ofdifferent Golgi proteins operate.

Studies top top the localization that two various Golgi glycosyltransferases native yeast and also onefrom mammalian cells argued that these proteins to be not significantly “retained” in theircompartment the residence, yet were actively retrieved from later Golgi compartments.80-82These observations argued a much more dynamic system for Golgi protein localization thanpreviously considered, analogous to the KDEL-dependent retrieval the ER proteins from theGolgi apparatus ago to the ER in COPI-coated deliver vesicles.83 In fact, COPI-coatedvesicles appear to adjust retrograde transfer of Golgi enzymes back to the ER84 and also fromlater to earlier Golgi cisternae.85-87 At least some Golgi proteins repeatedly cycle all the wayback right into the ER as component of their regular trafficking itinerary, and it has been suggested that allGolgi proteins consistently transit through the ER.84,88-90 Thus, if the device forGolgi protein recognition (i.e., a sorting receptor) is not defined, it appears that retrogradetransport plays an essential role in Golgi protein localization. The farming realization thatGolgi enzymes room not static occupants of cisternae has impacted current see on exactly how proteinsmove with the Golgi in the anterograde direction.
