The molecular mechanisms regulating G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) trafficking from their site of synthesis in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to their site of function (the cell surface) remain poorly characterized. Using a bioluminescence resonance energy transfer-based proteomic screen, we identified a novel GPCR-interacting protein; the human cornichon homologue 4 (CNIH4). This previously uncharacterized protein is localized in the early secretory pathway where it interacts with members of the 3 family of GPCRs. Both overexpression and knockdown expression of CNIH4 caused the intracellular retention of GPCRs, indicating that this ER-resident protein plays an important role in GPCR export. Overexpression of CNIH4 at low levels rescued the maturation and cell surface expression of an intracellularly retained mutant form of the ß2-adrenergic receptor, further demonstrating a positive role of CNIH4 in GPCR trafficking. Taken with the co-immunoprecipitation of CNIH4 with Sec23 and Sec24, components of the COPII coat complex responsible for ER export, these data suggest that CNIH4 acts as a cargo-sorting receptor, recruiting GPCRs into COPII vesicles.

Mutant membrane proteins are frequently retained in the early secretory pathway by a quality control system, thereby causing disease. An example are mutants of the vasopressin V(2) receptor (V(2)R) leading to nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. Transport-defective V(2)Rs fall into two classes: those retained exclusively in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and those reaching post-ER compartments such as the ER/Golgi intermediate compartment. Although numerous chemical or pharmacological chaperones that rescue the transport of ER-retained membrane proteins are known, substances acting specifically in post-ER compartments have not been described as yet. Using the L62P (ER-retained) and Y205C (reaching post-ER compartments) mutants of the V(2)R as a model, we show here that the cell-penetrating peptide penetratin and its synthetic analog KLAL rescue the transport of the Y205C mutant. In contrast, the location of the L62P mutant is not influenced by either peptide because the peptides are unable to enter the ER. We also show data indicating that the peptide-mediated transport rescue is associated with an increase in cytosolic Ca(2+) concentrations. Thus, we describe a new class of substances influencing protein transport specifically in post-ER compartments.

It is believed that the membrane-proximal C tail of the G protein-coupled receptors forms an additional alpha helix with amphipathic properties (helix 8). It was previously shown for the vasopressin V2 receptor (V2R) that a conserved dileucine motif (L(339), L(340)) in this putative helix 8 is necessary for endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to Golgi transfer of the receptor. Here, we demonstrate that the other hydrophobic residues forming the non-polar side of this helix (F(328), V(332) and L(336)) are also transport-relevant. In contrast, the multiple serine residues contributing to the more hydrophilic side (S(330), S(331), S(333), S(334), S(338)) do not influence receptor trafficking. In addition, we show unambiguously by the use of pharmacological chaperones that the hydrophobic residues of the putative helix 8 do not form a transport signal necessary for receptor sorting into ER to Golgi vesicles. Instead, they are necessary to establish a transport-competent folding state in the early secretory pathway.

Approximately 5-10% of the GPCRs (G-protein-coupled receptors) contain N-terminal signal peptides that are cleaved off during receptor insertion into the ER (endoplasmic reticulum) membrane by the signal peptidases of the ER. The reason as to why only a subset of GPCRs requires these additional signal peptides is not known. We have recently shown that the signal peptide of the human ET(B)-R (endothelin B receptor) does not influence receptor expression but is necessary for the translocation of the receptor's N-tail across the ER membrane and thus for the establishment of a functional receptor [Köchl, Alken, Rutz, Krause, Oksche, Rosenthal and Schülein (2002) J. Biol. Chem. 277, 16131-16138]. In the present study, we show that the signal peptide of the rat CRF-R1 (corticotropin-releasing factor receptor 1) has a different function: a mutant of the CRF-R1 lacking the signal peptide was functional and displayed wild-type properties with respect to ligand binding and activation of adenylate cyclase. However, immunoblot analysis and confocal laser scanning microscopy revealed that the mutant receptor was expressed at 10-fold lower levels than the wild-type receptor. Northern-blot and in vitro transcription translation analyses precluded the possibility that the reduced receptor expression is due to decreased transcription or translation levels. Thus the signal peptide of the CRF-R1 promotes an early step of receptor biogenesis, such as targeting of the nascent chain to the ER membrane and/or the gating of the protein-conducting translocon of the ER membrane.

The G protein-coupled V(2) vasopressin receptor is crucially involved in water reabsorption in the renal collecting duct. Mutations in the human V(2) vasopressin receptor gene cause nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. Many of the disease-causing mutants are retained intracellularly by the quality control system of the early secretory pathway. It was previously thought that quality control system is restricted to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Here, we have examined the retention mechanisms of eight V(2) vasopressin receptor mutants. We show that mutants L62P, DeltaL62-R64 and S167L are trapped exclusively in the ER. In contrast, mutants R143P, Y205C, InsQ292, V226E and R337X reach the ER/Golgi intermediate compartment (ERGIC) and are rerouted to the ER. The ability of the mutant receptors to reach the ERGIC is independent of their expression levels. Instead, it is determined by their folding state. Mutant receptors in the ERGIC may be sorted into retrograde transport vesicles by an interaction of an RXR motif in the third intracellular loop with the coatomer complex I. Our data show that disease-causing mutants of a particular membrane protein may be retained in different compartments of the early secretory pathway and that the folding states of the proteins determine their retention mechanism.
