Mackenzie, Yoshitaka Tanaka, Yuji Ishii, Investigation of the endoplasmic reticulum localization of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 2B7 with systematic deletion mutants, Molecular Pharmacology, 10.1124/mol.118.113902, 551-562, 2019.05, [URL], UDP-Glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) plays an important role in the metabolism of endogenous and exogenous compounds. UGT is a type I membrane protein, and has a dilysine motif (KKXX/KXKXX) in its C-terminal cytoplasmic domain. Although a dilysine motif is defined as an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) retrieval signal, it remains a matter of debate whether this motif functions in the ER localization of UGT. To address this issue, we generated systematic deletion mutants of UGT2B7, a major human isoform, and compared their subcellular localizations with that of an ER marker protein calnexin (CNX), using subcellular fractionation and immunofluorescent microscopy. We found that although the dilysine motif functioned as the ER retention signal in a chimera that replaced the cytoplasmic domain of CD4 with that of UGT2B7, UGT2B7 truncated mutants lacking this motif extensively colocalized with CNX, indicating dilysine motif–independent ER retention of UGT2B7. Moreover, deletion of the C-terminal transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains did not affect ER localization of UGT2B7, suggesting that the signal necessary for ER retention of UGT2B7 is present in its luminal domain. Serial deletions of the luminal domain, however, did not affect the ER retention of the mutants. Further, a cytoplasmic and transmembrane domain–deleted mutant of UGT2B7 was localized to the ER without being secreted. These results suggest that UGT2B7 could localize to the ER without any retention signal, and lead to the conclusion that the static localization of UGT results from lack of a signal for export from the ER..

Despite accumulating evidence for therapeutic efficacy, the behavior and fate of TCZ at the cellular level remain largely unknown. To address this, we evaluated the endocytosis and intracellular trafficking of IL-6R in HeLa cells. The results of our study provide evidence that IL-6R is constitutively internalized from the cell surface by ligand or TCZ binding and the expression of gp130 in an independent manner and is targeted via endosomes without being significantly directed to the recycling pathway to, and degraded in, lysosomes. Furthermore, the cytoplasmic tail of IL-6R is required for constitutive endocytosis of the receptor, which is mediated by the clathrin and AP-2 complex. We further demonstrate that FcRn, whose function is to regulate the serum persistence of IgG, is confined primarily to early/recycling endosomes and rapidly transits between these compartments and late endosomes/lysosomes without being degraded. Importantly, the expression of FcRn induces the segregation of TCZ from IL-6R, resulting in extensive colocalization of TCZ and FcRn in IL-6R-depleted endosomal compartments. Collectively, our results suggest that FcRn can accelerate the retrieval of the internalized TCZ, not only from endosomes but also from lysosomes. Our findings provide new insight into the mechanism by which the antibody internalized into cells is rescued from lysosomal degradation and into how its serum levels are maintained..
