Annexin A2-dependent polymerization of actin mediates endosome biogenesis


Morel, Etienne; Parton, Robert G; Gruenberg, Jean (2009). Annexin A2-dependent polymerization of actin mediates endosome biogenesis. Developmental cell, 16(3):445-457.

Abstract

Early endosomes give rise to multivesicular intermediates during transport toward late endosomes. Much progress has been made in understanding the sorting of receptors into these intermediates, but the mechanisms responsible for their biogenesis remain unclear. Here, we report that F-actin is necessary for transport beyond early endosomes and endosome formation. We found that endosomes captured by actin cables were essentially stationary, but early endosomes also exhibited patches of F-actin and facilitated selective F-actin nucleation and polymerization. Our data show that nucleation of actin patches by early endosomes is strictly dependent on annexin A2, a protein involved in early-to-late endosome transport. It also requires the actin nucleation factor Spire1 and involves Arp2/3, which is needed for filament branching. We conclude that actin patches are nucleated on early endosomes via annexin A2 and Spire1, and that these patches control endosome biogenesis, presumably by driving the membrane remodeling process.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
