The endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment (ERGIC) is the site of segregation of secretory proteins for anterograde transport, via packaging into COPII-coated transport vesicles. ERGIC-53 is a homo-hexameric transmembrane lectin localized to the ERGIC that exhibits mannose-selective properties in vitro. Null mutations in ERGIC-53 were recently shown to be responsible for the autosomal recessive bleeding disorder, combined deficiency of coagulation factors V and VIII. We have studied the effect of defective ER to Golgi cycling by ERGIC-53 on the secretion of factors V and VIII. The secretion efficiency of factor V and factor VIII was studied in a tetracycline-inducible HeLa cell line overexpressing a wild-type ERGIC-53 or a cytosolic tail mutant of ERGIC-53 (KKAA) that is unable to exit the ER due to mutation of two COOH-terminal phenylalanine residues to alanines. The results show that efficient trafficking of factors V and VIII requires a functional ERGIC-53 cycling pathway and that this trafficking is dependent on post-translational modification of a specific cluster of asparagine (N)-linked oligosaccharides to a fully glucose-trimmed, mannose9 structure.
