The trafficking of the cation-independent mannose 6-phosphate receptor between the trans-Golgi network and endosomes requires binding of sorting determinants in the cytoplasmic tail of the receptor to adaptor protein complex-1 (AP-1). Using a GST pull-down binding assay, four binding motifs were identified in the cytoplasmic tail: a tyrosine-based motif ((26)YSKV(29)), an internal dileucine-based motif ((39)ETEWLM(44)), and two casein kinase 2 sites ((84)DSEDE(88) and (154)DDSDED(159)). The YSKV motif mediated the strongest interaction with AP-1 and the two CK2 motifs bound AP-1 only when they were phosphorylated. The COOH-terminal dileucines were not required for interaction with AP-1.
