Abstract

Progression of activated EGF receptor (EGFR) through the endocytic pathway regulates EGFR signaling. Here we show that a non-ubiquitinated EGFR mutant, unable to bind the endosomal-sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) component, Hrs, is not efficiently targeted onto intraluminal vesicles (ILVs) of multivesicular endosomes/bodies (MVBs). Moreover, ubiquitination and ESCRT engagement of activated EGFR are required for EGF-stimulated ILV formation. Non-ubiquitinated EGFRs enter clathrin-coated tubules emanating from MVBs and show enhanced recycling to the plasma membrane, compared to wild-type EGFR.
