Abstract

Although signals for retention in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) have been identified in the cytoplasmic domain of various ER-resident type I transmembrane proteins, the mechanisms responsible for ER retention are still unknown. Yeast and mammalian ER retention motifs interacted specifically in cell lysates with the coatomer, a polypeptide complex implicated in membrane traffic. Mutations that affect the ER retention capacity of the motifs also abolished binding of the coatomer. These results suggest a role for the coatomer in the retrieval of transmembrane proteins to the ER in both yeast and mammals.
