Abstract: Membrane proteins that are degraded in the vacuole of Saccharomyces cerevisiae are sorted into discrete intralumenal vesicles, analogous to the internal membranes of multi-vesiculated bodies (MVBs). Recently, it has shown that the attachment of ubiquitin (Ub) mediates sorting into lumenal membranes. We describe a complex of Vps27p and Hse1p that localizes to endosomal compartments and is required for the recycling of Golgi proteins, formation of lumenal membranes and sorting of ubiquitinated proteins into those membranes. The Vps27p Hse1p complex binds to Ub and requires multiple Ub Interaction Motifs (UIMs). Mutation of these motifs results in specific defects in the sorting of ubiquitinated proteins into the vacuolar lumen. However, the recycling of Golgi proteins and the generation of lumenal membranes proceeds normally in DeltaUIM mutants. These data support a model in which the Vps27p Hse1p complex has multiple functions at the endosome, one of which is as a sorting receptor for ubiquitinated membrane proteins destined for degradation.
