Abstract


Tethering complexes contribute to the specificity of membrane fusion by recognizing organelle features on both donor and acceptor membranes. The Golgi-associated retrograde protein (GARP) complex is required for retrograde traffic from both early and late endosomes to the trans-Golgi network (TGN), presenting a paradox as to how a single complex can interact specifically with vesicles from multiple upstream compartments. We have found that a subunit of the GARP complex, Vps54, can be separated into N- and C-terminal regions that have different functions. Whereas the N-terminus of Vps54 is important for GARP complex assembly and stability, a conserved C-terminal domain mediates localization to an early endocytic compartment. Mutation of this C-terminal domain has no effect on retrograde transport from late endosomes. However, a specific defect in retrieval of Snc1 from early endosomes is observed when recycling from late endosomes to the Golgi is blocked. These data suggest that separate domains recruit tethering complexes to different upstream compartments to regulate individual trafficking pathways.
