Sortilin and sorCS1 [sortilin-related Vps10p (vacuolar protein sorting/targeting protein 10) domain-containing receptor 1], both members of the Vps10p-D (Vps10p-domain) receptor family, are synthesized as precursor proteins and are converted into their mature form by enzymatic cleavage of a short N-terminal propeptide. SorCS1 does not bind its propeptide, but sortilin is able to bind not just its own propeptide, but also that of sorCS1. In the present study we show that the propeptide region of sorCS1 contains two separate sites for binding to sortilin and that only one of these sites is removed from human (as opposed to mouse) sorCS1 during processing. This leaves mature human sorCS1 with a sortilin-binding N-terminus, which allows formation of a complex between the two receptors in solution and on cell membranes. Furthermore, we find that the interaction with sorCS1 has a pronounced effect on sortilin's ability to mediate the cellular uptake of alternative ligands, and to hamper its facilitation of CNTF (ciliary neutrophic factor) signalling and the induction of phosphorylated STAT3 (signal transducer and activator of transcription 3). Thus the present study reveals a novel regulatory mechanism and suggest an entirely new role for sorCS1 as a modulator of sortilin function.

Circulating PCSK9 destines low-density lipoprotein receptor for degradation in lysosomes, resulting in increased LDL cholesterol. Accordingly, it is an attractive drug target for hypercholesterolemia, and results from clinical trials are promising. While the physiological role of PCSK9 in cholesterol metabolism is well described, its complex mechanism of action remains poorly understood, although it is known to depend on intracellular trafficking. We here identify sortilin, encoded by the hypercholesterolemia-risk gene SORT1, as a high-affinity sorting receptor for PCSK9. Sortilin colocalizes with PCSK9 in the trans-Golgi network and facilitates its secretion from primary hepatocytes. Accordingly, sortilin-deficient mice display decreased levels of circulating PCSK9, while sortilin overexpression in the liver confers increased plasma PCSK9. Furthermore, circulating PCSK9 and sortilin were positively correlated in a human cohort of healthy individuals, suggesting that sortilin is involved in PCSK9 secretion in humans. Taken together, our findings establish sortilin as a critical regulator of PCSK9 activity.

The development and progression of Alzheimer's disease is linked to excessive production of toxic amyloid-β peptide, initiated by β-secretase cleavage of the amyloid precursor protein (APP). In contrast, soluble APPα (sAPPα) generated by the α-secretase is known to stimulate dendritic branching and enhance synaptic function. Regulation of APP processing, and the shift from neurotrophic to neurotoxic APP metabolism remains poorly understood, but the cellular localization of APP and its interaction with various receptors is considered important. We here identify sortilin as a novel APP interaction partner. Like the related APP receptor SorLA, sortilin is highly expressed in the CNS, but whereas SorLA mainly colocalizes with APP in the soma, sortilin interacts with APP in neurites. The presence of sortilin promotes α-secretase cleavage of APP, unlike SorLA, which inhibits the generation of all soluble products. Also, sortilin and SorLA both bind and mediate internalization of sAPP but to different cellular compartments. The interaction involves the 6A domain of APP, present in both neuronal and non-neuronal APP isoforms. This is important as sAPP receptors described so far only bind the non-neuronal isoforms, leaving SorLA and sortilin as the only receptors for sAPP generated by neurons. Together, our findings establish sortilin, as a novel APP interaction partner that influences both production and cellular uptake of sAPP.

Sortilin is a member of the Vps10p domain family of neuropeptide and neurotrophin binding neuronal receptors. The family members interact with and partly share a variety of ligands and partake in intracellular sorting and protein transport as well as in transmembrane signal transduction. Thus, sortilin mediates the transport of both neurotensin and nerve growth factor and interacts with their respective receptors to facilitate ligand-induced signaling. Here we report that ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), and related ligands targeting the established CNTF receptor alpha, binds to sortilin with high affinity. We find that sortilin may have at least two functions: one is to provide rapid endocytosis and the removal of CNTF, something which is not provided by CNTF receptor alpha, and the other is to facilitate CNTF signaling through the gp130/leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) receptor beta heterodimeric complex. Interestingly, the latter function is independent of both the CNTF receptor alpha and ligand binding to sortilin but appears to implicate a direct interaction with LIF receptor beta. Thus, sortilin facilitates the signaling of all helical type 1 cytokines, which engage the gp130/LIF receptor beta complex.

SorLA/LR11 (250 kDa) is the largest and most composite member of the Vps10p-domain receptors, a family of type 1 proteins preferentially expressed in neuronal tissue. SorLA binds several ligands, including neurotensin, platelet-derived growth factor-bb, and lipoprotein lipase, and via complex-formation with the amyloid precursor protein it downregulates generation of Alzheimer's disease-associated Abeta-peptide. The receptor is mainly located in vesicles, suggesting a function in protein sorting and transport. Here we examined SorLA's trafficking using full-length and chimeric receptors and find that its cytoplasmic tail mediates efficient Golgi body-endosome transport, as well as AP-2 complex-dependent endocytosis. Functional sorting sites were mapped to an acidic cluster-dileucine-like motif and to a GGA binding site in the C terminus. Experiments in permanently or transiently AP-1 mu1-chain-deficient cells established that the AP-1 adaptor complex is essential to SorLA's transport between Golgi membranes and endosomes. Our results further implicate the GGA proteins in SorLA trafficking and provide evidence that SNX1 and Vps35, as parts of the retromer complex or possibly in a separate context, are engaged in retraction of the receptor from endosomes.
