Bottom Line: When longer filling pulses and chases were used to load anti-Tac into the TGN, it returned to the cell surface with a t1/2 of 46 min.Using the measured rate constants in a simple kinetic model, we predict that 82% of TacTGN38 is in the TGN, and 7% is in endosomes.TacTGN38 leaves the TGN slowly, which accounts for its steady-state distribution despite the inefficient targeting from the cell surface to the TGN.

ABSTRACT
To examine TGN38 trafficking from the cell surface to the TGN, CHO cells were stably transfected with a chimeric transmembrane protein, TacTGN38. We used fluorescent and 125I-labeled anti-Tac IgG and Fab fragments to follow TacTGN38's postendocytic trafficking. At steady-state, anti-Tac was mainly in the TGN, but shortly after endocytosis it was predominantly in early endosomes. 11% of cellular TacTGN38 is on the plasma membrane. Kinetic analysis of trafficking of antibodies bound to TacTGN38 showed that after short endocytic pulses, 80% of internalized anti-Tac returned to the cell surface (t1/2 = 9 min), and the remainder trafficked to the TGN. When longer filling pulses and chases were used to load anti-Tac into the TGN, it returned to the cell surface with a t1/2 of 46 min. Quantitative confocal microscopy analysis also showed that fluorescent anti-Tac fills the TGN with a 46-min t1/2. Using the measured rate constants in a simple kinetic model, we predict that 82% of TacTGN38 is in the TGN, and 7% is in endosomes. TacTGN38 leaves the TGN slowly, which accounts for its steady-state distribution despite the inefficient targeting from the cell surface to the TGN.

TacTGN38 trafficks from the recycling compartment to  the plasma membrane with a half-time of 9.5 min. Cells were  pulsed for 5 min with 1 μg/ml F-anti-Tac IgG followed by chases  with medium containing 10 μg/ml anti-fluorescein antibodies.  The recycled TacTGN38 was quenched as it returned to the cell  surface. Fluorescence images were obtained by wide-field microscopy and fluorescence power per cell was measured. The fluorescence power was fit to a monoexponential decay that gave a half-time of TacTGN38 recycling to the plasma membrane of 9.5 min.  Error bars represent SEM.

Mentions: To quantify the fluorescence from images in the fluorescein quenching experiments (see Figs. 6, 7, and 11), the background fluorescence was first subtracted from each image. This background was determined as the mean intensity from a cell-free region. The remaining cell-associated fluorescence was summed and divided by the number of cells in the field to derive the fluorescence power per cell. Ten fields of cells were imaged for each experimental condition or time point, typically with about twenty cells per field.
