The epsin-related adaptor proteins Ent3p and Ent5p participate in budding of clathrin coated vesicles in transport between trans-Golgi network and endosomes in yeast. Transport of the arginine permease Can1p was analyzed, which recycles between plasma membrane and endosomes and can be targeted to the vacuole for degradation. ent3∆ cells accumulate Can1p-GFP in endosomes. Can1p-GFP is transported faster to the vacuole upon induction of degradation in ent5∆ cells than in wild type cells. The C-terminal domain of Ent5p was sufficient to restore recycling of the secretory SNARE GFP-Snc1p between plasma membrane and TGN in ent3∆ ent5∆ cells. The SNARE Tlg2p was identified as interaction partner of the Ent5p ENTH domain by in vitro binding assays and the interaction site on Ent5p was mapped. Tlg2p functions in transport from early endosomes to the trans-Golgi network and in homotypic fusion of these organelles. Tlg2p is partially shifted to denser fractions in sucrose density gradients of organelles from ent5∆ cells while distribution of Kex2p is unaffected demonstrating that Ent5p acts as cargo adaptor for Tlg2p in vivo. Taken together we show that Ent3p and Ent5p have different roles in transport and function as cargo adaptors for distinct SNAREs. © 2023 The Authors. Traffic published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
