The mannose 6-phosphate receptor, also referred to as the cation-dependent mannose 6-phosphate receptor or CD-MPR, is one of two transmembrane proteins that bind mannose-6-phosphate (M6P) on lysosomal proteins in the Golgi apparatus that are destined for transport to the lysosome (1-6, 6, 7). The other protein is termed the cation-independent mannose-6-phosphate receptor or (CI-MPR) and is also the receptor for Insulin-like growth factor II (8-14). The CD-MPR is found in all eukaryotes and is known to play a highly conserved role in recognition and targeting of lysosomal enzymes. Both CD-MPRs and CI-MPRs are Glycan-binding proteins that bind their M6P-tagged cargo in the lumen of the Golgi apparatus (6). The CD-MPR shows enhanced binding to M6P in the presence of divalent cations, such as manganese (7, 15). Once bound to their cargo, the MPRs are recognized by the GGA family of clathrin adaptor proteins and accumulate in forming clathrin-coated vesicles. Upon arriving at the early endosome, the low pH environment of the endosome induces the MPRs release their cargo. The MPRs are recycled back to the Golgi, again by way of interaction with GGAs and vesicles. The cargo proteins are then trafficked to the lysosome via the late endosome in a process independent of the MPRs (6). Cargo molecules undergo extensive processing terminating in terminal mannose-6 phosphate on one or more arms of the oligosaccharide.
