early endosomes

early endosomes

membrane-bound compartments located near the cell membrane with an internal pH of 6.0. Pinocytotic vesicles fuse with early endosomes and, frequently, receptors and ligands are uncoupled here. Receptors are returned to the cell membrane and ligands or other material delivered by pinocytotic vesicles are transferred to late endosomes.
See also: compartment for uncoupling receptors and ligands.

The biogenesis and release of exosomes can be roughly divided into two steps: the formation of multivesicular bodies (MVBs) and their fusion with the plasma membrane [Figure 1].[25] The endocytic vesicles mature to early endosomes and then the late endosomes by inward budding of the plasma membrane.[26] The late endosomes turn into MVBs by accumulating the intraluminal vesicles (ILVs) which consist of endosomal sorting complex required for transport, proteins, lipids, and RNAs.[23] Thereafter, the MVBs fuse with the plasma membrane and release the ILVs, which are called exosomes.[13] MVs are released by the outward budding of the plasma membrane or from the endosomal compartments.[27] ABs are released after cells undergo apoptosis.{Figure 1}
This transport seems to be carried out by the recruitment of proteins in clathrin-coated vesicles, on which the receptors are removed to early endosomes and subsequently degraded by lysosomal enzymes or recycled to the cell surface (30).
Therefore, it was presumed that while the nanoparticles were internalized into the cytoplasm of the lysosomal compartment from early endosomes, then they might gradually be delivered to late endosomes and lysosomes around the nuclei with the release of the vesicles and the growth of the endosomes [25, 26].
First, the cells internalize extracellular ligands or cellular components by endocytosis to form early endosomes. During early maturation, the endosomes form inward luminal vesicles (ILVs) by inward budding.
ORP6 localizes in early endosomes, lysosomes, and the endoplasmic reticulum.
NOD1 ligand is presented to NOD1 by early endosomes, perhaps by a mechanism involving SLC15 transporter proteins as discussed above; this mechanism whatever its nature, also facilitates NOD1 binding to RIP2.
These exosomes participate in the processing of many proteins (reviewed in [35]), but specifically it was shown that [beta]-cleavage occurs in early endosomes, and the products are secreted from the cells in association with exosomes [36].
SORL1 binds directly to APP and controls APP trafficking from the early endosomes (EE) back to the TGN or the plasma membrane (PM), thereby preventing [beta]- and [gamma]-secretase-mediated APP cleavage [6, 7].

EGFR is overexpressed in many cancers, and its activation is related to the tumor microenvironment; for example, oxidative stress-mediated activation of EGFR leads to failure of EGFR to undergo entry into early endosomes for subsequent degradation, resulting in prolonged activation of EGFR signaling, tumorigenesis, and malignancy [15,16].
A unique cadre of Rab proteins is localized to endosomes, with Rab 4 and 5 being associated with early endosomes and Rab 7 and 9 with late endosomes.
