snx-1 encodes a PX and BAR domain-containing protein that is the C. elegans ortholog of the Vps5/SNX1 subunit of the core retromer complex; in C. elegans, SNX-1 functions as a component of the retromer complex that, along with RME-8 and HSP-1, regulates retrograde endosome-to-Golgi transport through control of endosomal clathrin dynamics; SNX-1 binds RME-8 in vitro; SNX-1 is expressed in several different tissues, including the intestine, coelomocytes, and hypodermis; SNX-1 localizes to early endosomes, co-localizing with RME-8.

Affinity Capture-Western

An interaction is inferred when a bait protein is affinity captured from cell extracts by either polyclonal antibody or epitope tag and the associated interaction partner identified by Western blot with a specific polyclonal antibody or second epitope tag. This category is also used if an interacting protein is visualized directly by dye stain or radioactivity. Note that this differs from any co-purification experiment involving affinity capture in that the co-purification experiment involves at least one extra purification step to get rid of potential contaminating proteins.


Retromer is required for apoptotic cell clearance by phagocytic receptor recycling.

The cell surface receptor CED-1 mediates apoptotic cell recognition by phagocytic cells, enabling cell corpse clearance in Caenorhabditis elegans. Here, we found that the C. elegans intracellular protein sorting complex, retromer, was required for cell corpse clearance by mediating the recycling of CED-1. Retromer was recruited to the surfaces of phagosomes containing cell corpses, and its loss of function caused ... [more]
