2008) Molecular basis of sugar recognition by the human L-type lectins ERGIC-53, VIPL, and VIP36.
VIPL was first identified as a protein with high homology to VIP36 in silico, and revealed its expression in the ER.
The results clearly showed that ERGIC-53 co-precipitated with VIPL, but not with VIP36, and that the ERGIC-53-VIPL interaction is mediated by the transmembrane or cytoplasmic domains of these cargo receptors (Fig.
VIP36 preferentially recognizes deglucosylated A-arms and delivers N-glycan-unprocessed glycoproteins (which may be misfolded) from the Golgi to the ER, where the chaperone BiP enhances correct folding.
