Abstract

The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 Nef protein alters the post-Golgi stages of major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC-I) biogenesis. Presumed mechanisms involve the disclosure of a cryptic tyrosine-based sorting signal (YSQA) located in the cytoplasmic tail of HLA-A and -B heavy chains. We changed this signal for a prototypic sorting motif (YSQI or YSQL). Modified HLA-A2 molecules, termed A2-endo, displayed constitutively low surface levels and accumulated in a region close to or within the Golgi apparatus, a behavior reminiscent of wild-type HLA-A2 in Nef-expressing cells. However, several lines of evidence indicate that the action of prototypic signals on MHC-I trafficking differs from that of Nef. Internalization of surface A2-endo was more rapid and was associated with efficient recycling to the surface. A transdominant-negative mutant of dynamin-1 inhibited A2-endo constitutive internalization and Nef-induced CD4 down-regulation, whereas it did not affect the activity of Nef on MHC-I. Moreover, trafficking of A2-endo was still affected by the viral protein, indicating additive effects of prototypic signals and Nef. Therefore, distinct trafficking pathways regulate clathrin-dependent and Nef-induced MHC-I modulation.
