5 M# w% ^, @/ ]2 k4 n2 s3 e! mDespite the existence of multiple subunit isoforms for the microtubule motor cytoplasmic dynein, it has not yet been directly shown that dynein complexes with different compositions exhibit different properties. The 14-kD dynein light chain Tctex-1, but not its homologue RP3, binds directly to rhodopsin's cytoplasmic COOH-terminal tail, which encodes an apical targeting determinant in polarized epithelial Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells. We demonstrate that Tctex-1 and RP3 compete for binding to dynein intermediate chain and that overexpressed RP3 displaces endogenous Tctex-1 from dynein complexes in MDCK cells. Furthermore, replacement of Tctex-1 by RP3 selectively disrupts the translocation of rhodopsin to the MDCK apical surface. These results directly show that cytoplasmic dynein function can be regulated by its subunit composition and that cytoplasmic dynein is essential for at least one mode of apical transport in polarized epithelia.

7 m4 L  \+ T9 X( hCytoplasmic dynein, a multisubunit minus-end microtubule motor, appears to be able to recognize its cargoes in a spatially and temporally regulated manner, but we do not understand the basis of this regulation. A potential mechanism for generating dynein cargo binding selectivity is subunit heterogeneity, as several dynein subunits have been implicated as adapters between the dynein complex and specific cargo molecules (Steffen et al. 1997 ; Purohit et al. 1999 ; Puthalakath et al. 1999 ; Tai et al. 1999 ). There are as many as three or four known cytoplasmic dynein heavy chains (HCs),1 perhaps each with a preferential tissue and subcellular localization (Vaisberg et al. 1996 ; Criswell and Asai 1998 ). At least five distinct intermediate chain (IC) polypeptides are expressed in neurons (Pfister et al. 1996 ). Finally, two closely related 14-kD dynein light chains (LCs), named Tctex-1 and RP3, have recently been identified (King et al. 1996 , King et al. 1998 ). Although there is much indirect evidence that dynein complexes with differing subunit compositions have different functions, a direct demonstration has not yet been performed.6 y( v; e. }( j9 h& `

The functions of polarized cells, including epithelial cells and neurons, are dependent on the generation and maintenance of plasma membrane asymmetry. Although the requirement for microtubule motors in fast axonal transport is well-established (Schnapp and Reese 1989 ; Martin et al. 1999 ), the role of such motors in post-Golgi transport in polarized epithelial cells is not fully understood. The microtubules in polarized epithelial cells, such as Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells, are longitudinally arrayed, with their minus and plus ends located at the apical and basal membranes, respectively (Bacallao et al. 1989 ). This arrangement poses the interesting possibility that a subset of apical and basolateral carrier vesicles use dynein and kinesin, respectively, to move from the TGN to their respective membrane destinations. This hypothesis has been further supported by the observation that intact microtubules are required for some apical protein targeting in polarized MDCK cells (Parczyk et al. 1989 ; Breitfeld et al. 1990 ). However, no in vivo evidence has yet been provided to demonstrate that dynein is required for the apical transport of a protein in polarized epithelial cells.: o- g- d/ l4 u% b! B; A, M

Rhodopsin, a phototransducing G protein–coupled receptor, is polarized to the photoreceptor outer segment in vivo; mutations in the cytoplasmic COOH terminus of rhodopsin prevent its correct polarization in photoreceptors (Sung et al. 1994 ; Li et al. 1996 ). Recently, we have shown that this region of rhodopsin functionally interacts with the dynein complex via the 14-kD dynein LC Tctex-1 (Tai et al. 1999 ). Interestingly, the cytoplasmic COOH terminus of rhodopsin is also required for the apical targeting of rhodopsin in polarized MDCK cells (Chuang and Sung 1998 ). Thus, it is likely that the polarized distribution of rhodopsin in MDCK cells, as in rod photoreceptors, is mediated by the direct interaction of rhodopsin's cytoplasmic apical targeting signal with cytoplasmic dynein.

Our previous observation that Tctex-1, but not its homologue RP3, interacts with rhodopsin's COOH terminus (Tai et al. 1999 ), prompted us to hypothesize that RP3-containing dynein complexes would not be able to interact with rhodopsin. In this report, we show that ectopic expression of RP3 in MDCK cells displaces endogenous Tctex-1 from the cytoplasmic dynein complex. Such displacement results in the selective missorting of rhodopsin, as well as a subset of endogenous apical proteins in MDCK cells. Our data represent functional evidence that Tctex-1–mediated dynein function is essential for the apical targeting of some membrane proteins in polarized epithelia. Taken together, our results demonstrate directly that dynein's cargo specificity, and hence function, can be regulated by its subunit composition.1 v( I0 J) Q- `; N. p6 U% C! ]

The plasmids encoding glutathione S-transferase (GST)–Tctex-1 and GST-RP3 were described in Tai et al. 1998 . Constructs for in vitro transcription/translation were prepared by inserting FLAG-tagged Tctex-1 and RP3 downstream of the T7 promoter in pBluescript II SK(-) (Stratagene). For eukaryotic expression of RP3, FLAG-tagged RP3 was subcloned into the mammalian expression vector pRK-5 (BD PharMingen) under the control of a cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter. Green fluorescent protein (GFP) was expressed using the pEGFP-c1 vector (CLONTECH Laboratories, Inc.). For tetracycline-regulated FLAG-RP3, the EGFP coding sequence in the vector pBI-EGFP (CLONTECH Laboratories, Inc.) was replaced by the coding sequence for FLAG-RP3, thus placing the FLAG-RP3 sequence downstream of a minimal CMV promoter under the control of a tetracycline-responsive element. Details for all of the above subcloning strategies are available on request.

The MDCK/T23 cell line (gift of Dr. K. Mostov ; Barth et al. 1997 ) was used for inducible expression of FLAG-RP3. The T23 cell line stably expresses the tetracycline-controlled transactivator. As a result, the expression of genes under the control of a tetracycline-responsive element can be activated in MDCK/T23 cells by withdrawal of doxycycline from the medium. Stable T23 cell lines inducibly expressing FLAG-RP3 (T23/FLAG-RP3) were generated by transfection with a FLAG-RP3 construct under the control of a tetracycline response element (see above). Stable lines were obtained by selection in 200 μg/mL hygromycin and 100 ng/mL doxycycline to maintain FLAG-RP3 repression. For polarity assays, cells were plated at high density onto 24-mm Transwell filters and allowed to form polarized monolayers.

For the microtubule depolymerization experiments, a rhodopsin-expressing MDCK stable line grown on Transwell filters (Chuang and Sung 1998 ) was treated with 33 μM nocodazole (33 mM stock in DMSO) or 0.1% DMSO at 4°C for 30 min followed by incubation at 37°C for 3.5 h to depolymerize microtubules. Microtubule depolymerization was confirmed by -tubulin immunostaining of duplicate filters. Nocodazole treatment did not affect MDCK transepithelial resistance (data not shown; Ojakian and Schwimmer 1988 ; Parczyk et al. 1989 ). The cells underwent pulse–chase labeling with cysteine/methionine (New England Nuclear) in the presence of nocodazole or DMSO. At each chase timepoint, cells were chilled on ice and processed for domain-selective surface biotinylation (Chuang and Sung 1998 ). In brief, glycosylated surface proteins were selectively biotinylated from either the apical or basolateral side using biotin-LC-hydrazide (Pierce Chemical Co.). Cells on excised filters were lysed in 50 mM Tris, pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl, 2 mM EDTA, 1% Triton X-100, and protease inhibitors at 4°C for 30 min. After centrifugation of the lysate at 14,000 g for 15 min, biotinylated rhodopsin was isolated by sequential immunoprecipitation with rhodopsin mAb B6-30 followed by binding to streptavidin-agarose (Pierce Chemical Co.).

For the study of endogenous apical proteins in MDCK cells, T23/FLAG-RP3 cells were induced/uninduced and polarized on Transwell filters as described in the preceding paragraph. After 5 d, polarized monolayers were metabolically labeled with cysteine/methionine from the basolateral side for 4 h, chased for 1 h, and then selectively biotinylated from the apical side using sulfo-NHS-LC-biotin (Pierce Chemical Co.), which reacts with primary amines. Doxycycline was included during the labeling and chase periods for uninduced filters. After lysis, biotinylated apical proteins were recovered by streptavidin-agarose precipitation and the total recovery was quantitated by liquid scintillation counting. Equal amounts of radiolabeled biotinylated protein recovered from the apical surface were separated using two-dimensional electrophoresis (O'Farrell 1975 ) by Kendrick Laboratories. Isoelectric focusing was carried out using 2.0% pH 3.5–10 ampholines (Amersham Pharmacia Biotech) in 2.0-mm i.d. glass tubes.

To identify the dynein subunit that interacted with the 14-kD LCs, we used a blot overlay interaction assay. Purified rat brain cytoplasmic dynein was separated by SDS-PAGE and transferred to nitrocellulose. The membrane was probed with in vitro–translated, -labeled, FLAG-tagged Tctex-1 or RP3. As shown in Fig 1 A, both Tctex-1 (middle) and RP3 (right) interacted with a protein migrating with an apparent molecular weight consistent with that of dynein IC. Immunoblotting confirmed that the blot-overlay signal comigrated exactly with the band recognized by an mAb against IC (data not shown). No other interacting proteins were detected. It is likely that both LCs interact directly with IC, as no other interacting dynein–dynactin subunits were detected. Furthermore, KI disruption of the cytoplasmic dynein complex yields a IC–LC subcomplex (King et al. 1998 ), and structural analysis indicates that Tctex-1 binds directly to IC (Mok et al. 2001 ).1 e0 y9 L# h$ F9 W

In vitro–translated, -labeled FLAG–Tctex-1 and FLAG-RP3 were immunoprecipitated with anti-FLAG antibody to show that the total amount of translated FLAG–Tctex-1 or RP3 was unaffected by the addition of unlabeled competitors (lanes 1–6). FLAG–Tctex-1 and FLAG-RP3 were also immunoprecipitated by an mAb against the endogenous IC present in the translation mixture (lanes 7 and 11). Addition of excess unlabeled GST–Tctex-1 blocked the association of FLAG–Tctex-1 (lane 9) as well as FLAG-RP3 (lane 13) with IC. Similarly, excess unlabeled GST-RP3 blocked the association of FLAG–Tctex-1 (lane 10) and FLAG-RP3 (lane 14) with IC.

We then tested whether Tctex-1 and RP3 could compete with one another for binding to dynein. To this end, we noted that in vitro–synthesized FLAG–Tctex-1 and RP3 could be immunoprecipitated with an mAb against the endogenous IC present in the in vitro translation mixture (Fig 1 B, lanes 7 and 11). The interaction between FLAG–Tctex-1 and IC could be blocked by the prior addition of excess unlabeled purified GST–Tctex-1 but not by GST alone (Fig 1 B, lanes 8 and 9). Moreover, the binding of FLAG–Tctex-1 to IC could also be blocked by excess GST-RP3 (Fig 1 B, lane 10). Likewise, the binding of FLAG-RP3 to IC could be blocked by GST fusions of either Tctex-1 or RP3, but not by GST alone (Fig 1 B, lanes 12–14). Note that the addition of the GST fusion proteins had no effect on the amounts of Tctex-1 or RP3 synthesized (Fig 1 B, lanes 1–6). These results are consistent with a model in which Tctex-1 and RP3 share identical or overlapping binding sites on IC and thus compete with one another for binding to the dynein complex.

We found, to some surprise, that transient transfection of MDCK cells with FLAG-RP3 dramatically decreased endogenous Tctex-1 immunofluorescence to nearly undetectable levels (Fig 2 A). The Tctex-1 suppression resulting from RP3 overexpression was confirmed by both immunostaining and immunoblotting in stable MDCK cell lines (see Fig 4 A and 6 D). On the other hand, transient overexpression of control GFP had no effect on Tctex-1 levels (Fig 2 B). Although the molecular mechanism underlying the reduction of Tctex-1 expression is not yet clear, it is likely to be related to the ability of RP3 to displace Tctex-1 from the dynein complex (see below).

RP3 induction was accompanied by a reduction of Tctex-1 protein to undetectable levels (Fig 4 A, panel 3).

Ectopically Expressed RP3 Does Not Disrupt General Dynein Activities5 M+ y9 i& j- q( n: U

  T- ?+ [- d+ H, DCytoplasmic dynein is known to be involved in the centrosomal localization of the Golgi apparatus (Corthesy-Theulaz et al. 1992 ). Disruption of general dynein function, such as microinjection of IC antibodies and overexpression of dynactin subunits, results in dispersal of the Golgi apparatus throughout the cytoplasm (Vaisberg et al. 1996 ; Burkhardt et al. 1997 ; Harada et al. 1998 ). However, staining for the Golgi v-SNARE GS28/GOS28 (Subramaniam et al. 1996 ) did not show any alteration in the morphology or distribution of the Golgi complex in RP3-transfected MDCK cells compared with neighboring nontransfected cells (Fig 3E and Fig F). Furthermore, the distributions of transferrin receptor (recycling and early endosomes) and LAMP-1 (late endosomes and lysosomes) were not perturbed at the light microscopic level in RP3-expressing MDCK cells (data not shown).

In transfected mitotic cells, FLAG-RP3 was located on mitotic spindles (Fig 3 H), which is consistent with the known mitotic spindle localization of cytoplasmic dynein (Steuer et al. 1990 ) and Tctex-1 in particular (Campbell et al. 1998 ; Tai et al. 1998 ). Despite the absence of endogenous Tctex-1 on mitotic spindles in FLAG-RP3–expressing cells (Fig 3 G), no obviously aberrant mitotic spindles could be found among mitotic FLAG-RP3–expressing cells. Moreover, FLAG-RP3–expressing cells were not found to be blocked at any particular stage in mitosis (data not shown). These results suggest that RP3-containing cytoplasmic dynein is capable of carrying out general dynein-mediated cellular functions.

To test whether Tctex-1/cytoplasmic dynein is involved in the apical transport of rhodopsin in polarized MDCK cells, we first examined whether apical rhodopsin expression in MDCK cells was dependent on microtubule integrity. MDCK cells stably expressing rhodopsin were allowed to form polarized monolayers on Transwell filters. Microtubules were depolymerized by nocodazole before and during metabolic pulse labeling with cysteine/methionine. At various chase times, the distribution of labeled plasma membrane rhodopsin in nocodazole-treated versus mock-treated cells was assayed by a domain-selective surface biotinylation/membrane targeting assay.

Rhodopsin was highly polarized at the apical plasma membrane at 1 h chase in mock-treated cells, suggesting that rhodopsin is directly transported from the TGN to the apical surface (Fig 5). In contrast, nocodazole treatment resulted in a significant reduction of rhodopsin polarity at all chase times studied. This finding suggests that the vectorial transport of newly synthesized rhodopsin to the apical surface in MDCK cells requires intact microtubules. On the other hand, cytochalasin D, which disrupts microfilaments, had no effect on rhodopsin apical polarity (data not shown).

First, we examined rhodopsin polarity in MDCK cells transiently transfected with FLAG-RP3. In these experiments, transfected cells were allowed to become polarized on Transwell filters and were then infected with an adenoviral vector encoding rhodopsin. Using double immunofluorescent labeling, we observed that rhodopsin was distributed in a nonpolarized manner in RP3-transfected cells, whereas rhodopsin was apically expressed in untransfected cells expressing normal levels of endogenous Tctex-1 (Fig 6 A). Overexpression of GFP did not affect rhodopsin polarity in MDCK cells (Fig 6 B). Moreover, the randomization of rhodopsin plasma membrane targeting was unlikely to be due to nonspecific effects of dynein LC overexpression, because rhodopsin apical polarity was not affected by overexpression of FLAG-Tctex-1 (Fig 6 C).. d) k2 [$ X3 t' A) Q: \) [. _9 q8 F/ l

Cells were singly labeled with rhodopsin mAb (red; GFP is green) in B. In these experiments, FLAG-RP3–transfected cells are identifiable by their loss of endogenous Tctex-1 expression.

(E) CD7-Rho39 was overexpressed in uninduced (top) or induced (bottom) T23/FLAG-RP3 monolayers via an adenovirus particle transfection method. The distribution of CD7-Rho39 in relationship to the expression of Tctex-1 was examined by double labeling of CD7 mAb (red) and Tctex-1 rabbit antiserum (green). (F) The steady-state distribution of adenovirally expressed rhodopsin in uninduced (left) or induced (right) T23/FLAG-RP3 cells was determined by domain-selective surface biotinylation followed by immunoprecipitation of rhodopsin. Immunoprecipitates were separated by SDS-PAGE and transferred to nitrocellulose. Biotinylated rhodopsin was quantitated by chemifluorescence. In three independent trials using triplicate measurements on a single cell line, rhodopsin was highly polarized to the apical surface in uninduced cells. FLAG-RP3 induction resulted in a significant loss of steady-state rhodopsin polarity. Note that rhodopsin is prone to forming higher-order aggregates on SDS-PAGE; signals from multimers were also taken into consideration in quantitation. Rhodopsin expressed in tissue culture is heterogeneously N-glycosylated (Sung et al. 1991 ), accounting for the broadened bands. No signal was detected from cells infected with a control recombinant adenovirus (data not shown), indicating that all of the signal seen on this blot represents rhodopsin.

Samples were then digested with N-glycosidase F to reduce its aggregation on SDS-PAGE. Biotinylated, radiolabeled rhodopsin was separated by SDS-PAGE and quantitated by phosphorimaging.

We have shown previously that the cytoplasmic tail of rhodopsin encodes an autonomous apical sorting signal in polarized MDCK cells: addition of the COOH-terminal 39 residues of rhodopsin redirected the basolateral membrane protein CD7 to the apical membrane (Chuang and Sung 1998 ). The predominantly apical localization of CD7-Rho39 fusion protein was changed to a nonpolar distribution upon Tctex-1 suppression (Fig 6 E), whereas the basolateral localization of CD7 itself was not affected by the loss of Tctex-1 (data not shown). This result indicates that rhodopsin's COOH terminus is sufficient for Tctex-1–mediated rhodopsin apical localization in MDCK cells.

Furthermore, the replacement of Tctex-1 by RP3 in the cytoplasmic dynein complex changes the apical polarity of rhodopsin in MDCK cells. These results have two important implications. First, they provide the first demonstration in living cells that cytoplasmic dynein cargo specificity, and therefore function, can be altered by subunit composition. Second, they provide the first direct evidence in living cells that cytoplasmic dynein is functionally involved in the transport of an apical membrane protein in polarized epithelia.

Cytoplasmic Dynein Function Is Regulated by Subunit Composition" ~0 K1 V$ w' I' I" k

/ d1 K" w7 `- i- f, u& n' IMicrotubules have been likened to highways for the rapid and vectorial transport of cargoes within the cell. However, a crucial problem for the cell is how to control which cargoes are allowed onto these highways at any given time. The two major classes of microtubule motors, kinesins and dyneins, have evidently developed two very different strategies to solve this problem. The kinesins are a very large superfamily of proteins (Hirokawa 1998 ). It appears that each kinesin is specialized for a small or even unique subset of kinesin-mediated functions and cargoes. On the other hand, the number of genes encoding cytoplasmic dynein subunits is comparatively low. Therefore, other mechanisms must exist to regulate cytoplasmic dynein activity and cargo specificity.1 c1 a1 z# {3 X3 d' q" v! O

One potential mechanism of dynein regulation is protein phosphorylation (Dillman and Pfister 1994 ; Lin et al. 1994 ; Huang et al. 1999 ). It has been demonstrated recently that dynein–dynactin phosphorylation and dephosphorylation alters the organization of pigment granules in Xenopus melanophores (Reese and Haimo 2000 ).

Isoforms of virtually all of the known cytoplasmic dynein subunits have been identified. For example, as many as three or four cytoplasmic dynein HCs may exist, possibly with distinct tissue and intracellular localizations (Vaisberg et al. 1996 ; Criswell and Asai 1998 ). Different pools of anterogradely transported dynein in axons have distinct IC isoform compositions (Dillman et al. 1996 ). The observation that different dynein subunit isoforms have different intracellular distributions provides indirect support for the existence of dynein complexes with distinct subunit compositions. However, it has not yet been shown that cytoplasmic dynein complexes with different subunit compositions actually possess different functional properties, such as cargo selectivity, in vivo.

The data presented in this article provide the first direct and functional evidence that dynein function is regulated by its subunit composition. We showed that altering the Tctex-1:RP3 ratio in MDCK cells changed the LC composition and, as a result, the cargo specificity, of cytoplasmic dynein. Given the sequence similarity between Tctex-1 and RP3, as well as their variable expression in different cell types, it is conceivable that both LCs can carry out a common set of dynein-mediated housekeeping functions in addition to some distinct and specific cargo recognition functions. Indeed, we found that ectopic expression of RP3 had no adverse effects on either the structural integrity of the cytoplasmic dynein–dynactin complexes, on mitosis, or on the organization of the Golgi apparatus, endosomes, or lysosomes. This is in contrast to previous approaches using the overexpression of dynactin subunits to disrupt dynein functions (Burkhardt et al. 1997 ; Quintyne et al. 1999 ). These techniques block a wide range of dynein-mediated functions, making it difficult to specifically study individual dynein functions in isolation. Instead, the replacement of Tctex-1 by RP3 appears to selectively disrupt the Tctex-1–specific functions of cytoplasmic dynein without disturbing its other functions. Therefore, this approach also appears to be very useful for identifying additional Tctex-1–dependent apical transport processes, as well as other specific functions that Tctex-1 may have, aside from rhodopsin apical transport.

It has recently been reported that the centrosomal protein pericentrin interacts with dynein light IC (LIC; Purohit et al. 1999 ). In a manner analogous to the interaction of rhodopsin with Tctex-1 but not with RP3, pericentrin interacts with LIC1 but not with LIC2 in vitro (Tynan et al. 2000 ). However, it remains to be demonstrated that LIC1 is specifically required for pericentrin transport in vivo. Nonetheless, their findings, along with ours, strongly argue that isoform-specific binding of dynein subunits to cargo molecules may indeed be a general mechanism for generating diversity of dynein complex function./ A+ o- {8 M; E5 l1 F" W: y

The correct delivery of apical and basolateral plasma membrane proteins requires the presence of specific targeting signals. All basolateral targeting signals identified to date are located within cytoplasmic domains. It is believed that they generally function by directly interacting with cytosolic proteins, such as the AP-1 adaptor protein complex (Folsch et al. 1999 ). On the other hand, nearly all of the known apical targeting signals are noncytoplasmic, such as N-glycans and glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchorage (Ikonen and Simons 1998 ). The mechanism by which these apical targeting signals are recognized is generally believed to involve physical partitioning into glycolipid-cholesterol–enriched microdomains, or "rafts" (Simons and Ikonen 1997 ). Candidate components of an apical sorting machinery are beginning to be identified. However, the mechanisms of action of these components are not fully understood.& ?  F  Q4 q! s# J& }! n/ C

3 D# b0 Z3 q* E- B+ uIn contrast, rhodopsin's apical targeting signal is cytoplasmic. The apical transport of rhodopsin is unlikely to occur via a raft-associated pathway, since rhodopsin is highly soluble in cold Triton X-100 (Sung, C.-H., unpublished observation). This report provides direct evidence that the fidelity of rhodopsin apical transport in MDCK cells is dependent on Tctex-1–mediated dynein function. Together with our earlier observation that rhodopsin's apical targeting signal interacts directly with cytoplasmic dynein via Tctex-1, our results suggest that the vectorial translocation of a subset of apical membrane carriers is carried out by a direct interaction with cytoplasmic dynein. In addition, we have shown that there exist endogenous apical proteins in MDCK cells whose transport to the apical surface is dependent on Tctex-1; the identities of these proteins are currently being determined.( d  V2 K0 `0 W0 J0 f4 U6 h- R

It has been shown previously that immunodepletion of dynein from cytosol in an in vitro transport assay reduced the efficiency of apical transport of influenza HA (Lafont et al. 1994 ). Interestingly, the transport of HA is generally thought to be mediated by raft microdomains (Simons and Ikonen 1997 ). It would thus be of interest to investigate the possible interrelationship between rafts and microtubule-mediated transport.4 j/ y7 T+ p9 F! o

, T% `6 P8 G0 t5 v1 |3 {, uThe mechanisms that determine cell surface polarity appear to be fairly plastic, as the surface distributions of various proteins have been reported to vary in a tissue-dependent, and even stimulus-dependent manner (Zurzolo et al. 1992 , Zurzolo et al. 1993 ; van Adelsberg et al. 1994 ). In order for cells to be able to selectively control the surface distributions of different proteins, it is likely that multiple classes of apical and basolateral sorting signals exist, each with distinct mechanisms of recognition and transport that can be individually regulated from tissue to tissue. The sorting signal present in rhodopsin's cytoplasmic tail may represent an example of this functional diversity of apical targeting pathways in polarized epithelia.
