Current Biology Vol 18 No 10R404store and load MHC class IIproteins in the MVB-like MHC classII compartment (MIICs) and manyhaematopoietic cells create an MVB-like compartment, the exosome,which releases internal vesicles thatcan regulate immune responses byfusion with the plasma membrane.In neurons, signalling information iscarried from the nerve terminal tothe cell body in non-acidic MVB-likestructures, within which tetanus toxincan hitch a ride. In melanocytes,MVBs represent a critical stage in thebiogenesis of melanosomes.Any medical implications? Loads.One could think of the MVB pathwayas a tumour suppressor pathway.Sequestration of receptor tyrosinekinases away from the cytosolimmediately terminates signalling andlysosomal degradation modulatesreceptor levels. The ubiquitin E3 ligasec-Cbl, which tags receptor tyrosinekinases for sorting to the MVB, isan established proto-oncogene.Functional MVBs are required forfusion of the endo-lysosomal systemwith pre-autophagosomal structures...
