Abstract

Protein transduction domains such as those derived from the HIV protein TAT have great potential as vectors for delivery of therapeutic entities such as genes and proteins into cells. Extensive studies have shown that a major fraction of the most studied variants enters cells via an endocytic mechanism. However, controversy surrounds the exact uptake mechanism and whether a specific pathway is utilised. Studies showing inhibition of uptake of protein transduction domains in the presence of ion-transport inhibitors such as amiloride and its more potent analogue 5-(N-ethyl-N-isopropyl) amiloride (EIPA) suggest a link between peptide internalisation and macropinocytosis. In this study, using immunolabelling of early and late components of the endocytic pathway, we show that treatment of cells with EIPA and to a lesser extent amiloride affects the morphology and subcellular location of early, late endosomes and lysosomes. Enlarged early and late endocytic structures were observed in EIPA-treated cells, and these organelles accumulated in a perinuclear region. Results from experiments investigating the effects of EIPA on distribution of fluorescent octaarginine were in agreement with the immunolocalisation studies. Treatment of the CD34+ leukaemia cell line KG1a with EIPA in the presence of fluorescent conjugates of HIV–TAT peptide and octaarginine showed distinct vesicular staining in agreement with untreated cells but EIPA-treated cells were additionally characterized by increased localization of the peptides in the cytosol. At levels previously shown to inhibit uptake of HIV–TAT peptide and octaarginine in other cell lines, EIPA was without major effect on uptake of both peptides in KG1a cells.
