Abstract

Kidney proximal tubular cells (PTCs) are highly specialized for ultrafiltrate reabsorption and serve as paradigm of apical epithelial differentiation. Vps34/PI3-kinase type III (PI3KC3) regulates endosomal dynamics, macroautophagy and lysosomal function. However, its in vivo role in PTCs has not been evaluated. Conditional deletion of Vps34/PI3KC3 in PTCs by Pax8-Cre resulted in early (P7) PTC dysfunction, manifested by Fanconi-like syndrome, followed by kidney failure (P14) and death. By confocal microscopy, Vps34∆/∆ PTCs showed preserved apico-basal specification (brush border, NHERF-1 versus Na+/K+-ATPase, ankyrin-G) but basal redistribution of late-endosomes/lysosomes (LAMP-1) and mis-localization to lysosomes of apical recycling endocytic receptors (megalin, cubilin) and apical non-recycling solute carriers (NaPi-IIa, SGLT-2). Defective endocytosis was confirmed by Texas-red-ovalbumin tracing and reduced albumin content. Disruption of Rab-11 and perinuclear galectin-3 compartments suggested mechanistic clues for defective receptor recycling and apical biosynthetic trafficking. p62-dependent autophagy was triggered yet abortive (p62 co-localization with LC3 but not LAMP-1) and PTCs became vacuolated. Impaired lysosomal positioning and blocked autophagy are known causes of cell stress. Thus, early trafficking defects show that Vps34 is a key in vivo component of molecular machineries governing apical vesicular trafficking, thus absorptive function in PTCs. Functional defects underline the essential role of Vps34 for PTC homeostasis and kidney survival.
