Protein transport between the trans-Golgi network and endosomes is mediated by transport vesicles formed by the adaptor-protein complex AP-1, consisting of the adaptins gamma1, beta1, mu1, sigma1. Mammalia express mu1A ubiquitously and isoform mu1B in polarized epithelia. Mouse gamma1 or mu1A 'knock out's revealed that AP-1 is indispensable for embryonic development. We isolated mu1A and mu1B from Danio rerio. Analysis of mu1A and mu1B expression revealed tissue-specific expression for either one during embryogenesis and in adult tissues in contrast to their expression in mammalia. mu1B transcript was detected in organs of endodermal derivation and "knock-down" experiments gave rise to embryos defective in formation of intestine, liver, and pronephric ducts. Development ceased at 7-8 dpf. mu1B is not expressed in murine liver, indicating loss of mu1B expression and establishment of alternative sorting mechanisms during mammalian development.
