We report here that an atypical basic motif within the cytoplasmic tails of AMPA-type glutamate receptors directly associates with mu2-adaptin by a mechanism similar to the recognition of the presynaptic vesicle protein synaptotagmin 1 by AP-2.

Conversely, the intracellular localization of mutant GLUT8-LL/AA is restored by replacing the LL motif in GLUT8 with the transferrin receptor-derived mu2-adaptin binding motif YTRF, indicating that for endocytosis both AP-2 binding motifs can substitute for each other.

We show that recognition of the FDNPVY signal is mediated by a binding site in the mu2-subunit that is distinct from the site for the more general YppØ sorting signal, another tyrosine-based sequence also recognized by mu2-adaptin.
