Recycling endosomes (REs) are transient endosomal tubular intermediates of early/sorting endosomes (E/SEs) that function in cargo recycling to the cell surface and deliver the cell type-specific cargo to lysosome-related organelles such as melanosomes in melanocytes. However, the mechanism of RE biogenesis is largely unknown. In this study, by using an endosomal Rab-specific RNAi screen, we identified Rab22A as a critical player during RE biogenesis. Rab22A-knockdown results in reduced RE dynamics and concurrent cargo accumulation in the E/SEs or lysosomes. Rab22A forms a complex with BLOC-1, BLOC-2 and the kinesin-3 family motor KIF13A on endosomes. Consistently, the RE-dependent transport defects observed in Rab22A-depleted cells phenocopy those in BLOC-1-/BLOC-2-deficient cells. Further, Rab22A depletion reduced the membrane association of BLOC-1/BLOC-2. Taken together, these findings suggest that Rab22A promotes the assembly of a BLOC-1-BLOC-2-KIF13A complex on E/SEs to generate REs that maintain cellular and organelle homeostasis.
