Vacuolar protein sorting 35 (VPS35) regulates receptor recycling from endosomes. A mutation in VPS35 (D620N) leads to autosomal-dominant, late-onset Parkinsons disease. A knock-in mouse model was used to study the neurobiology of VPS35 D620N. In brain tissue, we confirm previous findings that the mutation results in reduced binding of VPS35 with WASH-complex member FAM21, and robustly elevated phosphorylation of the LRRK2 kinase substrate Rab10. In cultured cortical neurons, the mutation results in increased endosomal recycling protein density (VPS35-FAM21 co-clusters and Rab11 clusters), glutamate release, and GluA1 surface expression. LRRK2 kinase inhibition exerted genotype-specific effects on GluA1 surface expression, but did not impact glutamate release phenotypes. These results improve our understanding of the early effects of the D620N mutation on cellular functions that are specific to neurons. These observations provide candidate pathophysiological pathways that may drive eventual transition to late-stage parkinsonism in VPS35 families, and support a synaptopathy model of neurodegeneration.
