The consequence of re-routing the trafficking of CB1 receptors from the plasma membrane to lysosomes may act as a spatial and temporal means of regulating CB1 receptor signalling. Using the CB1 receptor antagonist hemopressin (a membrane impermeable ligand) and the cell-permeable agonist WIN55212-2, Rozenfeld et al. (Rozenfeld and Devi, 2008) showed the functionality of intracellular CB1 receptors by demonstrating the time-dependent phosphorylation of ERK 1/2. Moreover, these findings were supported by data demonstrating that the late endosomal–lysosomal marker Rab7 and CB1 receptor, AP-3δ, Gαi and pERK1/2 all appear in the same fraction from sucrose gradient subcellular-fractionation experiments, indicating that these proteins form a functional intracellular signalling complex (Rozenfeld and Devi, 2008).
