Rab5 is an early endosome marker [22], Rab7 is a late endosome marker [23], and Rab11 is a marker for the Golgi apparatus and recycling endosome [24].
The location of AP-1 in the Golgi apparatus and endosomes depends on its direct binding to Arf (ADP-ribosylation factor)-1 and specifically in recycling endosomes, to Arf-6, among other protein complexes (31).
We also checked the co-localization of VGLUT1-positive vesicles with other lysosomal markers, including early endosomes with EAA1 (13 [+ or -] 7.3% for n = 5 cells, Figure 1(h)) [34] and the recycling endosomes with transferrin receptor (18 [+ or -] 7% for n = 5 cells, Figure 1(i), 35]).
