Abstract: The cation-independent mannose 6-phosphate (M6P)/Insulin-like growth factor-2 receptor (CI-MPR/IGF2R) is an ∼300 kDa transmembrane protein responsible for trafficking M6P-tagged lysosomal hydrolases and internalizing IGF2. The extracellular region of the CI-MPR has 15 homologous domains, including M6P-binding domains (D) 3, 5, 9, and 15 and IGF2-binding domain 11. We have focused on solving the first structures of human D7–10 within two multi-domain constructs, D9–10 and D7–11, and provide the first high-resolution description of the high-affinity M6P-binding D9. Moreover, D9 stabilizes a well-defined hub formed by D7–11 whereby two penta-domains intertwine to form a dimeric helical-type coil via an N-glycan bridge on D9. Remarkably the D7–11 structure matches an IGF2-bound state of the receptor, suggesting this may be an intrinsically stable conformation at neutral pH. Interdomain clusters of histidine and proline residues may impart receptor rigidity and play a role in structural transitions at low pH.
