The retromer complex has a well-established role in endosomal protein sorting, being necessary for maintaining the dynamic localization of hundreds of membrane proteins that traverse the endocytic system. Retromer function and dysfunction is linked with neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and many pathogens - both viral and bacterial - exploit or interfere in retromer function for their own ends. In this review, the history of retromer is distilled into a concentrated form that spans the identification of retromer to recent discoveries that have shed new light on how retromer functions in endosomal protein sorting and why retromer is increasingly being viewed as a potential therapeutic target in neurodegenerative disease.
