Abstract


Btn2p is a novel coiled coil cytosolic protein in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We report that Btn2p interacts with Yif1p, a component of a protein complex at the Golgi that functions in ER to Golgi transport. Deletion of Btn2p, btn2-delta, results in mis-localiztion of Yif1p to the vacuole. Therefore, Btn2p may have an apparent role in intracellular trafficking of proteins. Btn2p was originally identified as being up-regulated in a btn1-delta strain, which exhibits dysregulation of vacuolar pH, and this up-regulation of Btn2p was presumed to contribute to maintaining a stable vacuolar pH [Pearce et al. Nat. Genet. 22 (1999) 55]. We propose that up-regulation of Btn2p in btn1-delta is an indicator of altered trafficking within the cell, and as btn1-delta serves as a model for the lysosomal storage disorder Batten disease, that altered intracellular trafficking may contribute to some of the cellular pathological hallmarks of this disease.
