Abstract

Monitoring Editor: Akihiko Nakano Synthetic genetic array (SGA) analyses identify powerful genetic interactions between a thermosensitive allele (sec14-1(ts)) of the structural gene for the major yeast phosphatidylinositol transfer protein (SEC14) and a structural gene deletion allele (tlg2Delta) for the Tlg2 t-SNARE. The data further demonstrate Sec14 is required for proper TGN/endosomal dynamics in yeast. Paradoxically, combinatorial depletion of Sec14 and Tlg2 activities elicits trafficking defects from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and these defects result are accompanied by compromise of the unfolded protein response (UPR). UPR failure occurs downstream of Hac1 mRNA splicing, and is further accompanied by defects in TOR signaling. The data link TGN/endosomal dynamics with ceramide homeostasis, UPR activity and TOR signaling in yeast, and identify the Sit4 protein phosphatase as a primary conduit through which ceramides link to the UPR. We suggest combinatorial Sec14/Tlg2 dysfunction evokes inappropriate turnover of complex sphingolipids in endosomes. One result of this turnover is potentiation of ceramide-activated phosphatase-mediated down-regulation of the UPR. These results provide new insights into Sec14 function, and emphasize the TGN/endosomal system as a central hub for homeostatic regulation in eukaryotes.
