Opekarova M, et al. (2002) Phosphatidyl ethanolamine is essential for targeting the arginine transporter Can1p to the plasma membrane of yeast. Biochim Biophys Acta 1564(1):9-13
Abstract: In continuation of our previous study, we show that phosphatidyl ethanolamine (PE) depletion affects, in addition to amino acid transporters, activities of at least two other proton motive force (pmf)-driven transporters (Ura4p and Mal6p). For Can1p, we demonstrate that the lack of PE results in a failure of the permease targeting to plasma membrane. Despite the pleiotropic effect of PE depletion, a specific role of PE in secretion of a defined group of permeases can be distinguished. Pmf-driven transporters are more sensitive to the lack of PE than other plasma membrane proteins.
