Abstract: Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase) is a key regulatory enzyme of gluconeogenesis. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, it is only expressed when cells are grown in medium with nonfermentable carbon sources. Addition of glucose to cells leads to inactivation of FBPase and degradation via the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Polyubiquitination of FBPase is carried out by the Gid complex, a multi-subunit ubiquitin ligase. Using tandem affinity purification and subsequent mass spectrometry we identified the Hsp70 chaperone Ssa1 as a novel interaction partner of FBPase. Studies with the temperature-sensitive mutant ssa1-45(ts) showed that Ssa1 is essential for polyubiquitination of FBPase by the Gid complex. Moreover we show that degradation of an additional gluconeogenic enzyme, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, is also affected in ssa1-45(ts) cells demonstrating that Ssa1 plays a general role in elimination of gluconeogenic enzymes.CI - Copyright (c) 2010.
