Abstract


Different distribution patterns of the arginine/H+ symporter Can1p, the H+ plasma membrane ATPase Pma1p, and the hexose transport facilitator Hxt1p within the plasma membrane of living Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells were visualized using fluorescence protein tagging of these proteins. Although Hxt1p-GFP was evenly distributed through the whole cell surface, Can1p-GFP and Pma1p-GFP were confined to characteristic subregions in the plasma membrane. Pma1p is a well-documented raft protein. Evidence is presented that Can1p, but not Hxt1p, is exclusively associated with lipid rafts, too. Double labeling experiments with Can1p-GFP- and Pma1p-RFP-containing cells demonstrate that these proteins occupy two different nonoverlapping membrane microdomains. The size of Can1p-rich (Pma1p-poor) areas was estimated to 300 nm. These domains were shown to be stable in growing cells for >30 min. To our knowledge, this is the first observation of a cell polarization-independent lateral compartmentation in the plasma membrane of a living cell.
