Abstract


Vps34p is a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase that is part of a membrane-associated complex with the Vps15p protein kinase. This kinase complex is required for the delivery of soluble proteins to the lysosomal/vacuolar compartment of eukaryotic cells. This study examined the Vps34p-Vps15p association and identified the domains within each protein that were important for this interaction. Using several different approaches, the interaction domain within Vps34p was mapped to a 28-amino acid element near its C terminus. This Vps34p motif was both necessary and sufficient for the interaction with Vps15p. Two-hybrid mapping experiments indicated that two separate regions of Vps15p were required for the association with Vps34p; they are the N-terminal protein kinase domain and a set of three tandem repeats of about 39 amino acids each. Neither domain alone was sufficient for the interaction. These Vps15p repeat elements are similar in sequence to the HEAT motifs that have been implicated in protein interactions in other proteins, including the Huntingtin protein. Finally, these studies identified a novel motif at the very C terminus of Vps34p that was required for phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase activity. This domain is highly conserved specifically in all Vps34p-like phosphatidylinositol 3-kinases but is not required for the interaction with Vps15p. This study thus represents a first step toward a better understanding of how this Vps15p.Vps34p kinase complex is assembled and regulated in vivo.
