Anionic phospholipids PI(4,5)P and phosphatidylserine (PS) are enriched in the cytosolic leaflet of the plasma membrane where endocytic sites form. In this study, we investigated the roles of PI(4,5)P and PS in clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) site initiation and vesicle formation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Live-cell imaging of endocytic protein dynamics in an mss4 mutant, which has severely reduced PI(4,5)P levels, revealed that PI(4,5)P is required for endocytic membrane invagination but is less important for endocytic site initiation. We also demonstrated that, in various deletion mutants of genes encoding components of the Rcy1-Ypt31/32 GTPase pathway, endocytic proteins dynamically assemble not only on the plasma membrane but also on intracellular membrane compartments, which are likely derived from early endosomes. In rcy1? cells, fluorescent biosensors indicated that PI(4,5)P only localized to the plasma membrane while PS localized to both the plasma membrane and intracellular membranes. Furthermore, we found that polarized endocytic patch establishment is defective in the PS-deficient cho1? mutant. We propose that PS is important for directing endocytic proteins to the plasma membrane and that PI(4,5)P is required to facilitate endocytic membrane invagination.
