An essential role for a protein and lipid kinase complex in secretory protein sorting.

Yeast genetics has identified more than 40 genes involved in the biogenesis and maintenance of the yeast lysosome-like vacuole. Recent data on two of these genes, VPS15 and VPS34, are beginning to provide some fundamental insights into the mechanisms governing protein sorting within the eukaryotic secretory pathway. VPS15 and VPS34 encode a novel protein kinase and a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, respectively, that function together as components of a membrane-associated signal transduction complex. These studies of the VPS15-VPS34 complex indicate that intracellular protein trafficking decisions may be regulated by protein phosphorylation and phosphatidylinositol signalling events.[1]
