Perturbations in phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,5)P2)-synthesizing enzymes result in enlarged endocytic organelles from yeast to humans, indicating evolutionarily conserved function of PtdIns(3,5)P2 in endosome-related events. This is reinforced by the structural and functional homology of yeast Vac14 and human Vac14 (ArPIKfyve), which activate yeast and mammalian PtdIns(3,5)P2-producing enzymes, Fab1 and PIKfyve, ...
