Vesicles formed from endoplasmic reticulum (ER) by a cell-free system of leek cells (Allium porrum) are enriched in phosphatidylserine (PS), especially species containing very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA, at least 20 carbon atoms). In plant cells, PS is formed either by PS synthase or the serine exchange enzyme, although it is not known which pathway(s) contribute(s) to PS delivery in the ER-derived vesicles (EV), nor to what extent this occurs. Taking advantage of a cell-free system, we have shown that PS enrichment originates mainly from the serine exchange enzyme which is the only pathway that synthesizes the VLCFA-PS species. On the other hand, both enzymes synthesize PS with long chain fatty acids (up to 18 carbon atoms), but these species are given to the EV by PS synthase.
