Phosphatidic acid is a central intermediate of biosynthetic lipid metabolism as well as an important signaling molecule in the cell. These studies assess the internalization, or retrograde transport, and metabolism of phosphatidic acid in yeast using a fluorescent analog. An analog of phosphatidic acid fluorescently labeled at the sn-2 position with N-4-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1, 3-diazole-aminocaproic acid (NBD-phosphatidic acid) was introduced to yeast cells by spontaneous transfer from phospholipid vesicles. Transport and metabolism of the NBD-phosphatidic acid were then monitored by fluorescence spectrophotometry, fluorescence microscopy and routine biochemical methods. Primary metabolites of the NBD-phosphatidic acid in yeast were found to be NBD-diacylgycerol and NBD-phosphatidylinositol. Experiments in cells possessing different levels of phosphatidate phosphatase activity suggest that conversion of the NBD-phosphatidic acid to NBD-diacylglycerol is not a pre-requisite for internalization in yeast. Internalization is sensitive to decreased temperature, but neither ATP depletion nor a sec6-4 mutation, which interrupts endocytosis, has an affect. Thus, internalization of NBD-phosphatidic acid apparently occurs via a non-endocytic route. These characteristics of retrograde transport of NBD-phosphatidic acid in yeast differ significantly from transport of other NBD-phospholipids in yeast as well as NBD-phosphatidic acid transport in mammalian fibroblasts.
