原始语种摘要: Phosphatidate phosphatases (PAH) play a central role in lipid metabolism and intracellular signaling. Herein, we report the presence of a low-molecular-weight PAH homolog in the single-celled ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila . In vitro phosphatase assay showed that TtPAH2 belongs to the magnesium-dependent phosphatidate phosphatase (PAP1) family. Loss of function of TtPAH2 did not affect the growth of Tetrahymena . Unlike other known PAH homologs, TtPAH2 did not regulate lipid droplet number and ER morphology. TtPAH2 did not rescue growth and ER/nuclear membrane defects of the pah1∆ yeast cells, suggesting that the phosphatidate phosphatase activity of the protein is not sufficient to perform these cellular functions. Surprisingly, TtPAH2 complemented the respiratory defect in the pah1∆...
