Abstract

P-type Ca-transporting ATPases are Ca pumps, extruding cytosolic Ca to the extracellular environment or the intracellular Ca store lumens. In budding yeast, Pmr1 (plasma membrane ATPase related), and Pmc1 (plasma membrane calcium-ATPase) cannot be deleted simultaneously for it to survive in standard medium. Here, we deleted two putative Ca pumps, designated AnPmrA and AnPmcA, from , and obtained the mutants Δ and Δ, respectively. Then, using Δ as the starting strain, the promoter of its was replaced with the promoter to secure the mutant Δ or its was deleted completely to produce the mutant ΔΔ. Different from the case in , double deletion of and was not lethal in . In addition, deletion of and/or had produced growth defects, although overexpression of AnPmc1 in Δ could not restore the growth defects that resulted from the loss of AnPmrA. Moreover, we found AnPmrA was indispensable for maintenance of normal morphogenesis, especially in low-Ca/Mn environments. Thus, our findings suggest AnPmrA and AnPmcA might play important roles in growth, morphogenesis and cell wall integrity in in a different way from that in yeasts.
