Evidence is presented that demonstrated that the 45- and 104-kDa forms of phosphatidate phosphatase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Morlock, K. R., McLaughlin, J. J., Lin, Y.-P., and Carman, G. M. (1991) J. Biol. Chem. 266, 3586-3593) were regulated differentially by phosphorylation. Purified 45-kDa phosphatidate phosphatase was phosphorylated by cAMP-dependent protein kinase whereas purified 104-kDa phosphatidate phosphatase was not phosphorylated. cAMP-dependent protein kinase catalyzed the phosphorylation of pure 45-kDa phosphatidate phosphatase at a serine residue which resulted in a stimulation (2.4-fold) of phosphatidate phosphatase activity. Alkaline phosphatase catalyzed the dephosphorylation of pure 45-kDa phosphatidate phosphatase which resulted in an inhibition (1.3-fold) of phosphatidate phosphatase activity. Results of studies using mutants (bcy1 and cyr1) defective in cAMP- dependent protein kinase activity corroborated the results of the phosphorylation studies using pure preparations of phosphatidate phosphatase. The 45-kDa phosphatidate phosphatase phosphorylated in vitro and in vivo had phosphopeptides in common. The activation of the GAL10-RAS2(val19) allele in mutant cells resulted in an increase in the synthesis of diacylglycerols and triacylglycerols. These results were consistent with the phosphorylation and activation of 45-kDa phosphatidate phosphatase by cAMP-dependent protein kinase in vivo.
