Abstract

In metazoans, certain calmodulin-related calcium-binding proteins (recoverins, neurocalcins and frequenins) are found at highest levels in excitable cells, but their physiological roles are largely uncharacterized. Here we show that Saccharomyces cerevisiae contains a frequenin homologue, Frq1, and that its target is Pik1, a phosphatidylinositol-4-OH kinase. Frq1 binds to a conserved sequence motif in Pik1 outside Pik1's catalytic domain and stimulates its activity in vitro. N-myristoylated Frq1 may also assist in Pik1 localization.
