AbstractInorganic pyrophosphatases are required for anabolism to take place in all living organisms. Defects in genes encoding these hydrolytic enzymes are considered inviable, although their exact nature has not been studied at the cellular and molecular physiology levels. Using a conditional mutant in IPP1, the Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene encoding the cytosolic soluble pyrophosphatase, we show that respiring cells arrest in S phase upon Ipp1p deficiency, but they remain viable and resume growth if accumulated pyrophosphate is removed. However, fermenting cells arrest in G1/G0 phase and suffer massive vacuolization and eventual cell death by autophagy. Impaired NAD(+) metabolism is a major determinant of cell death in this scenario because demise can be avoided under conditions favoring accumulation of the oxidized pyridine coenzyme. These results posit that the mechanisms related to excess pyrophosphate toxicity in eukaryotes are dependent on the energy metabolism of the cell.
