Unicellular organisms live under diverse stressful conditions and must respond and adapt quickly to these stresses. When these stresses persist, cells favor a transition to quiescence. There are changes to many processes when cells begin their entry into quiescence. It has been reported that Hsp82 plays an important role in several such processes, and its distribution and activity change according to nutrient conditions. In this study, we found that the subcellular distribution of Hsp82 is regulated by its co-chaperone Ppt1. Under starvation conditions, Ppt1 expression was significantly reduced by a TOR-independent pathway. Furthermore, we found that Ppt1 regulates Hsp82 distribution in the cytoplasm and nucleus by dephosphorylating the S485 residue on Hsp82. The Hsp82S485A strain has impaired membrane-related protein transport, and its cell size did not become larger in quiescence compared to log phase, resulting in failure to survive during starvation.
