Tubules of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) spread into the buds of yeast by an actin-based mechanism and, upon entry, become attached to the polarisome, a proteinaceous micro-compartment below the tip of the bud. The minimal tether between polarisome and cortical ER is formed by a protein complex consisting of Epo1, a member of the polarisome, Scs2, a membrane protein of the ER and Cdc42 guanosine triphosphatase-activating protein Bem3. Here, we report the crystal structure of a complex between Epo1 and Bem3. In addition, we characterize through the hydrogen/deuterium (H/D) exchange assay the interface between Scs2 and Epo1. Our findings provide a first structural insight into the molecular architecture of the link between cortical ER and the polarisome.
