Chitinase is required for cell separation during growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae chitinase described by Correa et al. (Correa, J. U., Elango, N., Polacheck, I., and Cabib, E. (1982) J. Biol. Chem. 257, 1392-1397) has been cloned and sequenced.Expand
Large scale identification of genes involved in cell surface biosynthesis and architecture in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The sequenced yeast genome offers a unique resource for the analysis of eukaryotic cell function and enables genome-wide screens for genes involved in cellular processes. We have identified genesExpand
Transporters of nucleotide sugars, ATP, and nucleotide sulfate in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus.
The lumens of the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus are the subcellular sites where glycosylation, sulfation, and phosphorylation of secretory and membrane-bound proteins, proteoglycans, andExpand
Guanosine diphosphatase is required for protein and sphingolipid glycosylation in the Golgi lumen of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Current models for nucleotide sugar use in the Golgi apparatus predict a critical role for the lumenal nucleoside diphosphatase. After transfer of sugars to endogenous macromolecular acceptors, theExpand
The chsD and chsE genes of Aspergillus nidulans and their roles in chitin synthesis.
Two chitin synthase genes, chsD and chsE, were identified from the filamentous ascomycete Aspergillus nidulans. In a region that is conserved among chitin synthases, the deduced amino acid sequencesExpand
Chitin Synthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae in Response to Supplementation of Growth Medium with Glucosamine and Cell Wall Stress
ABSTRACT In Saccharomyces cerevisiae most chitin is synthesized by Chs3p, which deposits chitin in the lateral cell wall and in the bud-neck region during cell division. We have recently found thatExpand
The evolution of N-glycan-dependent endoplasmic reticulum quality control factors for glycoprotein folding and degradation
Asn-linked glycans (N-glycans) play important roles in the quality control (QC) of glycoprotein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) lumen and in ER-associated degradation (ERAD) of proteins byExpand
Classification of fungal chitin synthases.
Comparison of the chitin synthase genes of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CHS1 and CHS2 with the Candida albicans CHS1 gene (UDP-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine:chitin 4-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase, ECExpand

The synthesis of asparagine-linked oligosaccharides involves the formation of a lipid-linked precursor oligosaccharide that has the composition Glc3Man9GlcNAc2. We have used a [3H]mannose suicideExpand
The diversity of dolichol-linked precursors to Asn-linked glycans likely results from secondary loss of sets of glycosyltransferases.
The vast majority of eukaryotes (fungi, plants, animals, slime mold, and euglena) synthesize Asn-linked glycans (Alg) by means of a lipid-linked precursor dolichol-PP-GlcNAc2Man9Glc3. Knowledge ofExpand
