The yeast cell wall contains an unusually high number of different mannoproteins. The physiological role of most of them is unknown and gene disruptions leading to depletion of different proteins do not affect major functions of the wall. In this work the phenotype of different single and multiple cell wall protein mutants was observed at the level of(More)
The cell wall defines the shape and provides osmotic stability to the yeast cell. It also serves to anchor proteins required for communication of the yeast cell with surrounding molecules and other cells. It is synthesized as a complex structure with β-1,3-glucan chains forming the basic network to which β-1,6-glucan, chitin and a number of mannoproteins(More)
