A number of plasma membrane glycoproteins of mammalian and protozoan origin are released from cells by phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C. Some of these proteins have been shown to be attached to the lipid bilayer via a covalently linked, structurally complex glycophospholipid. Here we establish the existence of similarly linked glycoproteins in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The most abundant of these is a tightly membrane-bound glycoprotein of 125 kd. The detergent-binding… CONTINUE READING
