Glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored proteins are essential for normal cellular morphogenesis and have an additional role in mediating cross-linking of glycoproteins to cell wall glucan in yeast cells. Although many GPI-anchored proteins have been characterized in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, none have been reported for well-characterized GPI-anchored proteins in Schizosaccharomyces pombe to date. Among the putative GPI-anchored proteins in S. pombe, four α-amylase homologs (Aah1p-Aah4p… Expand

GPI Anchored Proteins in Aspergillus fumigatus and Cell Wall Morphogenesis.
TLDR
An exhaustive list of all the GPI anchored proteins present in the Aspergillus fumigatus genome has been investigated and the phenotypic analysis of all these mutants has been characterized including their growth, conidial viability or morphology, adhesion and the ability to form biofilms. Expand
An Amylase-Like Protein, AmyD, Is the Major Negative Regulator for α-Glucan Synthesis in Aspergillus nidulans during the Asexual Life Cycle
TLDR
Results suggest the function of AmyD is to directly suppress α-glucan synthesis, but not to facilitate its degradation, suggesting AmyD may not be involved in the α- glucan degradation process. Expand
Search of latent periodicity in amino acid sequences by means of genetic algorithm and dynamic programming
The aim of this study was to show that amino acid sequences have a latent periodicity with insertions and deletions of amino acids in unknown positions of the analyzed sequence. Genetic algorithm,Expand
Targeted gene deletion in Aspergillus fumigatus using microbial machinery and a recyclable marker.
TLDR
A new gene deletion system for A. fumigatus is generated using yeast recombinational cloning and Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated transformation (ATMT) employing a recyclable marker system and it is demonstrated that it can be used to efficiently generate multiple gene deletions within a single strain.

A sensitive predictor for potential GPI lipid modification sites in fungal protein sequences and its application to genome-wide studies for Aspergillus nidulans, Candida albicans, Neurospora crassa, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe.
TLDR
A fungal big-Pi predictor has been developed for the assessment of query sequence concordance with fungi-specific recognition signal requirements, and recognizes that the human PLAP C terminus is not a target for the fungal transamidase complex. Expand
A simple and efficient procedure for transformation of Schizosaccharomyces pombe
TLDR
The transformation efficiency obtained using the procedure was approximately 8000 transformants/µg DNA, making it especially useful for a large number of samples and when a high transformation efficiency is not required. Expand
Biochemical characterization of α-amylase from the yeast Cryptococcus flavus
TLDR
During the screening of amylolytic microorganisms from Brazilian fruits, a yeast strain classified as Cryptococcus flavus exhibited the highest amylase production after 24 h of cultivation when grown on starch-containing medium. Expand
Cell wall analysis.
TLDR
A fast and reliable method to analyze changes in S. pombe cell wall composition by using specific enzymatic degradation and chemical treatment of purified cell walls is described, providing a powerful means to analyzed changes in (1,3)beta-glucan and (1),3)alpha- glucan, two main polysaccharides present in fungal cell walls.

Characterization of end4+, a gene required for endocytosis in Schizosaccharomyces pombe
TLDR
Results indicate that End4p is essential for the internalization process and Ypt7p affects endocytosis at a post‐internalization step after the intersection of the endocytic and the vacuolar protein‐sorting pathways in fission yeast. Expand
Deletion of BGL2 results in an increased chitin level in the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
Data indicate that the deletion of BGL2 results in the accumulation and abnormal incorporation of chitin into the cell wall of S. cerevisiae, and both Chs1 and Chs3 take part in a response to B GL2 deletion in S. Cerevisiae cells. Expand

TLDR
Prospects for rational engineering in this family include important members of plant origin, such as α-amylase, starch branching and debranching enzymes, and amylomaltase. Expand
Role of the α-Glucanase Agn1p in Fission-Yeast Cell Separation
TLDR
Cell division in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe yields two equal-sized daughter cells, which are then passed on to the next generation of yeast cells for further investigation. Expand

TLDR
Results confirm that Mok1p plays an important role in the normal construction of the cell wall and in the primary step of glucan bundle formation, and that it is required for new cell wall synthesis during vegetative growth. Expand
