In yeast, enzymes with β-glucanase activity are thought to be necessary in morphogenetic events that require controlled hydrolysis of the cell wall. Comparison of the sequence of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae exo-β(1,3)-glucanase Exg1 with the Schizosaccharomyces pombe genome allowed the identification of three genes that were named exg1(+) (locus SPBC1105.05), exg2(+) (SPAC12B10.11), and exg3(+) (SPBC2D10.05). The three proteins have different localizations: Exg1 is secreted to the periplasmic… CONTINUE READING
