This paper reports a phenotypic characterization of ggp1 mutants. The cloned GGP1 (GAS1) gene, which encodes a major GPI-anchored glycoprotein (gp115) of Saccharomyces cerevisiae of unknown function, was used to direct the inactivation of the chromosomal gene in haploid and diploid strains by gene replacement. The analysis of the null mutants reveals a reduction in the growth rate of 15 to 40%. Cells are round, with more than one bud, and extensively vacuolized. In the stationary phase, mutant… CONTINUE READING
