The oligosaccharide of glycoproteins in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is unique in containing galactose. We isolated four mutants that had reduced amounts of galactose residues on their cell surface glycoproteins by fluorescence-activated cell sorter. The isolated four recessive mutants, gmd1 to gmd4, showed a defect in glycosylation of acid… CONTINUE READING
