The yeast S. cerevisiae cell wall comprising a 10 nm thick layer of polysaccharides, predominantly beta(1,3)-glucan and proteins, is the interface between the cell and the neighbouring environment. As such it is not a static entity but rather one that is dynamically remodelled in response to changes in the environmental conditions. We have recently proposed from studies using yeast cells lacking the gene encoding Hsp12p (Deltahsp12 yeast) and from incorporation of Hsp12p into agarose, used as a… CONTINUE READING
