Abstract

Intact Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells were biotinylated with the non-permeable sulfosuccinimidyl-6-(biotinamido) hexanoate reagent. Twenty specifically labelled cell wall proteins would be extracted and visualized on SDS gels via streptavidin/horseradish peroxidase. Nine cell wall proteins were released by SDS extraction under reducing conditions and were designated Scw1-9p for (soluble cell wall proteins); five proteins were released from SDS-extracted cell walls by laminarinase (Ccw1-5p for covalently linked cell wall proteins) and six with mild (30 mM-NaOH, 4 degrees C, 14 h) alkali treatment (Ccw6-11p). N-terminal sequences of the Ccw proteins 6, 7, 8 and 11 showed that these cell wall proteins are members of the PIR gene family (predicted proteins with internal repeats), CCW6 being identical to PIR1 and CCW8 to PIR3. Single gene disruptions of all four genes did not yield a phenotype. In the CCW11 disruption the Ccw11p as well as the laminarinase-extracted Ccw5 protein was missing. The new cell wall proteins are O-mannosylated, contain a Kex2 processing site, but no C-terminal GPI anchor sequence.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
