Extension of a reporter protein with the carboxyterminal thirty amino acids of the cell wall mannoprotein alpha-agglutinin of Saccharomyces cerevisiae resulted in incorporation of the chimeric protein in the cell wall. By Western analysis it was shown that the incorporated protein contained beta-1,6-glucan similar to endogenous cell wall proteins, whereas excreted reporter protein was not glucosylated. This suggests that beta-1,6-glucan is involved in anchoring mannoproteins in the cell wall.
