    Notes: Abstract The Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell adhesion protein a-agglutinin is composed of an anchorage subunit (Aga1p) and an adhesion subunit (Aga2p). Although functional a-agglutinin is expressed only by a cells, previous results indicated that AGA1 RNA is expressed in both a and α cells after pheromone induction. Expression of the Aga2p adhesion subunit in a cells allowed a-agglutinability, indicating that a cells express the a-agglutinin anchorage subunit, although no role for Aga1p in α cells has been identified. Most of the a-specific agglutination-defective mutants isolated previously were defective in AGA1; a single mutant (La199) was a candidate for an aga2 mutant. Expression of AGA2 under PGK control allowed secretion of active Aga2p from control strains but did not complement the La199 agglutination defect or allow secretion of Aga2p from La 199, suggesting that the La199 mutation might identify a new gene required for a-agglutinin function. However, the La199 agglutination defect showed tight linkage to aga2::URA3 and did not complement aga2::URA3 in a/a diploids. The aga2 gene cloned from La199 was nonfunctional and contained an ochre mutation. The inability of pPGK-AGA2 to express functional Aga2p in La199 was shown to result from an additional mutation(s) that reduces expression of plasmid-borne genes. AGA2 was mapped to the left arm of chromosome VII approximately 28 cM from the centromere.

    Notes: The rate of formation of spheroplasts of yeast can be used as an assay to study the structural integrity of cell walls. Lysis can be measured spectrophotometrically in hypotonic solution in the presence of Zymolyase, a mixture of cell wall-digesting enzymes. The optical density of the cell suspension decreases as the cells lyse. We optimized this assay with respect to enzyme concentration, temperature, pH, and growth conditions for several strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The level of variability (standard deviation) was 1-5% between trials where the replications were performed on the same culture using enzyme prepared from the same lot, and 5-15% for different cultures of the same strain. This assay can quantitate differences in cell wall structure (1) between exponentially growing and stationary phase cells, (2) among different S. cerevisiae strains, (3) between S. cerevisiae and Candida albicans, (4) between parental and mutated lines, and (5) between drug- or chemically-treated cells and controls. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: Trypsinized cells from embryonic chick neural retina redistributed concanavalin A receptors to patches and caps. Between 12 and 16 days of development, the ability to redistribute concanavalin A receptors declined. This restriction in mobility of the receptors was accompanied by changes in susceptibility to the capping-inhibitory drugs colchicine and cytochalasin B.
