    Notes: Abstract Inhibition of the synthesis of alkali-insoluble glucan by aculeacin A in Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells caused a decrease in the incorporation of a high molecular weight heterogeneous mannoprotein material and of a 33000 mannoprotein into the wall network. This was concomitant with the excretion of the latter molecule into the growth medium. Regenerating yeast protoplasts liberated considerable amounts of the heterogeneous material to the medium independently of the presence of aculeacin. The protoplast walls did lack this component and contained only minor amounts of the 33000 molecule, which was also completely absent from walls of aculeacin-treated protoplasts. Considerable levels of the 33000 species were immunodetected in the supernatants from treated and untreated protoplasts. These results point to the existence of specific interactions between the glucan network of the yeast cell surface and some of the wall mannoproteins. On the other hand, the presence of a population of SDS-solubilizable mannoproteins in the wall was independent of glucan levels.

    Notes: Abstract Mannoproteins from cell walls of Saccharomyces cerevisiae synthesized at successive stages of the population growth cycle have been solubilized with Zymolyase and subsequently analyzed. The major change along the population cycle concerned a large size mannoprotein material; the size of the newly-synthesized molecules varied from 120,000–500,000 (mean of about 200,000) at early exponential phase to 250,000–350,000 (mean of about 300,000) at late exponential phase. These differences are due to modifications in the amount of N-glycosidically linked mannose residues, since the size of the peptide moiety was 90,000–100,000 at all growth stages and the level of O-glycosylation changed only slightly. After, incubation of the purified walls with concanavalin A-ferritin and subsequent analysis by electron microscopy, labelling was localized at the external and internal faces of the walls. The middle space of these was labelled after digestion of the glucan network with Zymolyase, which demonstrate the presence of mannoproteins in close contact with the structural glucan molecules throughout the wall.

    Notes: Abstract The effect of lithium on the sodium-dependent high-affinity system for tryptophan uptake was examined in plasma membrane vesicles derived from rat brain. We demonstrated that Na+ could be replaced by lithium in the external medium and the presence of lithium produced an increase in theV max of the tryptophan transport whereas it had no significant effect on theK m for the substrate. Plasma membrane vesicles derived from synaptosomes obtained from long-term lithium-treated rats are able to accumulate tryptophan to a greater extent than normal rats and maintain a more negative membrane potential than controls. Our data support the idea that the stimulation by lithium of the high-affinity uptake system for tryptophan by maintaining adequate membrane potentials across the membrane, could lead to the stabilization of serotonin production, as has been demonstrated in long termlithium treatment.
