Structural study of a cell-wall mannan of Saccharomyces kluyveri IFO 1685 strain. Presence of a branched side chain and beta-1,2-linkage


, : Structural study of a cell-wall mannan of Saccharomyces kluyveri IFO 1685 strain. Presence of a branched side chain and beta-1,2-linkage. European Journal of Biochemistry 217(1): 1-12

Acetolysis of the cell-wall mannan of Saccharomyces kluyveri under mild conditions, gave fragments with 1-6 mannose residues. The structures of mannopentaose and mannohexaose were determined to be [Formula; see text] respectively, by two-dimensional homonuclear Hartmann-Hahn spectroscopy and a sequential NMR assignment method that combines 1H-13C correlated spectroscopy, relayed coherence transfer spectroscopy, 1H-detected heteronuclear multiple-bond connectivity and methylation analysis. The H1 proton chemical shift of a neighboring alpha-1,2-linked mannose unit of the 3-O-substituted structure was shifted upfield by the addition of a mannose unit to the adjacent 3-O-substituted unit by an alpha-1,6 linkage. The characteristic H1--H2-correlated cross-peak of the alpha-1,3-linked mannose unit substituted by a beta-1,2 linkage, beta 1-->2Man alpha 1-->3, in the mannan of S. kluyveri, as also found by two-dimensional homonuclear Hartmann-Hahn spectroscopy in the mannan of Candida guilliermondii, a pathogenic yeast in man.
