Abstract: The MNN2 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been cloned by complementation of the mnn2 mutant phenotype scored by a change in cell surface carbohydrate structure resulting from a lack of alpha 1----2-mannose branching in the outer chain. The gene was subcloned as a3 kb DNA fragment that integrated at the MNN2 locus, and a gene disruption yielded the mnn2 phenotype. A lacZ-MNN2 gene fusion protein, produced in Escherichia coli, was used to raise a specific antiserum that recognizeda 65 kD wild-type yeast protein. This MNN2 gene product lacks N-linked carbohydrate but appears to be an integral membrane protein. Overproduction of MNN2p does not enhance the alpha 1----2-mannosyltransferase activity of yeast cells. The results suggest that MNN2p is a Golgi-associated protein that is involved in mannoprotein sorting rather than glycosylation.
