Shibata N, et al. (1996) Existence of novel branched side chains containing beta-1,2 and alpha-1,6 linkages corresponding to antigenic factor 9 in the mannan of Candida guilliermondii. J Biol Chem 271(16):9259-66
Abstract: Isolation of beta-linkage-containing side chain oligosaccharides from the mannan of Candida guilliermondii IFO 10279 strain has been conducted by acetolysis under mild conditions. A structural study of these oligosaccharides by one- and two-dimensional NMR and methylation analyses indicated the presence of extended oligosaccharide side chains with two consecutive beta-1,2-linked mannose units at the nonreducing terminal of alpha-linked oligosaccharides. The linkage sequence present in this mannan, Man beta 1-->2Man alpha 1-->3Man alpha-->, has also been found in the mannan of Saccharomyces kluyveri but not in the mannan of Candida species. Furthermore, these oligosaccharides are branched at position 6 of the 3-O-substituted mannose units as follows. (Carbohydrate sequence in text) Structure 1 and (Carbohydrate sequence in text) Structure 2 The H-1 signals of the mannose units substituted by a 3,6-di-O-substituted unit showed a significant upfield shift (delta delta = 0.04-0.08 ppm) due to a steric effect. The inhibition of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay between the mannan of C. guilliermondii and factor 9 serum with oligosaccharides obtained from several mannans indicated that only the oligosaccharides with the above structure were active, suggesting that these correspond to the epitope of antigenic factor 9.
