Abstract


Saccharomyces cerevisiae Kre6 is a type II membrane protein essential for cell wall ?-1,6-glucan synthesis. Recently we reported that the majority of Kre6 is in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), but a significant portion of Kre6 is found in the plasma membrane of buds, and this polarized appearance of Kre6 is required for ?-1,6-glucan synthesis. An essential membrane protein, Keg1, and ER chaperon Rot1 bind to Kre6. In this study we found that in mutant keg1-1 cells, accumulation of Kre6 at the buds is diminished, binding of Kre6 to Keg1 is decreased, and Kre6 becomes susceptible to ER-associated degradation (ERAD), which suggests Keg1 participates in folding and transport of Kre6. All mutants of the calnexin cycle member homologues (cwh41, rot2, kre5, and cne1) showed defects in ?-1,6-glucan synthesis, although the calnexin chaperon system is considered not functional in yeast. We found synthetic defects between them and keg1-1, and Cne1 co-immunoprecipitated with Keg1 and Kre6. A stronger binding of Cne1 to Kre6 was detected when two glucosidases (Cwh41 and Rot2) that remove glucose on N-glycan were functional. Skn1, a Kre6 homologue, was not detected by immunofluorescence in the wild type yeast, but in kre6? cells it became detectable and behaved like Kre6. In conclusion, the action of multiple ER chaperon-like proteins is required for proper folding and localization of Kre6 and probably Skn1 to function in ?-1,6-glucan synthesis.
