    Notes: Abstract Hypocotyls of dark-grown 6-day-old seedlings of Phaseolus vulgaris L. proved to be sufficiently homogeneous to permit studies relating the rate of cell elongation to the composition of the primary cell walls. Whereas the levels of cellulose and uronic acids remained practically constant during and after cell extension, all other components showed major or minor changes. Cell-wall protein, as such, decreased by more than 50%, but indications are that hydroxyproline-rich glycoprotein increased with a decreasing rate of cell elongation, concomitant with a rise in the degree of arabinosylation of wall-bound hydroxyproline. As cell elongation slowed down, non-cellulosic glucose accumulated, presumably in the form of a β-(1–4)glucan closely associated with cellulose. These findings confirm the notion that the primary cell wall is a highly dynamic structure.

    Notes: Abstract The arabinosylation patterns of wall-bound hydroxyproline in Phaseolus vulgaris L. cell suspension cultures were determined by separating free hydroxyproline and hydroxyproline-arabinose oligomers over a Bio-Gel P-2 column. Total hydroxyproline accounted for about 3.3% of wall dry weight during all growth phases of batch-cultured bean cells. The chemical arabinosylation patterns of wall-bound hydroxyproline varied during the lag phase and early log phase of the culture. First, an increase in nonglycosylated hydroxyproline occurred accompanied by a corresponding decrease in hydroxyproline tetra-arabinoside. During the early log phase the reverse happened. In later stages of growth the chemical arabinosylation patterns remained constant. The radiochemical arabinosylation patterns were also determined, after pulselabeling the cultures with [14C]proline at various times during growth, to be able to distinguish recently incorporated hydroxyproline. The time course of the arabinosylation pattern of this fraction indicated that the initial changes in the chemical pattern were due to the temporary incorporation of less extensively glycosylated hydroxyproline-containing protein into the cell wall.

    Notes: Abstract Sex-specific agglutinins from the cell surface of haploid cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (X2180, mta and mtα) were purified and analysed. The constitutive agglutinin from mta cells was extractable with 3 mM dithiothreitol. It was shown to be a glycoprotein (3% mannose) with an apparent Mr of 43,000 based on gel filtration, but in SDS-PAGE it behaved as a much smaller molecule (Mr between 18,000 and 26,000). About one in three amino acids was a hydroxyamino acid. Its biological activity was resistant to boiling for 1 h, but sensitive to pronase. Intact mtα cells retained their agglutinability in the presence of dithiothreitol but limited trypsinizing released a biologically active agglutinin fragment. It had an apparent Mr of 320,000 (gel filtration). When analysed by SDS-PAGE, a single diffuse band with an apparent Mr of 225,000 was observed. The protein was 94% (w/w) mannose with a trace of N-acetyl glucosamine. Its biological activity was almost completely lost after boiling for 1 h. Both agglutinins behaved as monovalent molecules and specifically inhibited the biological activity of both noninduced and pheromone-induced cells. Pheromone treatment of mta cells resulted in an apparent 32-fold increase in agglutinin activity at the cell surface, whereas pheromone treatment of mtα cells only doubled the apparent agglutinin activity.
