Abstract

Summary: was treated with a mixture of toluene and ethanol to make it permeable to small molecules. This treatment unmasked a glucan synthetase activity which was assayed with UDP-[U-C]glucose. About 60 % of the polymer formed was β(1 → 3)glucan. No labelled lipids were detected.

The C incorporated was recovered in a particulate membrane preparation isolated by differential centrifugation. When the particles themselves were assayed for glucosyl transfer activity none was found.

The toluene-treated preparations also catalysed the transfer of mannosyl residues from GDP-mannose to polymeric materials by a process independent of glucosyl transfer.
