Abstract

-Glucosidase I regulates trimming of the terminal -1,2-glucose residue in the -glycan processing pathway, which plays an important role in quality control systems in mammalian cells. Previously, we identified the gene encoding -glucosidase I in the opportunistic human fungal pathogen , namely Af. Deletion of the Af gene results in a severe reduction of conidia formation, a temperature-sensitive deficiency of cell wall integrity, and abnormalities of polar growth and septation. An upregulation of the genes encoding Rho-type GTPases was also observed, which suggests activation of the cell wall integrity pathway in the mutant. Using 2D gel analysis, we revealed that the proteins involved in protein assembly, ubiquitin-mediated degradation and actin organization are altered in the ΔAf mutant. Evidence was obtained for a defect in the polarized localization of the actin cytoskeleton in the mutant. Our results suggest that blocking of the glucose trimming in might induce accumulation of misfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum; these misfolded proteins are probably required for cell wall synthesis and thus activate the cell wall integrity pathway, which then causes the abnormal polarity associated with the ΔAf mutant.
