Polysaccharide composition of Extracellular matrix

Range 60% glucose: 8% mannose: 32% galactose
Organism Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Reference Beauvais A et al, Characterization of a biofilm-like extracellular matrix in FLO1-expressing Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells. FEMS Yeast Res. 2009 May9(3):411-9PubMed ID19207290
Method Cell wall analysis-Total hexose determination was performed using the phenol sulphuric acid procedure with glucose as the standard (Dubois et al., 1956). Total hexosamine was measured after hydrolysis with 8 N HCl for 4 h at 100 °C (Johnson, 1971).
Comments Cell wall composition is ~85% polysaccharides: 15% proteins (BNID 104590)
