The structure of O-linked acidic oligosaccharide from Saccharomyces cerevisiae was analyzed. The chitinase, exclusively O-glycosylated extracelluar protein, was purified from strains mnn1, mnn1 mnn4, mnn1 mnn6 and deltakre2 and the oligosaccharides were hydrolyzed by O-linked sugar chain specific hydrazinolysis. The mannosylphosphorylated mannotriose (M3-P-M) was detected in strain mnn1, but not in the other three strains (mnn1n mnn4, mnn1 mnn6 and deltakre2). alpha-Mannosidase treatment and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry of mannosylphosphorylated mannotriose revealed that mannosylphosphate was attached to a middle mannose of alpha-1,2-linked mannotriose. This result indicates that the mnn4 and mnn6 mutations affect the mannosylphosphorylation of O-linked oligosaccharide, together with that of N-linked oligosaccharide. The amount of mannosylphosphorylated mannotriose was 7% of total O-linked oligosaccharides (20% of neutral mannotriose) of chitinase in strain mnn1.
