SUMMARY: A 1,3-β-glucanosyltransferase which introduces intrachain 1,6-β linkages into1,3-β-glucan was isolated from the cell wall of Aspergillus fumigatus. The biochemical and molecular characterization of the A. hnigatus transferase showed it was homologous to the Sacchammyces cerevisiae and Candida albicans transferase BglZp. A null mutant constructed in A. fumigatus by gene replacement did not show a distinct phenotype from the parental strain. The putative function of this major cell-wall-associated protein is discussed.
