General annotation (Comments)

Function

Involved in cell wall organization and biosynthesis. Confers cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH).

Subcellular location

Secretedcell wall. Membrane; Lipid-anchorGPI-anchor. Note: Covalently-linked GPI-modified cell wall protein (GPI-CWP). Ref.1

Post-translational modification

The GPI-anchor is attached to the protein in the endoplasmic reticulum and serves to target the protein to the cell surface. There, the glucosamine-inositol phospholipid moiety is cleaved off and the GPI-modified mannoprotein is covalently attached via its lipidless GPI glycan remnant to the 1,6-beta-glucan of the outer cell wall layer.

Polymorphism

Half of the downstream region (residues 1035 to 1713) of the AWA1 gene was lost in the nonfoaming strain K701 due to a chromosomal recombination event.

Biotechnological use

Responsible for the thick foam layer formation on the sake mash during the fermentation process. Ref.1

Miscellaneous

'Awa' means 'foam' in Japanese.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the SRP1/TIP1 family.
