Figure 1 shows chromatograms of the profile of the molecular exclusion for protein standards of molecular weights ranging from 12.4 to 200 kDa (Figure 1a), and that obtained of a representative yeast cell wall autolyzate, strain Sc4 (Figure 1b); the latter suggesting mannoproteins were present with molecular weights of less than 200 kDa (peaks at approximately 200, 150, 80, 60 and 10 KDa).

The monosaccharide composition of the hydrolyzed polymers extracted from yeast cells' autolyzates showed a totally different profile (Figure 2b).
