Abstract

In and most of the alkali-insoluble (1→3)-β-D/(1→6)-β--glucan of the wall can be extracted with dimethyl sulphoxide. The same fraction, and in a small additional fraction, can be extracted by a destructive procedure involving 40% NaOH at 100 C. The small fraction of the glucan which resists this treatment becomes soluble after a subsequent treatment with HNO indicating that it is covalently linked to chitin in the wall. In contrast, in and , nearly all the (1→3)-βD-/(1→6)β--glucan appears to be held insoluble by linkage to chitin.
