Abstract

Surmmary

Isolated hyphal walls from and were hydrolysed and compared in quantitative composition. A high carbohydrate content was found in all these walls (80–90%); also a small amount of glucosamine (1–2%), lipids (1–2.5%) and protein. Quantitatively the cell walls differed appreciably in protein (1–11%). Five neutral sugars (glucose, galactose, mannose, rhamnose, ribose) were detected by chromatography; glucose was always the main monosaccharide. From the results of acid-extraction of walls and enzymic hydrolysis it was concluded that a portion of cell-wall polysaccharide was cellulose (30–45%). The amino acids found were those typical of normal protein hydrolysates and containing also hydroxyproline.
