Abstract

SUMMARY: Cell-wall fractions were obtained from and . Non-structural protein was removed by successive washes in urea, NHOH and formic acid. Amino acid analyses indicated that structural wall proteins were acidic. Aspartic acid was the free amino terminal residue of the protein in both species. Comparison of the ‘maps’ of peptic peptides indicate that there may be some homology between the wall proteins of the two fungi.
