Abstract

SUMMARY

The wall structure of the fission yeast , examined by enzymic techniques, consists of a galactomannan, an α-glucan and -glucan. The structures of the α-glucan and galactomannan were investigated by methylation. The wall structure is discussed in relation to the taxonomic position of the genus .
