Abstract : Modifications were developed in methods to isolate fungal cell wall fractions which limit to 15-20%. Composition of cell walls was analyzed -- principally glucan and chitin. Proportions vary with species. Fibrillar structure is composed mainly of chitin, concentrated in outer layer. Increase of glucan was observed at site of budding. Ultrastructure was studied in budding process. (Author)
