Abstract : The cell wall of Aureobasidium (Pullularia) pullulans contains three types of beta-glucan. One, extracted with dilute alkali, has a linear backbone of essentially (1 to 3)-linked glucose residues part of which are substituted by single glucose residues in the 6-position. The cell wall material insoluble in dilute alkali contains a highly crystalline, essentially linear linked glucan and an amorphous glucan. (Author)
