  author={Edgar Lederer and Arlette Adam and Rita Ciorbaru and J F Petit and Juana Wietzerbin},
  journal={Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry},
In the following pages we intend to update and to expand a previous review 'The Mycobacterial cell wall' published in 19711 . Many new facts on the chemical structure have come to light since then and the last few years have witnessed a rapid expansion of our knowledge of the interesting biological properties of compounds derived from the cell walls of Mycobacteria and related organisms especially the Nocardiae. We shall first discuss the chemistry, then the biological properties involved.
