The fungal cell wall is an essential structure which protects cells from various environmental stresses such as hyper- or hypo-osmosis, and endows them with specific morphology in response to their life or cell division cycle. In addition, the cell wall has a variety of enzymatic activities per se, which are required for nutritional uptake, secretion, and cell adhesion including mating processes. In addition to these cytological interests, clinical demands to clarify the regulatory mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
