The carbohydrate compositions of cell wall were determined in the strains of class Urediniomycetes, mainly ballistoconidium-forming yeasts and related taxa. The major component of cell wall was mannose, and glucose was included as the second component, but xylose was not detected in any strain. Out of 41 strains examined, 39 contained galactose, 14 contained arabinose and 12 contained rhamnose. As a minor component, fucose was detected in 30 strains but not in 11 strains.
