This review deals with the cell wall (CW), a poorly known surface structure of the cell of mycelial fungi. Data are presented concerning (i) isolation techniques and purity control methods securing the absence of the cytoplasm content in the CW fraction and (ii) the chemical composition of the CW. The structural (backbone) and intrastructural components of the CW, such as aminopolysaccharides, α- and β-glucans, proteins, lipids, uronic acids, hydrophobins, sporopollenin, and melanins, are… CONTINUE READING
