Fungal Cell Wall: Structure, Synthesis and Assembly presents a comprehensive examination of this subject and explores the reasons for the cell wall's importance to the survival of fungi. Topics covered include the composition and structure of the fungal cell wall and how they are affected by endogenous and external factors; the structure and synthesis of glucans, chitin, and glycoproteins; and the mechanisms of secretion, organization and final assembly of the cell wall components. The book also features bibliographical coverage, which provides insight into the historical development of current ideas and the basis of current trends in research. The book is intended for students and researchers in biology, microbiology, mycology, botany, and medical and plant pathology.
