Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The cell wall of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici was digested with chitinase to analyze the structure of its chitinous components. In spite of a similar acetylation degree of the cell wall components to that of 25-35% acetylated chitosan, only N-acetylglucosamine disaccharide [(GlcNAc)2] was obtained from chitinase hydrolyzate of the fungal cell wall by CM-Sephadex C-25 column chromatography, while (GlcNAc)2 and several types of deacetylated chitooligosaccharides were separated from that of 25-35% acetylated chitosan. The results indicate that N-acetylglucosamine residues in the polysaccharide chains of the fungal cell wall are most likely condensed into some region, while acetylated residues are more scattered in 25-35% acetylated chitosan.
