AbstractA survey of the constituents of the polysaccharides of 31 species of fungi (12 genera) has been made. On the basis of two of the constituents, glucuronic acid and fucose, the extracellular preparations could be classified into three groups. Mucor and Rhizopus species produced material containing glucuronic acid and fucose, in addition to galactose, glucose, and mannose. Fusarium and Trichoderma species yielded glucuronic acid but not fucose and the remainder yielded neither glucuronic acid nor fucose. The intracellular preparations could be classified into two groups on the basis of the presence or absence of fucose. Those from Mucor and Rhizopus species yielded fucose whereas the remainder did not. Glucosamine occurred in all intracellular preparations and glucuronic acid was absent.
