The investigation of yeast cell walls attracts attention of scientists in practically all biological areas, from biotechnology to molecular biology. Among a wide range of yeast species and genera studied, Saccharomyces cerevisiae is certainly the best explored microorganism and a substantial amount of data is reported on the structure, biosynthesis, morphology and different changes in the cell wall during the growth, budding, mating and sporulation of cells. The aim of this review is to present a short survey of information available on this cellular structure, with a special emphasis on the individual components of the S. cerevisiae cell wall, glucane, mannan, chitin and proteins.
