The Fungal Cell Wall: An Armour and a Weapon for Human Fungal Pathogens (PDF) shows, that the fungal cell wall is important for the ecology and biology of all fungi and especially for human fungal pathogens. Students will learn, that the composition of the fungal cell wall is a different structure, which cannot be discovered in the human host. Consequently, the chapters outline, how the immune systems of both humans and animals have changed to recognize unique and conserved elements of the fungal cell wall. As an application example, the authors also demonstrate, that the three-dimensional structures of the cell wall are excellent targets for the development of chemotherapeutic strategies and antifungal agents.
