Abstract We have recently presented a molecular model of the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Here we discuss the evidence that a similar model is also valid for Candida albicans. We further discuss how cell-wall proteins are linked to the skeletal layer of the wall, and their potential functions. We emphasize that the composition and structure of the cell wall depends on growth conditions. Finally, cell-wall damage seems to activate a salvage mechanism resulting in restructuring of the cell wall.
