The structure of an extracellular mannan formed by the yeastBullera tsugae has been studied. It has been shown that the repeating unit of this polysaccharide contains β-(1→3)- and β-(1→4)-bound D-mannopyranose residues in equimolar ratio. A comparison has been made of the polymer under investigation with the extracellular mannan from a yeast of the genusRhodotorula.
