The components of cell wall of Chlamydomonas are Glycoproteins and Oligosaccharides.
For more elaborate additional information, here is some more explanation in detail-
- Glycoproteins are polypeptides(protein chains) that are linked to carbohydrates(oligosaccharides) .
- In this case, the carbohydrates are Oligosaccharides.
- Oligosaccharides are carbohydrates with 2-10 monosaccharide residues
- Examples of Oligosaccharides are Arabinose and galactose.
- Polypeptide chains of protein are linked to cabohydrates (oligosaccharide) by Glycosidic linkage.
- Glycoprotein is mostly rich in hydroxyproline. This hydroxyproline is an amino acid.Because the cell wall is mostly made of glycoproteins, it is called proteinaceous in structure.
