    A method is described that measures the rate of [14C]-labelling of (1?6)-ß-D-glucan, mannoprotein, and (1?3)/(1?6)-ß-D-glucan during approximately one-tenth of the doubling time of Candida ulbicans. The labelling pattern can be used as a measure of cell-wall synthesis and to detect changes in the composition of newly constructed cell walls that might otherwise be masked by previously deposited envelope.
