Cover photograph (Copyright © 2009, American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved.): Participation of chitin-like structures in the surface architecture of Cryptococcus neoformans. Cell wall chitin (blue), chitooligomers (red), and capsular glucuronoxylomannan (green) are components of the cell envelope of cryptococci. Regulation of chitin synthesis by a synthetic inhibitor affects cellular morphology and capsular dimensions, suggesting a role for this structural polymer in the assembly of the cell surface of C. neoformans.
