A) Both have glycopeptide
B) Both are made up of N-acetyl glycosamine
C) Both are made up of N-acetyl muramic acid
D) Both are made up of chitin
Correct Answer: B
Solution :In bacteria, cell wall is made up of polysaccharide, proteins and lipids. In the cell wall of bacteria, there are two important sugar derivatives are found, ie, NAG and NAM (N-acetyl glucosamine and N-acetyl muramic acid) and besides L or D-alanine, D-glutanic acid and diaminopimelic acid are also found. The cell wall of fungi is mainly made up of chitin and cellulose. While chitin is a polymer of N-acetyl glucosamine, the cellulose is a polymer of d-glucose.
