FIGURE 4: Cell wall structure before and after hyper-osmotic stress. The cell wall is shown as a transmission electron microscopy image (left) and as a schematic drawing (right). After osmotic dehydration (hyper-osmotic shock) the cell wall becomes much more compact and thicker. In the schematic drawing, this is indicated as the β-glucan helical structures acting like springs being compressed.
