Fungi are eukaryotic cells. Special characteristics of fungi are the plasmalemma with a cell membrane containing ergosterol and the cell wall consisting of glycopeptides and chitin. This special membrane composition is the site of action for most anti-fungal drugs.


Antibacterial drugs also affect fungi.


Fungi are eukaryotic cells with 40S and 60S ribosomal subunits, endoplasmic reticulum, and Golgi apparatus.
