In opposition to the relatively hard cell walls of other algae, those of the majority of red algae are flexible and soft, what is due to the co-existence of great quantities of amorphous material and relatively scarce fibrilar components. The intercellular matrix of carrageenophytes is mainly composed of highly sulphated polygalactans, with D-galactose and anhidro-D-galactose, in contrast with the less sulphated agars, where the anhydro-L-galactose is predominant.
