Abstract

Sedimentation method has been used to study hen egg-white lysozyme binding to glucosylated (from T2 phage) and non-glucosylated (from calf thymus) DNA under conditions similar to physiological ones (pH 7,3--7,4, ionic strength 0.07--0.24). The results indicate that lysozyme binds cooperatively to both DNA's. Binding parameters have been obtained by applying the theory of one-dimensional adsorption of small molecules on a linear homopolymer. X-ray patterns of complexes with different protein content have been obtained.

Bacterial Cell Wall Structure (ASM)

Bacterial cell walls are made of peptidoglycan (also called murein), which is made from polysaccharide chains cross-linked by unusual peptides containing D-amino acids. Here is the latest research on bacterial cell wall structures.
