Effect of pH on bacteria in early log phase

Abstract

The bacteria harvested in the early log phase lyse when they are submitted to a pH above 10. The peptidoglycan is not degraded in these conditions. Thus, the authors used these properties to extract the peptidoglycan from several gram negative and gram positive bacteria.

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.
