Abstract

A peptidoglycan layer of Y. pseudotuberculosis cell wall was isolated from cells after treatment with sodium dodecylsulphate and digestion with pronase. The isolated peptidoglycan contained glucosamine, muramic acid, alanine, glutamic acid and diaminopimelic acid in the approximate molar ratio of 1:0.8:2:1:1.

Bacterial Cell Wall Structure

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.
