Biosynthesis of Bacterial Cell Walls | SpringerLink
Although most bacteria have a reasonably simple morphology in being round (cocci) or rods (bacilli), we observe a remarkable difference in the spatial organisation of the cell wall synthesis machinery. Many rod-shaped bacteria position theiralong the lateral axis of the cell. This is true for Gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli, but also for the Gram-positive organism Bacillus subtilis.
Cell Wall Biosynthesis - eLS: Essential for Life Science
Bacterial morphogenesis and cytokinesis are accomplished by highly complex protein machinery that catalyses the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. The peptidoglycan (or murein) is a unique structure to bacterial cells and therefore a prime target of many potent antibiotics.
