Name
peptidoglycan-based cell wall
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
murein sacculus, peptidoglycan, envelope
Definition
A protective structure outside the cytoplasmic membrane composed of peptidoglycan (also known as murein), a molecule made up of a glycan (sugar) backbone of repetitively alternating N-acetylglucosamine and N-acetylmuramic acid with short, attached, cross-linked peptide chains containing unusual amino acids. An example of this component is found in Escherichia coli. Source: ISBN:0815108893, GOC:mlg
