Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0009276 - Gram-negative-bacterium-type cell wall

Synonyms: 1-2nm peptidoglycan-based cell wall, cell wall inner membrane

Definition: The peptidoglycan layer of the Gram-negative cell envelope. In Gram-negative cells the peptidoglycan is relatively thin (1-2nm) and is linked to the outer membrane by lipoproteins. In Gram-negative cells the peptidoglycan is too thin to retain the primary stain in the Gram staining procedure and therefore cells appear red after Gram stain.
