  65. Peptidoglycan is a polymer of millions of N-acetylglucosamine (NAG) and
    N-acetylmuramic acid (NAM) sugars based on glucose molecules linked
    together in long chains cross-braced with four amino acids that link
    individual polymer chains together in a chain-link fence pattern. Layers
    of cross-braced NAG and NAM sheets are stacked vertically and held
    together by proteins with lipid anchors attached to the cell’s
    cytoplasmic membrane to form a scaffold of sugars and proteins that is
    able to hold the bacterial cell’s shape, even in response to extreme
    osmotic pressures. How would you expect a microbiology student to be
    able to describe the composition of peptidoglycan?What is the composition of the peptidoglycan layers found in the cell wall of bacteria?
    short amino acid chains, NAG, NAM, and some lipid proteins
  66. gram postive contains these 3 things
    • thick peptidoglycan wall
    • single lipid bilayer membrane

  67. gram neg contains these 4 things
    • thin peptidoglycan wall
    • double lipid bilayer membrane
    • periplasmic space
    • lipopolysacharrides
  68. At this point in writing your tutorial, you have to find a way to get
    across to the students the importance of a cell wall to a bacterium. How
    do you convey that the bacterial cell will be at the mercy of its
    environment? The cell wall will need to act as a support mechanism to
    neutralize the inflow or outflow of water that would alter the shape of
    the cell. The cell cannot search out for a better place in the
    environment that has more available water; or if there is water that it
    has a high enough solute concentration that the cell will not gain
    water. Because that's the problem for a bacterial cell, it cannot
    control the tonicity due to solute concentrations in the surrounding
    water. Water will flow in or out depending on solute concentrations and
    the only thing a bacterial cell can do to keep from collapsing due to
    water loss or rupturing due to too much water coming in is to have a
    strong cell wall that will hold its shape regardless of the osmotic
    pressures. The rigidity of the cell wall will maintain a set shape
    regardless of water flow. The proteins and lipids that anchor the
    cytoplasmic membrane to the cell wall will tether the membrane to the
    peptidoglycan layer so that when environmental conditions result in the
    loss of water from the cell, the membrane will not collapse in on
    itself. Similarly, changes in environmental conditions that would result
    in the inflow of water would expand the volume of the cell to the
    limits of the cell wall and no more.The composition of the cell wall
    allows for the expansion and contraction of the cell wall in response
    to the gain or loss of water from the cell. t or f
  69. A cell wall is a requirement for all living bacteria.
  70. Image of a single round bacterium.
  71. Image of a single rodishaped bacterium.
  72. Image of a cluster of round bacteria.
  73. Image of a string of rodishaped bacteria.
  74. Image of a vibrio (commaishaped) bacterium.
  75. Image of a corkscrewishaped spirochete bacterium.
  76. With the description of the
    different cell walls, membranes, and associated proteins set in the
    students' minds, you now need to introduce them to the idea that the
    cell wall can also act as a foundation to build things upon. Bacterial
    appendages require a strong foundation that will offer the support
    needed to move and function in a dynamic world. For example, flagella
    are long, whiplike protein structures that are used by many
    Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria for locomotion. In order to
    function effectively, a flagellum must be firmly anchored to the cell
    wall. How will you be able to get across the idea that the peptidoglycan
    cell wall is strong enough to support such a mechanism? With a protein
    rod that passes through the cell wall and protein rings used to anchor
    it in the membranes, these basal bodies are the rudimentary biological
    motors that use ATP power to spin the hook and the flagella attached to
    it.Bacterial flagella have a biological motor that spins within the
    cell wall and is powered by ATP. This allows the flagella to spin in a
    whiplike motion to propel the bacterium.

    a chain-link fence
  94. What role do the teichoic acids play within the cell wall of Gram-positive bacteria?
    They serve to stabilize the cell wall and hold it in place.
  95. The region between the outer
    and inner membranes of a Gram-negative bacterial cell is known as the
    __________, and it is the location of enzymes that assemble
    periplasmic space
  96. A patient is infected with
    Gram-negative bacteria and is experiencing only mild symptoms. When the
    patient is given an antibiotic causing lysis of the bacterial cells, he
    suddenly experiences an increase in inflammation and fever, as well as
    the formation of blood clots. What explanation best describes what
