The peptidoglycan, the secondary cell wall polymer (SCWP), and the surface layer (S-layer) glycoprotein are the major glycosylated cell wall components of Paenibacillus alvei CCM 2051. In this report, the complete structure of the SCWP, its linkage to the peptidoglycan layer, and its physicochemical properties have been investigated. From the combined evidence of chemical and structural analyses together with one- and two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, the following… CONTINUE READING
