Crystalline cell surface layers (S-layers) composed of planar assemblies of protein or glycoprotein subunits are one of the most commonly observed cell envelope structures of bacteria and archaea. Isolated S-layer subunits of numerous organisms are able to assemble into monomolecular arrays either in suspension, at liquid-surface interfaces, including lipid films, on liposomes and on solid supports. Pores in S-layers are of regular size and morphology, and functional groups on the protein… CONTINUE READING
