bacteria comprises the inner and outer membranes, which are separated by the hydrophilic periplasm. The outer membrane functions as a selective barrier that prevents the entry of many small molecules into the cell and consists of an asymmetric bilayer comprising phospholipids, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and lipid-anchored lipoproteins.
