Cell wall glycopolymers (CWGs) of gram-positive bacteria have gained increasing interest with respect to their role in colonization and infection. In most gram-positive pathogens they constitute a large fraction of the cell wall biomass and represent major cell envelope determinants. Depending on their chemical structure they modulate interaction with complement factors and play roles in immune evasion or serve as nonprotein adhesins that mediate, especially under dynamic conditions, attachment… CONTINUE READING
