An atomic model of the conformation of peptidoglycan was taken as the basis for an analysis of packing patterns of the peptidoglycan strands in two- and three-dimensional arrangements. For the sake of clarity, glycan strands were approximated by cylindrical rods around which a continuous helix of possible peptide cross-linkage sites was arranged. Using the packing patterns obtained, several important properties of the murein network could be explained. These include variations in the degree of… CONTINUE READING
