A neutron small-angle scattering study was performed to determine the thickness and the scattering density profile of isolated peptidoglycan sacculi of Escherichia coli W7 in aqueous suspension (D2O). The maximum thickness (7 +/- 0.5 nm) of the sacculus from the exponential-phase cells was large enough to suggest the existence of a more-than-single-layered architecture. The experimental density profile across the thickness of the sacculus did not allow an unambiguous differentiation between a… CONTINUE READING
