Monitoring surface chemical changes in the bacterial cell wall: multivariate analysis of cryo-x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy data.


Gram-negative bacteria can alter the composition of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) layer of the outer membrane as a response to different growth conditions and external stimuli. These alterations can, for example, promote attachment to surfaces and biofilm formation. The changes occur in the outermost layer of the cell and may consequently influence… (More)
