1. Cell walls of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were prepared and analysed. 2. Separate preparations were found to be reproducible, e.g. the phosphorus contents of all batches lay in the range 2.0-2.1%. 3. Ninhydrin-positive compounds in hydrolysates accounted for 43-46% of the cell wall and 79-87% of the nitrogen of the cell wall. Examination of the results for individual ninhydrin-positive compounds showed that 5-15% of the cell wall was murein and about 30% protein. 4. Trypsin treatment of crude… CONTINUE READING
