  • teichoic
  • The primary structure of the peptidoglycan and the teichoic acids of two coryneform isolates from the surface flora of French cooked cheeses, CNRZ 925 and CNRZ 926, have been determined. (uni-muenchen.de)
  • contributes
  • Peptidoglycan recycling (colored red) contributes to the pool of UDP-MurNAc by conversion of 1,6-anhydro-MurNAc (AnhMurNAc) through the AnhMurNAc kinase (AnmK), MurNAc 6-phosphate phosphatase (not yet identified), anomeric GlcNAc/MurNAc kinase (AgmK), and MurNAc α-1-phosphate-uridylyl transferase (MurU). (nih.gov)
  • sugars
  • Peptidoglycan is composed of an overlapping lattice of two sugars, N-acetyl glucosamine (NAG) and N-acetyl muramic acid (NAM) cross-linked by amino acid bridges. (wordpress.com)
  • receptor
  • This study shows that PGRP-SD acted upstream of PGRP-LC as an extracellular receptor to enhance peptidoglycan-mediated activation of Imd signaling . (sdbonline.org)
  • These results demonstrate that cleaning behavior can be triggered through recognition of diaminopimelic acid-type bacterial peptidoglycan by its receptor PGRP-LC . (sdbonline.org)
  • organism
  • While peptidoglycan cell walls will not determine the shape of an organism, they will help it hold its shape, ensuring that it is not compromised. (wisegeek.com)
  • A peptidoglycan-rich organism will be highlighted with the dye, creating a very detailed, crisp, high contrast image which can be used to gather information about what the organism looks like inside. (wisegeek.com)
  • gene
  • Most gene clusters encoding multiprotein complexes of the bacterial cell envelope, such as conjugation and secretion systems, Type IV pili, and flagella, bear a gene encoding an enzyme with peptidoglycan hydrolase activity. (springer.com)
  • molecules
  • Also, the enzyme called lysozyme, which is found in the saliva and the tears of humans, attacks peptidoglycan by breaking the connection between the sugar molecules. (encyclopedia.com)
  • MeSH
  • Peptidoglycan" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus, MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) . (harvard.edu)
  • strands
  • Local, MreB-guided insertion of material into the peptidoglycan network naturally orders the glycan strands and causes cells to twist left-handedly during elongational growth. (pnas.org)
