Abstract

Autoradiography of cell envelope ghosts obtained from a strain of which lacks two major outer membrane proteins has been used to demonstrate the polar concentration of another major outer membrane protein, protein. The β-lactam antibiotic cephalexin prevents the insertion of newly synthesized protein into the poles but removal of the antibiotic allows the randomly dispersed protein to migrate to the polar and possibly the septal areas of the cell. Labelling of whole cells with bacteriophage K3 has confirmed a polar concentration of protein.
