Abstract

SUMMARY: The structure conferring rigidity and shape on the complex cell wall of strain B has been isolated in a state virtually free from other wall material. It shows a characteristic surface pattern which, together with observations on its mode of disintegration by phage enzyme or lysozyme, indicates the fairly simple principles of its construction.
