Abstract

SUMMARY: Isolated bacterial wall material from four Gram-positive and four Gram-negative organisms bound crystal violet as well as or better than intact bacteria. Dye binding ability varied between species. There was no correlation between the dye binding ability of isolated wall material and the Gram characteristics of the intact bacteria.
