Role of Adhesion Zones in Bacterial Cell-Surface Function and Biogenesis

  • Manfred E. Bayer


The substantial amount of current information about the chemistry, morphology, and function of bacterial envelopes makes it possible to integrate this information into a meaningful view of this important cellular structure. It is obvious, however, that the technical complexity and the breadth of the subject matter makes it necessary to emphasize a particular approach and to describe the available data from the perspective of the individual investigator and his model of study.
