Unique Characteristics of Cyanobacterial Glycerolipids

  • Norio Murata

Abstract

The cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) are classified as Gram-negative bacteria (Stanier et al., 1976). Their cell envelope is composed of the outer membrane and plasma (or cytoplasmic) membrane separated by a peptidoglycan layer. In addition, they have intracellular photosynthetic membranes, i.e., the thylakoid membranes. Their membrane structure is similar to that of eukaryotic plant chloroplast, which contains outer and inner envelope membranes, surrounding the thylakoid membranes.
