 Gram postive and negative bacteria have key structural differences, which are important when considering treatment of diseases caused by these bacteria due to wider treatment implications. 

Bacterial cell walls in gram positive and negative bacteria have many differences. Both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria have a cell wall made up of peptidoglycan, a linear polypeptide consisting of alternating units of N-acetylmumeric acid and N-actylglucosamine.

Gram positive bacteria:

name cannot be a simple integer. Use a descriptive title


Gram negative bacteria:

name cannot be a simple integer. Use a descriptive title. There is a low degree of cross linkage which results in the formation of periplasmic gel, through which proteins can freely diffuse. Compression of the gel by sudden reduction in external osmotic pressure (osmotic shock) results in release  of enzymes and other proteins within the periplasm.
