Question: (past exam) You discover that a bacterium infecting a patient contains lipopolysaccharides (G-). From this you could conclude that the bacterium A) does not use ATP as an energy carrier. B) has a cell wall with a thick layer of peptidoglycan. C) has both an inner and outer membrane. D) can form endospores. E) is a eukaryote.

Phospholipid bilayer hydrophobic tails hydrophilic head hydrophilic head Hydrophobic molecules will push out hydrophilic molecules, and vice-versa: - Think about mixing oil (hydrophobic) and water (hydrophilic) hydrophilic = water "loving" hydrophobic = water "fearing" water

Beveridge/Biological Photo Service • A single thin layer of peptidoglycan • Surrounded by an outer membrane of phospholipids and lipopolysaccharides . Thin, flexible structure. • Less penetrable by small molecules thanks to alternating hydrophobic and hydrophilic barriers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
