Bacterial Cell Walls “One of the most important features of nearly all prokaryotic cells is their cell wall which maintains cell shape, provides physical protection, and prevents the cell from bursting in a hypotonic environment.” p. 534, “In a hypertonic environment, most prokaryotes lose water and shrink away form their cell walls (plasmolyze), like other walled cells. Severe water loss inhibits the reproduction of prokaryotes, which explains why salt can be used to preserve certain foods, such as pork and fish.” pp. 534-5, Campbell & Reece (2005)
