The peptidoglycan of Bacillus cereus RSVF1, a close relative of Bacillus anthracis, has several distinguishing features: the overwhelming majority of cross-linked muropeptides are dimers, higher oligomers are only present in minute quantities; and virtually all muropeptides lack the N-acetyl group from glucosamine residues, thus explaining resistance of the cell walls to lysozyme.
