Abstract

The cell surfaces of Listeria strains are composed of various compounds. These include peptidoglycan, teichoic acids and lipoteichoic acids. The structural features of these polymers are described and a macromolecular model of the organization of the cell wall of a Listeria cell is given. The occurrence of further components at the cell surface and biological aspects are briefly discussed.
