Discussion :: Bacteria Morphology - Section 1 (Q.No.23)
|Diksha Singla said: (Dec 27, 2016)|
|The periplasm is a concentrated gel-like matrix in the space between the inner cytoplasmic membrane and the bacterial outer membrane called the periplasmic space in gram-negative bacteria. It has been found using cryo-electron microscopy, that a much smaller periplasmic space is present in gram-positive bacteria.
The periplasm may constitute up to 40% of the total cell volume of gram-negative bacteria, and this is a much smaller percentage in gram-positive bacteria.
So option A &B Both correct then how we can choose option A?

|A & B both correct because they have layers inner and outer.|

|There is no outer membrane in gram-positive bacteria.|

|Both gram negative and positive bacteria have periplasmic space; gram negative has higher volume.|
