Model Structure
On the outside, the cell wall of gram-positive bacteria has a 20 to 80 nm thick murein layer (peptidoglycan), which is separated from the cell membrane by the narrow periplasm. Gram-negative bacteria, on the other hand, only have a 2 to 3 nm thick murein layer, the outside of which is covered in a thin lipoprotein layer. However, both groups develop an outer mucus layer (capsule), which covers the cell in an even thickness
