Gram positive cell wall. Artwork showing the structure of a Gram positive bacterial cell wall. It consists of an inner (cytoplasmic) phospholipid membrane (bottom) surrounded by a think layer of peptidoglycan (blue). The membrane contains transmembrane proteins that facilitate the movement of molecules into and out of the cell.
