STRUCTURE OF BACTERIA
Bacterial structure is considered at three levels.
Cell envelope proper: Cell wall and cell membrane.
Cellular element enclosed with in the cell envelope: Mesosomes, ribosomes, nuclear apparatus, polyamies and cytoplasmic granules.
Cellular element external to the cell envelope: Flagellum, Pilus and Glycocalyx.
