II. THE PROKARYOTIC CELL: BACTERIA
B. PROKARYOTIC CELL STRUCTURE
4. STRUCTURES LOCATED OUTSIDE THE CELL WALL
The overall purpose of this Learning Object is to list the various cellular components that are often found external to the bacterial cell wall.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES FOR THIS SECTION
In this section on Prokaryotic Cell
Structure we are looking at the various organelles or structures that make up
a bacterium. As mentioned in the introduction to this section, a typical bacterium
usually consists of:
We will now look at the following structures located outside the cell wall of many bacteria.
