name: Gram-negative-bacterium-type cell wall
namespace: cellular_component
def: "The peptidoglycan layer of the Gram-negative cell envelope. In Gram-negative cells the peptidoglycan is relatively thin (1-2nm) and is linked to the outer membrane by lipoproteins. In Gram-negative cells the peptidoglycan is too thin to retain the primary stain in the Gram staining procedure and therefore cells appear red after Gram stain." [GOC:mlg, ISBN:0815108893]
