Glycan chain

Figure 3.32 Components and Structure of Peptidoglycan Chemical structure of W-acetylglucosamine (NAG) and W-acetylmuramic acid (NAM); the ring structures of the two molecules are glucose. Glycan chains are composed of alternating subunits of NAG and NAM joined by covalent bonds. Adjacent glycan chains are cross-linked via their tetrapeptide chains to create peptidoglycan.
