"if the proper concentration of a solute that does not pentrate the cell, such as sucrose, is added to the medium, the solute concentration outside the cell balences that inside the cell. under these conditions, lysozyme still digests the peptidoglycan but lysis doesnt occur and a protoplast is formed."
why would the concentrations of the solulte be the same inside and outside of the cell? and why does the solute have an effect on the lysis of the peptidoglycan? and why does a protoplast form?
... and the ones that won't
