MetaCyc Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0009279 - cell outer membrane

Synonyms: outer membrane of cell

Definition: A lipid bilayer that forms the outermost membrane of the cell envelope; enriched in polysaccharide and protein; the outer leaflet of the membrane contains specific lipopolysaccharide structures.

To annotate the plasma (cytoplasmic) membrane, see instead GO:0005886.
