Bacteria in the genus Pseudomonas produce a slime layer, which sometimes plays a role in diseases caused by Pseudomonas species. Slime layers enable certain bacteria to glide or slide along solid surfaces. The other type of glycocalyx, called a capsule, is highly organized and firmly attached to the cell wall. Capsules usually consist of polysaccharides, which may be combined with lipids and proteins, depending on the bacterial species. Knowledge of the chemical composition of capsules is useful in differentiating among different types of bacteria within a particular species; for example, different strains of Haemophilus influenzae, a cause of meningitis and ear infections in children, are identified by their capsular types.
