The Gram stain is used to differentiate members of the domain Bacteria based on the comparative biochemistry of their cell envelopes.
The Gram stain reaction exploits the differential permeability of microbes with a comparatively thick, murein sacculus retaining the crystal violet–Gram’s iodine complex after extraction with the Gram’s decolorizer compared with microbes possessing a thinner, murein sacculus that will not retain the crystal violet–Gram’s iodine complex after extraction with decolorizer.
It is presumed that the inner membrane is extracted by the Gram decolorizer, but remains associated with the murein sacculus (1).
