Where can I find info on the physical appearance of TB cell wall structures?

Could anyone please let me know where might I find more information on
the actual physical appearance of:
Dimycolate / Cord Factor
I am very grateful for any information. At this point I am not sure if the physical appearance has been determined. If it has not been I would appreciate any opinions on what they should look like based on function.

Or like bob1 said: use expasy..
But how detailed do you need it?
I might be helpfull if you got hold of some picture made of the bacterium with a good microscope?
But are you planning on really drawing a structure of the cell with all the components in it?
It might also be helpfull if you check a general microbiology textbook like brooks to start with.

Regarding how detailed I want to get- as detailed as science has discovered and as realistic as possible.
I want it to be like the viewer was small enough to go inside the bacterium.

(check http://proteopedia.o...ex.php/PDB_code for pdb codes)
Its not really for micro-organisms (not for a shematic drawing), but for more for proteins etc.. But it can be helpfull for you to get an idea and also some of the structures of the wall of a bacteria is based on proteins you find on that website.
and check http://www.nsrrc.org...2010/p60-63.pdf
To give you a more practical idea about what I mean.
(you can paint or draw a few of those proteins structes etc... because in most drawings they never show these and draw a cell wall as a "circle" but this not correct...

I think its best you make a new post (topic) to try to get an answer to your question.
