What is the importance of chemistry when talking about Chlamydia

I am looking for information involving the chemicals involved in maintaining the cellular wall integrity pre-host cell replication.

I already have some information about disulfide bonds and sugar gateways in the pre-host cell membrane. Other searches have directed my attention to anti-oxidants (ascorbic acid) and the effects of cell membrane reactability but these publications have not been confirmed by any research material.
The question I am trying to answer is one that focuses exclusively on the relationship between Chemistry and Chylamydia.

My question is then "What is the importance of chemistry when talking about Chlamydia?"

Solution Summary

The solution provides a detailed explanation regarding the chemistry of Chlamydia, along with reaction equations.
