    Bacteria and Archaea have membrane lipids with an opposite stereochemistry. The most plausible explanation for this differentiation implies an unstable heterochiral membrane stage. A recent study engineered Escherichia coli with a significant abundance of archaeal lipids showing higher robustness, disproving heterochirality as the driving force for this differentiation.
