Structural changes in the envelope of Escherichia coli cells accompanying their lysis from without by bacteriophage T4 have been studied. The hypothesis concerning the role of collapse of membrane potential and formation of periplasmic vesicles in the process of lysis from without has been advanced.
We show that a set with an action of a locally finite-dimensional free partially commutative monoid and the corresponding semicubical set have isomorpic homology groups. We build a complex of finite length for the computing homology groups of any asynchronous transition system with finite maximal number of mutually independent events. We give examples of… (More)
