Myxococcus xanthus can sporulate in either of two ways: at the end of the program of fruiting body development or after exposure of growing cells to certain reagents such as concentrated glycerol. Fruiting body sporulation requires starvation, while glycerol sporulation requires rapid growth, and since the two types of spores are structurally somewhat different, it has generally been assumed that the two processes are different. However, a Tn5 Lac insertion mutation, Omega7536, has been… CONTINUE READING
