Another way to divide: the case of anammox bacteria.


Anammox bacteria exhibit remarkable and characteristic metabolic features that enable them to oxidize ammonium under anoxic conditions. Their ultrastructure is complex, with three compartments, comprising paryphoplasm, the riboplasm and the anammoxosome. The latter is surrounded by ladderane lipids, creating a lipid-surrounded organelle within the riboplasm… (More)
