The structure of the S-layers from eight mesophilic Bacillaceae was investigated by freeze-etching of whole cells. The S-layer lattices from Bacillus alvei CCM 2051 and B. circulans CCM 1048 exhibited oblique symmetry. Square S-layer lattices were identified for B. polymyxa CCM 1459, B. circulans CCM 2048 and B. sphaericus strains CCM 2120 and CCM 2177. Two superimposed, structurally different S-layers were detected for B. brevis strains CCM 1089 and CCM 1463. In both organisms the outer S… CONTINUE READING
