The ultrastructure of seven Thiobacillus species was studied. The structure of their cell envelopes is similar, if not identical, to that found in other gram-negative bacteria. Obvious differences were noted in the middle layer of the cell envelope of the seven cultures. Polyhedral inclusion bodies were apparent in four of the organisms: T. thioparus, T. neapolitanus, T. intermedius, and T. thiooxidans. Lamellar bodies, similar to those present in certain photosynthetic bacteria were found in a… CONTINUE READING
