  • Ultrastructure and morphogenesis of extremely halophilic neutrophilic (Halobacteriam distributum, Halococcus turkmenicus) and alkaliphilic (Natronobacterium pharaonis, Natronococcus occultus) archaeobacteria were studied. The H. distributum culture was rather polymorphous and produced cells of four types. Due to the irregular cell fission in different planes packages of various numbers of cells surrounded by a common capsule were formed. Resting forms (halocysts) with multilayer covers were… CONTINUE READING
