Recently, electron microscopic studies on the eubacteria Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Thermoanaerobacterium sp., and Escherichia coli have revealed the existence of cytoskeletal elements so far unknown in prokaryotes. The wall-less bacterium M. pneumoniae contains, in close vicinity to the inner face of the cytoplasmic membrane, a helically organized lining composed of protein elements that form a regular network of meshes that encloses the entire cytoplasm. Numerous regularly spaced pin-like… CONTINUE READING
