Corynebacterium ovis (C. pseudotuberculosis) was examined by electron microscopy after being subjected to various methods of fixation. The organism exhibited a fine structure similar to other corynebacterial species in the appearance of its cell wall, plasma membrane, nuclear apparatus, cytoplasmic matrix, wealth and complexity of intracytoplasmic membrane systems, and polyphosphate granules. An outstanding structural feature was the existence of an electron-dense, floccular layer external to… CONTINUE READING
