Electron microscopy of cellular division in Sarcina lutea.


Electron micrographs of sections of dividing cells of bacteria have been (lescribed in several papers. In one report, Chapman and Hillier (1953) described the formation in Bacillus cereus of a transverse cell wall by the centripetal growth of a ring of cell wall material. No cytoplasmic membrane was observed in these cells. In another report, Chapman (1959b… (More)
