During germination, Streptomyces antibioticus arthrospores passed through stages: darkening, swelling and germ tube emergence. The first stage, darkening, whose main features were a decrease in absorbance and a loss of refractility, only required exogenous divalent cations (Ca2+, Mg2+ or Fe2+) and energy that can be obtained from the spore reserves. This stage was blocked by agents that inhibit ATP formation but not by antibiotics that inhibit macromolecular synthesis. The second stage… CONTINUE READING
