Commitment to sporulation was examined by means of both endotrophic sporulation and rejuvenation experiments. In both cases, a point of commitment to the completion of sporulation occurred at stage II. With 2 x 10(8) cells/ml, the process by which commitment occurred required 0.5 mm Mg(2+), 10.0 mm phosphate, and an energy source (minimum of 5.0 mm acetate… CONTINUE READING
