Two strains of Myxococcus xanthus, and a strain of Myxococcus fulvus were compared with respect to their ability to entrap and lyse trichomes of the cyanobacterium Phormidium luridum var. olivaceae. All of these isolates form colonial aggregates and spherules in either axenic culture with a tryptone-salts medium or in a mixed culture with viable cyanobacterial cells as the sole source of nutrients. Light microscopy showed evidence of swarming activity on the surface of all three myxococci with… CONTINUE READING
