The existence of a cytologically demonstrable nucleus in the bacterial cell is no longer seriously in question. There is, however, no direct evidence that the Feulgen-positive staining bodies generally considered to represent the nuclear or chromosomic elements of the bacterium are actually carriers of genetic material. The chromosome theory of heredity has yet to be established for bacteria. Current acceptance of the bacterial nucleus as a cytological entity stems largely from the work of… CONTINUE READING
