Sir: In the course of our study on the structural changes occurring in bacterial endospores during germination" we have recently found that the X-ray diffraction patterns of spores were significantly different from those of vegetative cells. These findings suggest that it may be possible to obtain further informa tions on the cellular structures specific to bacterial spores by means of X-ray diffracto metry. The present paper describes in outline an experiment concerning the comparison of the X… CONTINUE READING
